    Overall, Supergirl remains a strong read in a string of strong reads that the Superman Family books currently are. Theyre definitely worth the monthly wait. Read Full Review

    This issue is a bit hokey and a bit heavyhanded at times, but is ultimately a sweet tale that is an interesting character study. Given how "damaged" and downright unlikable Supergirl's personality became over the last few runs prior to the Gates/Igleera. The one could use a bit of polish, but is still a great read.

    "Supergirl" under Gates and Igle has turned into a solid, enjoyable book. I like their take on the character, and on the whole the stories they've told are fun. Here's hoping for more short, sweet stories like this down the line. Read Full Review

    Even with a light amount of action, this issue is an interesting character piece inside the mind of Supergirl. There is also a lot of exploration into what makes New Krypton click and readers interested in both elements will not be disappointed. A calm issue, full of emotion, is a nice change before we get flung into the next action packed adventure and should really be enjoyed. Read Full Review
