    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Jul 12, 2016

    Gates and the various artists are knocking it out of the park. This could have easily been a cheap tie in to the show that was boring and only made to make a quick buck off the success of the show. But the creative team gives it their all in a story that is both fun and thought provoking. It's one of the best DC books right now which is saying a lot considering how good of a place DC is in right now. I don't just recommend this to fans of the show or fans of Supergirl as a character even though those people will absolutely adore this. I recommend this, and the entire series so far, to anyone that just likes good stories. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 23, 2016

    Sterling Gates finishes up his great Brainiac story and this issue (and the last) show how good this book can be. It stands firmly on it's own instead of just cashing in on the television show and I'm really enjoying it so far. The only downer this issue was how easy everything was tied up, but the art and the cyberpunk (is that still a thing?) story were kick ass and easily recommended to any type of Supergirl fans.

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Mar 22, 2016

    This was a solid issue ending the Dox arc quickly and neatly. The high points are the Winn news and the hints at the big bad. We also get the Rabiah Zinoman character added to the cast. The action is nicely rendered. While not as whiz-bang in my mind as the Rampage arc, this was a solid brick in this larger story, adding to both this book and the show as well! Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 22, 2016

    Since the first storyline was three installments I figured we'd get more of the same here so this one just felt a little rushed by wrapping it up in two. I like the expansion on Winn's life with some of what he's been involved in over the years and I loved the off the cuff turtle reference from Kara in regards to James, a delightful little nod for the fans. With "classic" Vril Dox being a favorite of mine, this incarnation certainly isn't bad but it's not something that's going to excite me terribly, particularly considering the sad state of anything "Legion" related in the DCU at this point in time. Sterling captures the feel of the series well once again and Mhan's artwork is spot on with some great spreads and layouts that made it fun to just look over for the artwork alone. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jul 7, 2016

    The first half of this issue comes up aces, setting the stage for a looming threat while delivering tense storytelling via flashback. The second half drags on, but has one heck of a cliffhanger that'll make me come back for more. Read Full Review
