    I feel since the end of the Cyborg Superman story, and maybe even since the end of the Emerald Empress arc, this book has been building momentum. Read Full Review

    I've been invested in this character for a long time, and this is the first time since the early parts of Sterling Gates' run that I've felt her title was hitting on all cylinders. Read Full Review

    A great story all around. Tons of action, heart, beautiful art, and progressed the story very well in this arc. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Jan 10, 2018

    Overall, Supergirl #17 reiterates much of what we've seen and what we know: Kara is torn between two lives, trying to find balance, and the D.E.O. will continue to test the boundaries of her ability to live that bifurcated life. It's time for the conflict to escalate in its natural direction, made obvious by now, to put us back on edge with how the D.E.O. can push Kara to a decision. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Christina Williams Jan 12, 2018

    Kara Danvers is once more faced with the impossible choice between being Supergirl or Kara. We see her internal conflict among literal conflict throughout the issue. Where will the DEO's fight against her lead? Just why do they want Supergirl so badly? Who is Director Bones? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jan 21, 2018

    I also sort of cringed at the next issue blurb, which announces a villain called the Evolutionist. I know this is an American comic, but are we really going to descend into Creationist nonsense now? Pandering to Trump sucking Christians may be good for the market in the Bible thumping areas, but its repulsive to anyone with a brain. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 10, 2018

    This book has turned into the villain of the month club and the cliffhanger, while cool enough, doesn't make me think things will change anytime soon.  Steve Orlando and Jody Houser are giving us a book where Kara is finding it harder and harder to find time to be both herself and Supergirl, but I need a better overall story to make me care.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 16, 2018

    The choice to make Catco more like the classic Daily Bugle to Spider-Man also over-complicates things here adding yet another storyline to a fairly unfocused comic. Kara is great, but I think the world around her could use some work. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review
