    Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle reunite to tell an epic, oversized battle royale between the Girl of Steel and a mysterious, diabolical new foe! I guess the diabolical new foe is the Insect Queen. Read Full Review

    In short? More like this, please. Gates has had "Supergirl" pulled into far too many other big "events" and stories over the last year. Maybe 2010 can be the year that Gates gets to have "Supergirl" stand on its own two feet? Let's hope so. Read Full Review

    Not bad, not bad at all. The story was good enough to make me want to get the past couple of issues so I could see what was up with Silver Banshee and that cop, plus the cliffhanger has me eagerly anticipating the next issue. Well, I guess I might as well stop talking and get to SG #50. Read Full Review

    With a few exceptions, Supergirl has been less about the conflicts between Earth and New Krypton and more about Supergirl herself. Shes been portrayed as a uniquely feminine hero driven by her passion, while proving clever enough to pursue mysteries and outwit her opponent. In short, shes a good character in a good comic book.

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Jan 31, 2010

    This issue has all of the makings of a great issue, but falls apart in execution. There is simply too much story to be contained successfully in one issue, so neither of the two major story beats ends up really being that successful. Matt Camp does his best to salvage the issue, but struggles with his own major inconsistencies too much to save this one. Read Full Review
