    Overall, Supergirl is still ranking very near the top of the monthly must read list. This book is delivering in all categories right now, and leaves the reader looking forward to next months events with great anticipation. Gates continues to write characters you really get close to, and feel for, in Supergirl, something all comic book writers should be striving to do. Read Full Review

    Not to mention that Jamal Igle is more than capable of conveying all necessary emotion on his own. Igle is easily the best asset of this series right now. His art has only improved since coming on board last year. It's very clean and expressive. Despite a large cast of characters, everyone has a very distinct look. Igle's continued presence helps elevate this book over the rest, where artist switch-ups have often been the name of the game lately. Supergirl isn't a perfect series by any means, but I'm certainly interested to see where it heads in the next arc. Read Full Review

    With Superman being unseen in his titles, this is the Super-title to grab if you need a fix of a Kryptonian wearing the crest of the house of El. Kara is a teenager, learning her place in the world "- two worlds actually -- but we've all been there. She's only different from any teenager in that she can fly, has super-hearing, is nigh invulnerable, and, well, you get the point. At the core, Gates makes this character a readable character. Igle and crew make this book a book worth looking at, again and again. While it may not be all ages, due to some pretty violent imagery, it is a book worth sharing with those friends who never quite believe you when you tell them how entertaining, fun, or enjoyable comic books are.
