    That's a wrap folks. My guess is that if the title wasn't ending this week the DEO storyline would have taken a bit longer to wrap up. Given the time/page constraint, I think Orlando and Houser did a very good job. But most importantly we get this coda. Kara is in a very good place and that makes me happy. Hopefully DC builds on this when they send her on her 'new mission'. Read Full Review

    Orlando and Houser's Supergirl has been very good, but their Kara Danvers has been fantastic. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 12, 2018

    Supergirl #20 brings the series, sadly, to a conclusion. However, the finale is full of life, energy, and optimism. While the story is a bit bloated and unwieldy, the charm of Kara and the excitement of her battle with both Bones and Goldenaxe manages to shine through and make the comic very readable. As such, it still earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Theres Lar-On a gigantic panting red werewolf hanging out and a dude that looks like a cross between Dr. Strange and Nightwing named Neon (horrible name) shooting out a bunch of red blue and green swirls out of a delicious looking staff-love it all. Read Full Review

    While a solid issue of Supergirl, this installment falters greatly as the final issue of a series which, up until this point, had been a gem. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Apr 13, 2018

    Overall, it's hard to accept this is the end of this series. This run has done better, and deserves better than to end where it has: Supergirl could have been a lot better with more cohesion, a less episodic structure, fewer cameos, and a clearer goal. The ride is over though, so we'll remember the best parts from the Girl of Steel that we've enjoyed from the past twenty issues. Only few of those memories will come from this finale.

    I had a tough time getting through this issue. It's not bad but it is boring. The fight between Supergirl and Turid takes up the majority of the issue and it's deeply uninteresting. It certainly looks nice; the art is great. But there is no tension and the issue feels hollow. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 11, 2018

    Steve Orlando uses his final issue of Supergirl to push his upcoming New Age of Heroes book and while that's The Unexpected, this is just unforgivable.  While the issue looks great, I have never been madder at an issue of a comic in a long time, maybe never.  I haven't been the biggest fan of Steve Orlando, but I am now done with him completely!

    Supergirl #20 is the end of the run for the title, and given that it is a finale issue, one would expect the story to be about the Girl of Steel herself. However, that is far from the case. Read Full Review

    This issue is just typical of Orlando. It's mediocre. Which would usually warrant a 5. But this series ends with a push for his New Age of Heroes title. And that's just very scummy to me. I was no fan of this series, but I still found that offensive on a level the rest of the run probably didn't ever reach. I guess Orlando really wanted to end it with a bang.

    A finale that certainly feels like one, but with how poor the run was overall (with exceptions briefly issue 13 and on) it isn't really possible to end in any meaningful way and kind of just ends on a dull point.

    The viking lady was kind of cool though, it was a nice tease for a book still so far off.
