Supergirl-the infected! Brainiac-1 attempts to contact Supergirl at the Fortress of Solitude, but for what nefarious purpose? No matter what he has planned, things are about to go from bad to worse as Supergirl heads on a collision course with the Batman Who Laughs! He's targeted Superman as part of his plan to infect heroes and transform them into their twisted Dark Multiverse counterparts-but Supergirl gets caught in the crossfire, and the Year of the Villain stakes get even higher!

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Nov 20, 2019

    I'm curious to see where this leads while hoping it doesn't drag on for too long. This is sure to propel her into a new direction that will certainly have repercussions for her down the road. I had no interest in the Infected story arc before. This issue piqued my interest in it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Adam Ray Nov 17, 2019

    I have to admit that I'm not consistently picking up this title again and again for it's revolutions to literature. I come back because high octane action is so satisfying. Supergirl #36 is one of the title's strongest for its stellar visuals and wild, exciting possibilities. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Nov 27, 2019

    I've enjoyed the writing on the Supergirl comic. The dialogue has been engaging, and her search for the destroyers of Krypton was enjoyable. She's really good in outer space, seems like. She might want to go back there more. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Nov 27, 2019

    This issue of Supergirl wasnt exactly nothing, but it relied on the actions of other books to push it along. Im glad that shes been given something to do, even if that is being evil. It had quite a few great moments and the art team was fantastic throughout, but its difficult to say that this was really Supergirls story when it seemed like she was a bit player in the much larger narrative. It will be interesting to see what she does while Infected, especially since the next issue indicates a fight between her and the Worlds Finest. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 20, 2019

    Pansica's art is fantastic. It's the saving grace of this issue. All of the characters look amazing and the action is filled with energy. I love how this issue looks, but I wish the story was more focused. Read Full Review

    Marc Andreyko's Supergirl run ends this week with Supergirl #36 and he goes out on a solid note. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 20, 2019

    So Supergirl #36 is mostly setting up Kara's arrival at the fortress, then repeating the events from Batman/Superman, and then showing us some immediate aftermath. Based on that, there's only so much he can do with the story but it's overall effective at filling in the blanks. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Nov 20, 2019

    This comic really isn't bad by any means, and in some ways it's even better than the core Infected issues or some of the tie-ins that I've written about up until now. However, it still doesn't add a whole lot to the main narrative in Batman/Superman as it mostly repeats what happened in that title, and there is a small inconsistency with how the same event is depicted.

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner Nov 25, 2019

    Despite the artwork and colors lifting up the story, "Supergirl" suffers from extreme logical inconsistencies toward the story it is attempting to tie into, breaking immersion in the process. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Nov 22, 2019

    The creative team is very good. And I understand that crossovers are a part of this business. But Kara always seems like second fiddle whenever a crossover happens. It has just gotten a bit tiresome and felt abrupt this time around. Especially when the first few pages were really decent and their own cool story. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 22, 2019

    Supergirl has been thrown around quite a lot by crossover events this Year. This Year of the Villain thing hits her particularly hard, so its easy to see why she would do what she does at the issues end. Other than that one dark final moment, this issue is an awkward, silly narrative shuffle.  Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Nov 20, 2019

    With such a strong tie to the Year of the Villain crossover event, this issue will only appeal to those invested in the DC Universe. The larger Event story belittles the ongoing Supergirl narrative that readers have been following for the last few months. A disappointment in a number of ways. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 22, 2019

    So here we are, in the repeat part of the wash-rinse-repeat cycle of evil Supergirl over the last decade. Maybe, just maybe, new writer Jody Houser will be able to write an ongoing book about a heroic Supergirl. As for Andreyko, I don't think his run will stand the test of time. Mired by side plots and making Kara almost kill yet again? Nah. It ain't Gate/Igle. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Nov 20, 2019

    Supergirl is once again dragged into another crossover event instead of establishing it's own identity. I am struggling to find reasons why anyone would keep putting their time and money into this series. At this point, it has become a companion series to whatever is happening in the universe. That doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon. At least we got some fantastic art. Read Full Review

    Well, that was quick. Not awful, I just don’t care about the story arc this poor book’s been dragged into.

    Once again Supergirl is a retelling of another book. Good for those only reading Supergirl, but for everyone else... you are wasting our time. Especially since although the art here is good, Batman/Superman's art is practically flawless.

    I feel bad for Marc Andreyko. It seems he's at the mercy of every single event. And it does put a damper on things. But this issue wasn't too bad, it was just brief and really takes the wind out of my sails as I realize just how pointless this entire Year of the Villain arc was.

    One thing I hate about big crossover events, is how they affect ongoing stories, how they temporarily derail plotlines that now how to be either paused and delayed til the event's resolution, or sshoehorned to fit whatever's happening now in the event.
    I stopped following Supergirl's comics a while ago, due to limited spare time and not as much interest as I once had for it, when Andreyko took over the series. Thus, as you can figure out, I didn't have a clue what's up with the first half of this issue. Yeah, cool, it explains The Secret ix concept to Supergirl's readers who may be unfamiliar with it, but it does not do the same job for those who follow Batman/Superman, and may be unfamiliar with Supergirl's current state of affairs. < more
