Supergirl... super-captured! Still recovering from radiation poisoning, Kara finds herself in the clutches of the Citadel and its ruthless leader Harry Hokum, who is eager to experiment on one of the last Kryptonians in the known universe. How is Kara supposed to track down answers to her Rogol Zaar/Krypton mystery in the midst of a Vega System civil war? And you don't throw a civil war in the Vega System without the Omega Men returning-even some long-lost ones!

    You can't have a piece of media to everyone's taste. As it comes, this one is a lot of fun. A space age romp that you would be hard to find anything akin to in today's comics landscape. It may be an odd tone, but one that's fun and welcome. Read Full Review

    So I am much happier reading an entertaining space romp that brings back some classic characters, ones with a lot of unused potential. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jan 21, 2019

    The end is as crazy as the beginning! This leads us to a mighty cliffhanger that is very strong. Andreyko and Maguire have done another wonderful issue here. Having Maguire back on the art duties is a dream come true. I'm just enjoying every second of this. Read Full Review

    Kevin Maguires art is really good. There are some fun panels with great action as well as well detailed facial expressions. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 16, 2019

    The spacefaring super heroine is looking good in her 26th issue. Andreyko may be keeping the pulpy space fantasy milieu rolling for now. The tour of the cosmic end of the DC Universe continues to show promise. Supergirl has been paired with interesting allies and contrasted against equally interesting enemies. If DC can pair Andreyko with a steady artist who can accomplish the dynamic balance of Maguire and shell continue to be appealing for a long, long time. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Robert Zadotti Jan 16, 2019

    Overall, this is a great issue with plenty of promising set-up for the storyline ahead. However, hopefully subsequent issues will have more action from the titular Kryptonian and less of her imprisoned. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Jan 16, 2019

    Concerns about the number of inkers and colorists notwithstanding, this book is a decent quality read and with cancellation of Green Lanterns, I think this has probably been one of the most consistently fun reads that DC have published over the last few months. Read Full Review

    Overall, Kara's journey through space continues to be a winning plot for this series. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Amy Ziegfeld Jan 16, 2019

    Supergirl #26 is a fun and endearing comic that, aside from my idiosyncratic issues with continuity, is a delight from start to finish. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Amit Malaviya Jan 23, 2019

    This issue takes a little bit of a detour from the crux of Kara's mission, but you still get some beautiful art and some well-written Supergirl, which is well worth a read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Jan 16, 2019

    Supergirl continues to move as far from the main plot as possible but its hard to criticize when the issue is just so much fun. Think of those old sci-fi adventure films you used to watch as a kid. This issue feels exactly like that. I had so much fun reading this issue that I can't really be as harsh as usual on it. I'm a simple man. If something is fun, I'm going to be a little more lenient on it. That's just the way it is. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jan 16, 2019

    I had some fun with this, mostly because of Kevin Maguire's greatness. The hefty inking and colouring team all do a beautiful job but the art looks inconsistent at times. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Nicole Drum Jan 16, 2019

    Supergirl #26 takes a sharp left turn from where the story's appeared to be going the past several issues, and while it's not without interest, it suffers under the combined weight of feeling a lot like Brainiac and his bottle cities and the overdone trope of evil clone plans. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jan 18, 2019

    This feels like we are approaching that part of the direction where it doesn't feel like it is working. Unforunately, we are probably looking at a while before editorial pulls the plug and sends her back to Earth. Maybe I am being too harsh? What did you guys think? Read Full Review

    I really want to enjoy this comic, but I’m becoming less and less invested as we drift further and further from what I was excited about (Supergirl: Space Detective).

    This issue wasn't as good as previous ones. I think the pacing issues are starting to catch up with this series. Not enough happens and what does doesn't allow the characters to shine.

    I loved Andreyko's take on the character so far, but this issue is the weakest we've seen so far. I appreciate the anti war message, and commentary on human rights violation (which is a rising problem in real world), but they should never overshadow the story itself - and I have a feeling that's exactly what happened here. It may not be as bad as Marvel's constant flirtations with regressive identity politics, but yeah, it's definitely not subtle enough to remain on the second plan, as I'd expect it to.

    Speaking of the story, it's a bit dull and I've found myself not really enjoying reading it as much as I did previous issues, albeit I have to say, I definitely look forward to see what's going to happen to Kara's clone. I mean, i more

    Dialogue is ok and so is the art but the pacing is the weak point of this comic series! Not much is even happening to keep me fully entertained. Hopefully next issue with the Omega Men team up, it will be more entertaining.
