Careful what you wish for! Kara may have found a home away from Earth, but its at a price that Superboy will have to pay to a major Superman foe!

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jul 19, 2013

    As a result, this is a perfect middle chapter in an arc. The plot lines simmered, there is progress, and we are moving towards a climactic finale. It will be hard for anyone to replace Mahmud Asrar but I thought Diogenes Neves was solid here. He would have been on my short list of artists I would love to see take over this book (including Aaron Lopresti, Francis Portela, or Daniel HDR). Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jul 20, 2013

    Supergirl is still missing the spark to be a sleeper hit, but if you enjoy slower comics with a focus on character, you should probably check this out. The art is excellent, the writing strong, and the layouts lively. Especially with hints that one of Superman's greatest enemies might be showing up in the near future, this is a great place to jump onto the adventures of Krypton's last citizen. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Daren Taveras Jul 22, 2013

    Supergirl #22 is a step up from its predecessor. The artwork does have its hiccups, but the action sequences more than make up for it. Cyborg Superman steals the spotlight and the combination of the writing and artwork make this comic a must-buy. Read Full Review

    Comics Crux - Chris Lear Jul 19, 2013

    After having two planets fail her (one because it exploded, the other because people suck), Kara is finally beginning to realize the strength she has within herself. Supergirl #22 is a solid, one-two, storytelling punch both written and visually that ever-so-well depicts the beginning of a young woman's journey to self-discovery. I'm a sucker for solid character development. This has it. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Jul 31, 2013

    Supergirl #22 begins a new arc for Kara Zor-El as the Cyborg Superman (and his mysterious master you'll recognize if you read Grant Morrison'sAction Comics run) takes an increased interest in her. It's not often than strong skepticism about a character can be washed away in a single issue, but Michael Alan Nelson manages to do just that by delivering the most fun, most interesting, and most focused issue of this series in a long time.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 22, 2013

    Whereas most of New 52 Superman titles still feel a bit off as the character on display still hasn't grown into the iconic Man of Steel, I've enjoyed the Supergirl issues I've read. They haven't quite grabbed my attention to add it to my pull-list every month, but in the gritty New 52 Kara's humor, self-deprecation, and willingness to not take herself too seriously is a welcome salve. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Tony Couto Jul 21, 2013

    Supergirl #22 establishes interesting characters but doesn't dig deeper into their pathos. It instead offers predictable scenarios and cartoonish revelations. Read Full Review
