    On this Thanksgiving week, I feel I need to thank Mike Johnson for realizing just who Supergirl is at her core, even if this Supergirl is having a rougher beginning than prior incarnations. And great stuff, as always, by Mahmud Asrar. Read Full Review

    This was yet another solid Supergirl issue. Mike Johnsons' run has been nothing but good and he deserves so much credit. Kara has always been a great character, and I think that this New 52 version of her may be my favourite yet. The art was once again awesome, and it seems to be getting better and better with each issue. I think I may have said that in my review of issue #13, and the art is even better this month than last months issue. This issue left on a cliffhanger, and I cant wait to see what happens in the next issue. This is a series that deserves to be read, and it does really deserve to be one of DC's best selling books.

    Kara has been using her fists to solve her problems from issue one and day one, and there wasno loss of schadenfreude watching her get kicked around for a wee bit. H'El presents a problemwhere Kara finally has to think. She has made horrible decisions thus far, and acknowledges the major one this issue, which is her continued distancefrom Superman. While it's still early to see where and how far it goes, it was better to see Kara using her brain, if only to a rudimentary decision, rather her balls (eggs?) to the wall actions of the previous year.

    Den Of Geek! - Mike Cecchini Nov 24, 2012

    We're still in set-up mode for this storyline, despite being two chapters into it and while the pacing of the comic itself is consistent, I was left wondering whether it was necessary for me to buy the previous chapter that appeared in Superboy #14. Other than wondering how Superboy ended up in the state he's in when he appears in this comic, the events of the previous chapter seem to have no bearing on this one. I hope that the next chapter (in Superman #14) proves me wrong. Regardless, I don't blame the creators, as they've still managed to put together an interesting issue. I'm just not sure that two issues of set-up were required. But a strong villain is a powerful selling point, and this issue has a dynamite ending that leads nicely into Superman #14.

    This was where the H'el on Earth arc is starting to get good. We have the entire family starting to come together and we have a history of the antagonist somewhat revealed. From here on in, we're going to get to the meat and potatoes of the story. Read Full Review

    Mike Johnson and Mahmud Asrar have been working on this series since the relaunch and while they've given some nice building blocks for the Last Daughter of Krypton, I feel like they really haven't been able to give Kara a true chance to shine. There have been glimpses of what could be, but after fifteen issues, I would expect that we'd have a motivation for the heroine and a direction for her to grow. As of this issue, she finally learns English and is ensnared in a crossover she'd do much better without. Read Full Review
