    This wasn't the most exciting issue, and I do find myself getting a little bored of the pattern that this book has fallen into, where each month Supergirl finds herself fighting the latest threat that Lilith has thrown her way. Now the addition of Mary Marvel has liven things up a bit, though it has also served to place Supergirl into a second banana role when it comes to the fighting. However, Peter David's sense of humor did leave me smiling a couple times during this issue, and the idea that each issue is moving us closer to issue number 75 has lent a feeling of building excitement to the plot involving Lilith. Longtime fans should also take note that this issue does offer up the reason why Lilith is gunning for Supergirl, and that it neatly links this latest feud to one from earlier in the series. Still, I'll be glad to see this book kick off its new direction, as right now the book is starting to deliver a been there done that sameness to its stories. Read Full Review

    What utterly failed in my opinion was Lillith's vignette. All this scene shows is how dependent the villains are as characters upon the hero. We don't mind spending time with heroes outside their battles, but villains really only have one purpose. Lillith's monologue in the presence of (yuck) Bizarro Supergirl is annoying.
