    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Apr 10, 2019

    However, my sole gripe with this issue is that Z'ndr is a teenager. I'm not sure why it bothered me, maybe I wanted Supergirl to have a mentor more than a fellow teen pal, but it rubbed the wrong way. Either way, Supergirl #29 was paced well, artistically beautiful and I eagerly await next month when the confrontation with Empress Gandelo goes down. A great job as usual. So glad the Zaar storyline got this series renewed because Supergirl is a great character. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Adam Ray Apr 11, 2019

    This issue is the most calm before a storm I've seen in a while. The jungle was lush and green, and our heroes were having a pool party. By that logic, issue 30 will be down-right apocalyptic, and that's going to be a spectacle to right home about indeed. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Apr 10, 2019

    The art by Eduardo Pansica is really great. All of characters look amazing and there are some awesome panels throughout especially the depictions of Rogol Zaar. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton May 11, 2019

    Andreyko has made his run a vital part of the larger picture, while at the same time developing Supergirl herself more effectively than many writers have. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 10, 2019

    This series has good characterization of its main players, but the narrative and villains still need some work. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Nicole Drum Apr 10, 2019

    Supergirl #29 finally gives Kara and readers the answers they've been seeking, but other than the identity of a few major players, it's an answer we already kind of had. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Apr 10, 2019

    While this issue remains good, it's a bit of a down issue for the series. It seems that after this issue, the writer wanted the book to be in a certain place to wrap up this storyline. Unfortunately, going about it at a normal pace was apparently out of the question. It's a bit frustrating to be so invested in a series and then have it rush to get to the end all of a sudden, but the book is still good, the characters are still interesting, and I'm still looking forward to the next issue.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 10, 2019

    A muddled delivery of the rather sudden end to a grand quest is further muted by a substantial amount of exposition. With any luck, Andreyko and company are adjusting for a new direction with one of DCs most iconic superheroes. This issue, however, lacks the kind of impact it really needed to have to live up to its potential. Read Full Review
