It's Supergirl versus the Worldkillers! But who are they, and where did they come from? What is their connection to Krypton? More important, can the Girl of Steel stop them before they make good on their names and destroy Earth?

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Mar 24, 2012

    The title 'Graduation Day' makes me think that Kara will view this battle as the 'trial' she was supposed to go through on Krypton, that she feels she has earned her uniform now. So we have learned more about Argo and Krypton. We have a lot of puzzle pieces that need to merge into a coherent history. And we have a Supergirl risking her life to aid others. Not one 'Hell on Wheels', disaffected panel here! And that makes me a happy fan. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 22, 2012

    When DC relaunched their comics in September, they set up the schedule for specific titles to be released on certain weeks. For example, every third week of the month, DC publishes some of the best comics on its slate: "Batman," "Wonder Woman" and "Supergirl." That's some pretty stiff competition "Supergirl" faces from her own company each and every month. However, this comic delivers right alongside those others and this issue is a perfect example of why. It's the conclusion to a story that's been going on for a few issues, but everything you need to know about the character and her predicament is right here. You owe it to yourself to check out this great book releasing every third week of the month. Read Full Review

    The Comic Book Revue - Jay Mattson Mar 22, 2012

    Unfortunately, there's not much in the way of a conclusion, with Green and Johnson instead opting to give those last few pages to Reign's "I will be back" speech. If the writing and artwork stay as consistent as they have through this point, Supergirl might just become one of the 'must read' books from the 'New 52.' Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Mar 26, 2012

    Supergirl is a book I look forward to reading every month. Strongly written and beautifully depicted, this is a comic that redefines Supergirl for a new generation. I'm sold on the new Kara Zor-El, and I'm sold on Mike Johnson and Mike Green. And I look forward to seeing what they have in store for Supergirl. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joey Esposito Mar 21, 2012

    In the end, it's Asrar's work that really sells the issue. Watching Kara truly let loose with her powers is a sight to behold; the heat blast that she unleashes on Perrilus is gorgeously rendered, heightened by the colors of Dave McCaig. In addition, Asrar gets to shine in other similar scenes that showcase Supergirl in action. For instance, a two-panel page that shows her getting blasted through multiple buildings and landing (hard) in the streets below is simple but gorgeous. The composition is stellar and the positioning of Kara's body allows the reader to feel the impact of the blow. Hopefully the narrative can begin to work its way back toward what made it so strong in the early issues; coupled with Asrar's level of work in this issue, there's no doubt in my mind that Supergirl has the potential to be one of the strongest books at DC.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Mar 27, 2012

    A rather bland way to finish up this new Supergirl's second arc, but at least it leaves her free to pursue whatever future she wishes from here on out. Read Full Review

    After a slew of really good issues, this one was definitely a bit of a misfire, but that's okay, as long as Michael Green and Mike Johnson right the ship(which I'm confident they will) next issue. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - T. A. Ewart Mar 28, 2012

    It took seven, 7, SEVEN, issues to get to this point, and that is just unacceptable. We've seen Supergirl interact with Reign more than she did with Superman (who, by the way, we still don't know why he had to rush off from her). We've been given major villains out of nowhere (OK, from Krypton) and no cohesive direction for the character. She saved NYC, some would say. To that the response would be, “so what.” What is she going to do now? On this earth, there is no true purpose for Supergirl and after seven issues, nothing has been done to address that. It appears that you should never let structure get in the way of not only a good story, but also a bad one. Read Full Review
