    Of course, this is something of a bittersweet issue. Because as great a Mike Johnson's characterization is here, he is moving on. While I think it took a while for this Supergirl title to find its compass, I think it was pointed in the right direction with Kara heading towards optimism and heroism. And it is always good to see Mahmud Asrar on art. His stuff sings this issue. Read Full Review

    Mahmud Asrar's art is distinct as always. His style has been giving this book more of an independent feel compared to other supe Read Full Review

    I am a little biased when it comes to Supergirl. She is hands down, my favourite comic character (except for maybe Dogbert) and I would buy this book simply to try and keep the sales up. I was not as big a Power Girl fan as I really didn't see much of her before Crisis, and after Crisis; she wasn't the same character for a really long time.( I do buy Worlds' Finest as well, I always did like the Huntress.) But I have to say that this was a little bit fun, and I am enjoying this series immensely and I hope that these characters crossover a little more often. Read Full Review

    Drawn with gusto by Mahmud Asrar, the battle is the in-your-face kind that makes the panels feel like they're shaking with each blow. Although, a few of the big hits are more concerned with the superhero pose the girls are striking rather than how they're striking their blows, which makes the images feel stagnant. The big topic of discussion will no doubt be how Karen winds up in her pre-New 52 threads, and I'll tell you that she damages her current one and a Kryptonian computer offers her a new costume. That's awful nice of the computer and all, but it gave her one with a hole in it. Read Full Review

    It appears Power Girl is sticking around for another month giving us double the Kara fun which means I'll likely pick up next month's issue as well to see where this new friendship is headed. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Kassim Mirza Apr 19, 2013

    This Lex Luthor story line isn't extremely stimulating, but it does add a dash of complexity. It'll be interesting to see what happens to Kara and Karen. Will the paradox be allowed to continue? Will one of them have to take over the other one's role? I'm not sure, but I'm excited to see what happens. Supergirl #19 is a decent jumping on point for newer readers. Those who have been keeping up with the title will also find all the elements they've come to love from this book. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 22, 2013

    Of late, "Supergirl" has been running a risk of becoming a modern stand-in for the old Superman team-up title, "DC Comics Presents" or even "Superman Family" with the string of guest stars. Power Girl, however, works quite well, brings a fair amount of potential and plays nicely with her pseudo-self. This is a fun issue that is certain to give readers something to smile about and enjoy. The best part is that Power Girl appears set to stick around for at least one more issue, so Johnson and Asrar can continue to plead the case for adding an "S" to the end of this book's title. After all, it's not an "S," on Krypton it means "hope." Read Full Review
