    Steve Orlandos dialogue is crisp and effective, and Brian Ching keeps the visuals fascinating. Its amazing how much emotion can play on a cyborgs face. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Dec 14, 2016

    Overall, Supergirl isn't groundbreaking, but it hasn't set out to be. Instead, it's exploring an old character in a way that nods to an origin story without falling into its most common pitfalls of overfamiliar entry plots. This is likely the best issue to date, and the arc already running full speed as it comes closer to its climax. It should be fun, and then we should be due for a pace breather, but not a second too soon. Read Full Review

    So I thought this was a very good issue for the title. Supergirl finally seems to realize that she can't go home again. Earth is her new home, the Danvers her new parents. And having her say goodbye to Alura again brings in some finality, some closure she didn't get before. If only the art was consistent throughout. Read Full Review

    The story could have sped up and the art be more consistent. I'll continue to read this book because I love the character, but I've got to see some improvement to continue buying it. Read Full Review

    In conclusion even though I was lukewarm about this book at first, I do think the book itself has really improved and I am interested to see how Orlando will use Kara to defeat the Argo robots. Read Full Review

    This issue is not filler, but not a lot happens to push the story forward and what we get is kind of boring.  Actually, it's also cliched and forced and that is not a good recipe for fun.  While I like the art enough, I just can't make myself care about what's going on here.  I love Supergirl and hope it improves, but I can't recommend what we are getting now.

    Argo City and National City are now openly in conflict. Kara is trapped, unable to intervene between the women who both claim to be her mother, neither of whom quite qualifies and each of whom can only survive by stealing the spark of life that animates the other. When forced to make a choice, is Supergirl Earths Woman of Steel or is she the Last Daughter of Krypton? Read Full Review

    Overall, I don't like this issue. The art is a mixed bag; some of it works well but other aspects of it are incredibly distracting in a bad way. Steve Orlando's characterization of Kara is still great and I love her side of the plot but the invasion plot falls flat for me. I don't recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review
