    The art fits the comic-- lively and powerful. In some poses, both Supergirl and Superwoman look quite unattractive. But maybe that is for the better. It helps reinforce the impression that this is a serious story about very conflicted characters and not some cheesecake feature with girls in skintight clothes. Read Full Review

    Finally, the issue includes yet another installment of Origins and Omens, and although I'm tired of complaining about this feature, I will say this: the most damning critique I can throw at this running feature is that it only works when the writer does his best job to brush past the framing device and continue whatever story he was telling in the main feature. This is what Sterling Gates does in this issue, and it's the only reason his Origins and Omens didn't read as an unwelcome interruption. Read Full Review

    But that's not enough to overcome the issue's weaknesses. However, even with a weak issue, this comic is still far better than any other version of Supergirl in recent memory. Here's hoping the next issue is back on track. Read Full Review

    Add in an "Origins & Omens" back-up drawn by Matthew Clark (is it me or should these back-up features really be called, "Who's going to die soon in this book and possibly come back as a Black Lantern Zombie later this year?"), and "Supergirl" #38 is a nice, solid comic. Kudos to editor Matt Idelson for finding just the right creative team for this book; it's taken a few years, but it's finally found its way. Read Full Review
