    Word Of The Nerd - Hollie Cumberland Feb 20, 2015

    The Kara that has developed over these past few issues is mature and level headed, something Supergirl needed to develop, and I'm really hoping the friends she's made throughout will stick with her for a time. It's Perkins and Johnson that have allowed for this to happen, and I applaud them for that. It's a well out together issue, and sets the scene perfectly for what's sure to be an action packed issue next month. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 19, 2015

    This penultimate issue of Supergirl was really good and only made me mad that it's all ending next month.  I wish we could get more because it is worthy of a longer arc, but to their credit, Perkins and Johnson are ending it in style.  Lupacchino's art is stellar as usual and I can't wait to see how it all ends next month.

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Feb 20, 2015

    I was going to write a long list of things that I think would have been introduced into the book if it was going on but I said from the beginning that I would not lament the passing of the book. I come to praise this issue. (Lamentations might be coming next review.) Suffice it to say, I have enjoyed this Perkins/Johnson/Lupacchino/McCarthy/Hi-Fi run. It has been bright, fun, action-packed and filled with great characterization. We have a heroic passionate Kara. It has given us a supporting cast. What more could Supergirl fans want?

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Feb 18, 2015

    Supergirl #39 looks like it's reaching that climax to this story surrounding the Crucible Academy. How it ends and where things could possibly go from here is up in the air, but this is a side to Kara that we needed to see. A lot more humanizing, and something that feels more genuine considering all the craziness of her past. For once you don't feel like it has to be all about the fighting which works for a character like Kara. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Feb 18, 2015

    What results is a story that once again seems to have some potential, after this series non-ending sequence of roller coaster story arcs. It would seem as though the character and the series are finally getting on track, but equally, it has been in the same place before. At the very least, this issue shows what this creative team is capable of, only now it is up to them to maintain it into something more noteworthy and solid. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Michael Bettendorf Feb 24, 2015

    At surface level the issue is much to do with usual Loki business, but at the heart it shows much more of the emotional side of our often misunderstood trickster. Seeing Loki from his perspective is what makes this title so strong. It adds layers upon layers of character development and understanding often not seen in titles that focus on his older brother. While the comic can be tough to keep straight sometimes, its well worth the time and energy to see why Loki is who he is. Read Full Review
