    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff May 8, 2019

    This issue is basically just one long fight scene which normally, while exciting, doesn't usually add very much to a story. Well, that is not the case with this issue. Among the exciting fight scenes, we also get really well-done storytelling by Andreyko. I'm honestly very impressed by it. Add that with this art team and you have one hell of an issue. There is one part that is a bit disappointing but that is a reflection on the comic industry and not a fault of this book at all. Read Full Review

    Things are bound to change once the storyline ends, but I suspect this period of the book will remain a highlight of the run for many years to come. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 8, 2019

    Andreyko finally delivers an end to the multi-part story that has a perfect sense of drama, action, and pacing. The only thing that keeps it from being nearly as good as it SHOULD have been is the fact that Andreyko seems to have been rushed to get to this point in the story. There was real potential in a quest like this rolling through a couple of years. As it is, the resolution here feels rather abrupt when taken in the context of a story which really SHOULD have been longer. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz May 8, 2019

    The ending has a pair of guest stars that I'll be interested to see in this book. It could get very interesting. Hopefully the next issue keeps up the quality of this issue. I'm sure it's possible. You know, as long as it's Kevin Maguire doing the art on it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Adam Ray May 10, 2019

    VerdictMy personal gripes aside, this issue had depth. With her allegiances all over the place, the title has been sent in a new direction. Her crusade to find the truth isn't over and much can still happen. I'd pick this up to see the cosmic possibilities over anything else. Read Full Review

    "Supergirl" #30 addresses a huge character flaw for Kara with a fascinating plot beat. Read Full Review

    We've largely only seen Gandela as a shadowy background villain until now, but this issue makes clear she's one of the most powerful villains in the universe " her body can shapeshift into massive crystal forms and she can rebuild from being shattered. The battle between her and Supergirl is one of the most impressive scenes in the series " I just wish the plot backed it up better. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 8, 2019

    The art by Kevin Maguire as really good, but the visuals had a tone that seemed lighter than the tone of the story called for. Read Full Review

    If you like issues that are pretty much just one long fight scene, Supergirl #30 is for you, but if you're looking for something with a little more substance you're not going to find it here. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj May 10, 2019

    I am both happy that this is behind us. Disappointed that we needed these shortcuts to get there. And actuall underwhelmed with the story itself. Seriously, a Kara liking the rage she is feeling as she plans to split someone's head with an axe? That's not a Supergirl I want to read. At least the art is glittering. Read Full Review
