A dangerous new foe has it in for Cat Grant, and as much as Supergirl'd like to see Cat get what's coming to her, The Girl of Steel has no choice but to get involved! This one's got it all Arkham Asylum, Superwoman, the Justice League of America, and a couple of twists and turns you won't see coming!

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Dec 18, 2010

    Now that Nick Spencer is off the book, I hope James Peaty picks up the ball and runs with it. He and Bernard Chang have huge shoes to fill. All good things must come to an end I suppose. Thanks Sterling and Jamal. It has been a couple of great years to be a Supergirl fan and your work was the biggest reason. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 19, 2010

    Gates and Igle leave this book in a very different place from where they picked it up, and the finale - "The Day I Needed Supergirl" - makes for a nice reflection on the run of the series. Not only have Gates and Igle influenced Supergirl, but they have left a definite impression on the characters that surround Supergirl. After two years, Gates and Igle are moving on. I don't know to where, but if it's half as enjoyable as their work here, it will be well worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Dec 20, 2010

    While this is a far cry from some of the best issues in the overallstellar Gates/Igle run on this series, it does close out their time on the title on a strong note. The creative team did a fine job of giving Supergirl a strong supporting cast and in fleshing out the character, both of which are on full display in this finely crafted comic. While this is by no means groundbreaking, it is fun, well put together, and definitely worth your money. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - David Pinckney Dec 16, 2010

    It's a great issue. It's a lot of fun and the writing in it is top notch along with the artwork. The only part that really upsets me about this issue is that it is Sterling Gates' last issue of this amazing run of Supergirl. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dec 16, 2010

    Great character work overcomes the completely unoriginal villain, but just barely. It's about time Supergirl gets some original villains of her own instead of yet another watered-down version of her cousin's gallery of foes. Still, this issue ends Kara Zor-El's year on a high note, and sets her up for better things to come. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 21, 2010

    Also included here is another appearance of Superwoman (hopefully the last we'll see for a long time) and a humorous frame of Supergirl knocking out the inexplicable Composite Bat-Santa (which isn't explained or referred to in the rest of the issue) as part of her nightly patrol. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review
