Continuing the new arc by the freshly minted creative team of writer Nick Spencer (JIMMY OLSEN, T.H.U.N.D.E.R. AGENTS, Morning Glories) and artist Bernard Chang (WONDER WOMAN, SUPERMAN)! Someone has set his sights on killing the next generation of heroes, and his latest targets are Robin and Batgirl! Who is this new foe, and how is he connected to some of Superman's deadliest foes? Supergirl had better find out fast, before it's time for another Bat-related R.I.P. story!

    If you haven't been reading Supergirl, then you are really missing out here. We're getting some really good and really intriguing stories that shouldn't be missed. When you get the chance, I highly recommend going into your local comic shop and start picking up this comic. Read Full Review

    Bernard Chang continues to do stellar stuff here. I am glad he has remembered the new short haircut Kara is sporting. And his action sequences have always been top notch. Will this book remain Peaty's after this arc? When will DC let us know? Or is the 'fear of cancellation' still in the air such that DC isn't going to name anyone long term. I'd love to hear Peaty come out and talk about the character. Read Full Review

    IGN - Feb 16, 2011

    If Peaty's script is able to hone in on his ability to construct effective character moments and Chang can get his artwork to loosen up just a tad, Supergirl could fast track itself right back to the quality it stood under Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle's leadership. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 23, 2011

    There are a couple of nagging issues here (the most obvious being the continuity issue surrounding Blue Beetle's involvement in this story), but it is FUN and a far cry from the dreary story arcs the character was stuck in just a few months ago. Definitely worth a look. Read Full Review

    I still recommend Supergirl, if only because the team is telling a story, something that is absent from many comics these days. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Walt Richardson Feb 18, 2011

    Overall, while this is a nice enough comic with some solid art, it's hardly above the curve. I'll probably keep reading until the end of this arc, but unless it takes a big step up in quality by then, I don't see myself reading much further. It's a shame, considering how much of a supporter of this book I was when Gates was onboard. Read Full Review
