    Michael Green and Mike Johnson continue to make me want more out of this series. Mahmud Asrar continues to deliver some amazing artwork, and definitely has a unique vision for Supergirl. I hope this team stays on the book for the long run.. Read Full Review

    Imagine the destruction she might have wrought were she trying? All she really had to do to stop Tycho's men was to punch a hole in the satellite with her pinky. Then, all the air would have rapidly evacuated, leaving behind cold corpses. Instead, Kara breaks her captors in ways they probably never experienced before. Painful, but she does not kill them. I'm sure some died in the climax, but Supergirl did not coldly murder her opponents. Her attack is devastating, but it could have been so much worse. That's Supergirl in a nutshell. Read Full Review

    As I said, Mahmud Asrar is just stellar here. And it looks like the 'origin' piece is moving forward. Read Full Review

    I love this series. In fact, I love all the Super-Family books, except for SUPERMAN, obviously. This book stands out on his own, and for those looking for a strong female character that isn't all about T&A and flaunting sexuality, you should check out this book. I love the lack of trust Supergirl has in everything around her and she isn't just friendly with everyone, which I felt like she was in the last volume. I hope this lack of trust continues to play out in this series. I loved Michael Green's writing and his writing style. He brings new ideas to classic elements in comics, and this is a great example of that. On the other side of things, I really did not like the new villain introduced into this series. I feel that type of villain is a bit tired. Obviously, I highly recommend this issue and this series. You won't regret it. Read Full Review

    A lot of action that leaves plenty for our star to do in the next issues, as well as seeds sown for bigger plotlines down the pike. Read Full Review

    Strangely enough, I'm interested in seeing what developments are in store for Kara, especially the "Return to Argo" promised "Next Issue." Maybe she's going to get to the bottom of what happened to her, i.e. how she ended up on Earth. This probably won't be the case, as dragging out and screwing with Kara's origin and parents is par for the course with the character since she was reintroduced a few years ago. Either way, it won't be nearly as interesting as her central story and role in New Krypton was"and that story doesn't even matter anymore since it "didn't happen." Read Full Review

    "Supergirl" as a series feels like it's summed up in this issue in terms of quality. It's all right, but it needs a bit more spring to its step. I feel like Green, Johnson, and Asrar have all the pieces in front of them for a really good series, but so far they aren't coming together quite fast enough. Hopefully introductions are almost over and we can start heading forward at full speed soon. Read Full Review
