    A solid book, but the writing does bring down the overall rating a bit. After the Worldkillers storyline, and even the promise of last month's issue as Supergirl has finally found a friend on this strange planet, this title can use a slightly better scripting effort next month. (However, Mahmud and Dave, keep up the solid work!) Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj May 18, 2012

    It still begs the question 'Where is Superman?' Even if being a family member and another Kryptonian wasn't enough to have him track her down, now she is hurting people and causing infernos. It is time for the super-cousins to meet again. Meet again and talk ... not exchange punches! But that is thinking about the future. I should stay in the now. And the now is that this was a very good issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - George Marston May 16, 2012

    In past years, Supergirl has struggled off and on to hold an audience, and to differentiate it's titular character from her namesake enough to stand alone, while still keeping the sense of wonder and strength that has made Superman the most enduring and inspirational character of all time. While it's hard to say that Green, Johnson, and Asrar's Supergirl is the definitive take on a character with a storied a history as Kara Zor-El, the team has made great strides toward building the character a niche and corner of the DCU all her own. It's not quite solid gold just yet, but Supergirl is a great example of the reboot done right. Read Full Review

    I would love to see George Prez return for a fill-in story or issue in the near future, but I am really enjoying the artwork that Mahmud Asrar brings to Green and Johnson's Supergirl stories. This series has been a treat to this point, and this issue is no different with the creative team (and guest artist) all submitting stunning, memorable work. Read Full Review

    The issue does look great though. Mahmud Asrar does a stellar job with the action and this is a book that has plenty of it. There is a raw intensity to his panels, giving the action a frantic, violent feel. His characters are great, especially his Black Banshee who looks sinister as hell. Asrar has been fantastic this entire series, and it's awesome to see him back and kicking butt. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gilbert Short May 18, 2012

    While this book isn't perfect, it still one of the most consistent Superbooks on the market. At least it will be until I see if my hopes and dreams for “Superman Family Adventures” comes true. Check it out if you like Supers and Irish folklore. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen May 22, 2012

    A decent and functional approach to writing the Maiden of Steel, but that is not enough to guarantee longevity for any title in this crowded market. Time is running out before Supergirl joins its many siblings in the Dropped List. Read Full Review
