Supergirl and the Omega Men versus...Supergirls?! The Omega Men's secret base of operations is attacked by the Citadel, who brought with them an entire army of Supergirls who all don't seem to be built quite right. With Supergirl fighting multiple versions of herself, it proves the old saying  "You are your own worst enemy."

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Mar 13, 2019

    This issue brought forth all of the joys of the classic comic book. A huge battle. Kooky villains. A hero being tested. And all of it served the overall plot of getting Supergirl closer to a face-to-face confrontation with the elusive Circle, and finding out just why they handed Krypton a death certificate. Supergirl has fast become my favorite superheroine, and cosmic-level book to read. Well worth it, month after month. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Adam Ray Mar 30, 2019

    VerdictThis is the intense action issue everyone needs between story lines. The grand picture of what's going on in Krypton's past. The name and mission of Rogol Zar still holds quite a bit of weight across the galaxies. We can expect the issues going forward to really test Kara and her growing struggle to control her intense anger. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Apr 4, 2019

    It makes me kind of hope they dont just send her back to Earth at the end of this. There seems to be a lot more potential to the character the further she gets from Superman. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Mar 14, 2019

    One of the things that I like about this book is that is doesn't take itself seriously in any shape way or form. You could consider this whole story-line being event-driven. Yet Supergirl is dealing with ramifications of a personal event, rather than the more universal threat featured in a range of books from the many Justice League books to Titans. By making this distinction, Andreyko gets to focus on Kara's actual character which is refreshing in the current DC publishing model. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Chris Egan Mar 18, 2019

    An exciting monster-mash with all the expected super-heroics of Kara Zor-El. A crucial finale and jumping off point for regular readers, but newcomers will be lost. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 11, 2019

    Theres a lot of potential in a story that pits Supergirl against monstrous mutation of herself. And while Andreyko and company find exciting ways of delivering the horror of that action to the page, the overall execution lacks the inventiveness that could have accompanied an issue like this. That being said, the inner conflict that Kara feels rests entirely at the center of a story continues to come across convincingly. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Mar 13, 2019

    Andreyko brings this small arc to a wonderful conclusion filled with action and intrigue. He drops hints at what is to come in the future and I for one cannot wait. We even got actual progression in the main story. This book is consistently one of the most entertaining on DC's entire lineup and I can't see that changing any time soon. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 13, 2019

    Marc Andreyko's Supergirl run sending her on a quest for justice through space has been a compelling read, but over the last few issues it's taken on a mean streak that has severely blunted my enjoyment. Unfortunately, it doubles down on that tone this issue with an often grotesque plot that pushes Supergirl and the Omega Men to their limits. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Mar 15, 2019

    And it's just fine. It's not terribly great nor terribly bad. Again, the art of Pansica helps. But beyond the rescue, storywise, we are at the same place Andreyko began the issue at. Hopefully that changes next issue, but it was a glaring problem for me as a reader. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Mar 15, 2019

    Eddie Pansica is great on art, bringing an appropriate grime to the battlefield art. Hopefully this Omega Men side adventure is over and we get back on the true path of this storyline. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Nicole Drum Mar 13, 2019

    It feels an awful lot like what we've seen from most of the previous issues: Kara gets information, Kara has to fight some impossible fight, Kara comes out on top, but is a little sadder for it because of what she learns. It makes for a fairly average, almost-boring issue. Read Full Review
