    Sterling Gates really knows how to write an on-going book that is consistantly awesome. I've read about 6-10 random issues of this series and they've all been phenomenal. It's nice to see Jamie Grant on this book, along with the great pencils of Jamal Igle. As of right now, this is my favorite Kryptonian book. It's always solid and a lot of fun. I highly recommend this book. It's my pick of the week. You will not be disappointed. Read Full Review

    If you didn't notice, there are new inkers and a new cover artist for this issue, bringing a new art direction for the series. It's nothing drastically new or different, let alone groundbreaking. Overall, a good issue from one of DC's unsung series. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Aug 19, 2010

    I thought this was a very good issue, really pushing the arc along. While the action was great, it really was the characterization of Supergirl that shined brightest here, especially that moment where she remembers Reactron. Supergirl has really been scarred by New Krypton. I am so glad that Gates and Igle are exploring that rather than shying away from it. If only she didn't slug Dr. Light! The issue boasts 3 inkers and it is sometimes apparent. The last pages look much smoother than the earlier ones. But Jamal Igle's pencils are solid, Supergirl's expressions saying so much.

    I've been enjoying "Supergirl" from Gates and Igle more than I ever thought I would enjoy a "Supergirl" comic, and eagerly anticipate each subsequent issue. This Bizarrogirl storyline seems like it is going to be among the highlights of the crew's work on the title and also makes for a wonderful spot for new readers to jump in. Gates and Igle have something good here, and Amy Reeder's cover presents a nice peek into the wonderment inside this issue. Read Full Review

    All in all, its a fun issue and an engaging read. This is Gates telling a Supergirl story without the net of the other Metropolis heroes to catch him, and he succeeded in making something that I hungrily want to read more of. Ill take that any day. Read Full Review

    I’d love to write more. I’d love to thrill readers with wit, be it either negative or positive concerning this little book, but I think I’ve said it all. It’s not bad, it’s not good. It doesn’t stand for anything. It’s just there. It’s Supergirl #55. Read Full Review

    There are definitely some cool things going on in this issue that make it worth a word; unfortunately, the craftsmanship around those things simply isn't up to snuff for this title. For starters, Read Full Review
