    Everything from the writing to the pencils and the colors is fantastic. This issue is beautifully executed. The pacing is perfect, the dialogue is interesting and will suck you in. Even though it's a story we have seen before, it's still a ton of fun to see how this particular creative team executes the tale. If you're looking for a straight up super-powered superhero story, this is definitely a book you will want to pick up. Start from the first issue, its been a fantastic series so far.

    We get our first exposure to green Kryptonite and it hurts even more than before. The script draws you in right away and the pacing is perfect. The art, pencils and colors were all done very well. You're going to want to jump on this bandwagon as things are getting interesting which I never thought I would say about a Supergirl comic book.

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 19, 2011

    Anyways, this issue traveled at a much faster pace than the earlier ones, semi-solidified her relationship with Kal (at least they weren't fighting and she was listening), introduced a new arch-villain, showcased a new power, and dropped more hints about Supergirl's origin. Now that is a pretty packed book. What's better is that the characterization seemed right. She could have fought Superman more. She could have called humans gnats or cavemen. She could have been portrayed as disaffected or apathetic or bitter. Instead she was portrayed as strong and a bit sad. And that's okay given where we are in her journey. Read Full Review

    Supergirl remains my favorite Superman family book from the New 52 after three issues and it shows no signs of changing my mind. Read Full Review

    Green-Johnson craft a very complex, believable, likable Supergirl, but seem less inspired in the creation of her first villain. Nonetheless, a thoughtful, enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    This book has its faults, that's for sure. But aside from a nitpick coming from a Superfan of The Original Kryptonian, it reads really well. Let's just hope that it doesn't get stuck in the same rut that the previous runs found themselves in. Go for something new guys without simply adding another comma to some guy's bank account!

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Nov 22, 2011

    But the story just seems to be floundering, as the plot just takes us from one fight scene to the next. I'm all for action-packed comics, but I'd like a little more story squeezed in along the way. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - T. A. Ewart Nov 23, 2011

    The costume needs to change from the waist down. Every full frontal shot of Supergirl reaffirms how silly it looks, and how painful it must be to be worn. It's a weak design that should be remedied posthaste, if only out of respect for the character. The new power that Supergirl demonstrates is the jump off moment for this book. There is no reason to give Supergirl an additional power, not when Superman's power set are continuously bemoaned as too great. Green's statement that yellow sunlight doesn't have to affect all Kryptonians the same is malarkey; it's red kryptonite in disguise and an attempt to make Supergirl more appealing by being superficial instead of giving her what she truly needs: a good story. Save your money, lads. It's better spent elsewhere. Read Full Review

    "Supergirl" is a book I really wanted to like. And the first issue, though too decompressed, surprised me in some good ways. Unfortunately here, the surprises seem to have disappeared, and what we're left with is not much. Read Full Review
