    This series has had excellent writing the whole time. Orlando never disappoints. My main complaint about this series has been the art. I did not have that complaint this issue, so I give it top marks. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Aug 11, 2017

    Even the 'too much power' plot, which we have seen elsewhere, is an interesting little kernel to this story. Maybe Kara will have to have the Parasite leech off some power as a cure? Anyhow, this issue was a complete winner. I am thrilled! Read Full Review

    There is one very interesting revelation, that the Emerald Empress herself is being manipulated, having come back in time to kill Saturn Girl, but discovering that the visions she was given were a lie. Is this all tied to Rebirth? Id certainly put money on that. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Sheena Fisher Aug 9, 2017

    Its interesting to see Kara somewhat out of control of her own powers. Its almost as if shes living on the cusp of a paradox with all of the sudden changes she is seeing. Our future baddies are trying their best to tear her down from the inside. Its truly a scary thought. This issue is setting us up for some crazy future events. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Aug 9, 2017

    If this is the new baseline for Supergirl, consider the series revived. Looking forward to seeing where this goes, and if it can prove better than anyplace this series has been. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Danny Saab Aug 10, 2017

    Despite a few negative points in this issue, it was one of the best Supergirl books since the start of Rebirth. It could possibly be because of the incredible artwork, or the down to earth writing of Orlando, but all in all, a really good issue, and a lot of fun to read. For the first time in a long time, I'm looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Noah O'Toole Aug 9, 2017

    This issue was leaps and bounds better than the last storyline, due in part to coinciding with the events of Justice League Verses Suicide Squad crossover. The Fatal Five present the challenge Supergirl needs, and the book assures you the stakes are as real as they feel. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Aug 15, 2017

    One of the best issues of Supergirl post-Rebirth despite its flaws, setting the ground for a very promising arc to come if it can keep the element of unpredictability that it needs going forward. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tara Giovannini Aug 10, 2017

    It's not that this series is bad, but like so many other Steve Orlando books, I feel it has the potential to be great and just doesn't reach it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 9, 2017

    This issue opens up the Girl of No Tomorrow arc and it's not good.  In fact, it's a convoluted mess.  Robson Rocha's art is really good, but there is nothing else here to recommend. Read Full Review
