Featuring the debut of the new art team of Ed Benes & Alex Lei, and an all-new direction for Supergirl!

    I hope the return of the pre-Crisis Supergirl sparks some interest in this title, as I imagine this book could stand a nice little boost in its circulation numbers, and this book has always had itself an engaging lead character & Peter David's kept the character jumping through some pretty interesting hoops.

Questions remain. Is Kara Zor-El The Kara, and, whether or not real, what are DC's plans for her? Let me put it this way. The sense of a sixteen ton weight poised above my head has not gone away.
