    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Feb 16, 2018

    I know when a book has succeeded when I want the read the next issue immediately after finishing the current one. I want Supergirl #19 in my hands now. Everything about this book, from the origin of the villain to the end of that battle to the teenage romance on the beach to the cliffhanger all worked for me, all beautifully depicted.

    A fantastic issue, with great artwork, and a cringing cliff-hanger. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Feb 16, 2018

    I recently read Steve Orlando discussing this book, and why he is proud of it. It was a good piece, and made me want to like the book more than I have been. This issue made that goal much easier to achieve. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Amit Malaviya Feb 18, 2018

    One of the best things that this volume of Supergirl has going for it is that its exploring Kara Zor-El both in her civilian identity as Kara Danvers and in her superheroic identity as Supergirl, and its delving into her own insecurities as both, and allowing her some growing pains as she settles into life on Earth with a new identity and family. Previous versions of the character never quite did the same, and its a smart move on Orlando and Housers part. Its clear that they have long-term plans for where they want to take Supergirl, and thats refreshing to see during a time where creators arent really staying on books for that long. If youre looking for a solid, classic, coming-of-age superhero book thats doing some great character work, this is definitely a book you should check out. Its well worth it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 14, 2018

    When this issue isn't force feeding us the idea that Supergirl is an inspiration (we know it already, btw), it is pretty good.  I was worried what a mostly Kara Danvers issue would be like, but if this is an example, sign me up for more!  The art is really good as well and it all equals one of my favorite issues of the series.

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Feb 28, 2018

    Overall, a lot to be desired, but on par with what we've come to expect from Supergirl at this stage of her adventures. Until things heat up and give us high-risk confrontations, we'll be impatiently waiting. Read Full Review

    It's not the most earth-shattering conclusion to "Plain Sight", but one just intriguing enough to make readers wonder what's next for the Girl of Steel. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Feb 20, 2018

    This issue finds Supergirl against an antagonist that she can relate to personally and she finds time to be sympathetic to the character as the story develops. She can't hate her attacker even though it might be easy to do so. I thoroughly enjoyed how this issue unfolded and I hope to see more of this character as I don't think their relationship developed as fully as it should have. And just when you think everything was going to wrap up nice and neat along comes… to be continued! (*** 7.6 rating) Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 21, 2018

    The epilogue offers a nice moment of respite for our heroine who actually gets to be a young woman instead of a savior for at least part of one night as a girl enjoying her first dance. For fans. Read Full Review
