    This issue shows that there doesn't need to be a lot of action for Supergirl to truly shine, which is why this issue has become one of my favourites, and if it's anything to go by, the rest of this arc is going to be truly exceptional. Read Full Review

    But this Doomed cliffhanger didn't have the impact that the first part of the issue did. It is Kara, her interacting with Michael, her drive to help, that kiss ... all of that is what I loved in this issue. For the first time, in a long time, this book read like Supergirl. And that made me smile. I can only hope that Kate Perkins and Mike Johnson don't take the character backwards in characterization. This is the Supergirl most fans of the character want to read.

    Several panels (including the cover) present Kara in a way that's reminiscent of "an angel that's fallen from heaven." She has come to Earth not to fit in, not to be understood, but to protect and serve. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Aug 21, 2014

    The Superman: Doomed storyline has officially made its way to this title and Bedard tries to make the most of things. There are a few awkward scenes of exposition featured here that explain the recent happenings behind Doomed, and while these scenes do take up valuable real estate, Bedard quickly gets beyond that to tell his story which essentially boils down to boy meets (Super)girl. Michael, Kara's potential new love interest, seems like a nice enough character, though time will tell if this proves to be an asset to the series. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Joel Raivid Aug 21, 2014

    Nevertheless, this is not the fault of the creative team (I assume) and they did a solid job of what was asked of them and I dont have any gripes with the way the issue looked. The big scary Brainiac thing in the sky looked just as scary in this issue as it did drawn by the other art teams in the other books in these tie-ins. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - F.D. White Aug 20, 2014

    This issue is a prime example of a bad tie-in. It doesn't really do anything at all to advance the Doomed story, or it's own characters. Read Full Review

    Supergirl 34 was pretty forgettable. It was a fun little read but I think that you might want to save your money and pick up the next one. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 21, 2014

    Supergirl #34 is a poor excuse for a Supergirl and Doomed issue.  Fans of either can just skip this one and look forward to Futures End next month.  Hopefully that will be better than this awful cash grab of an issue. Read Full Review

    This is the comic book equivalent to catching up on a story via Wikipedia. Read Full Review
