Suffering from a series of hallucinations and memories of her past, Kara struggles to keep her mind clear enough to save the people she swore to her cousin she'd protect.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 6, 2020

    There may not be a lot going on in this issue, but Houser and Stott do an admirable job of sketching out a moment in Karas psyche. Its a moody lead-in to what will likely be a much more substantial story next issue with the meeting thats set-up at issues end. The rhythm of the story could have led to that meeting in a much more compelling way if the pacing had just a bit more punch. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj May 29, 2020

    I have talked a lot recently about the ever erroneous decision to darken Supergirl by DC. It inevitably leads to a cancellation and unhappy Supergirl fans. And this volume is no different. From Marc Andreyko's axe-wielding space explorer to the tainted viral infected Goth villain, Supergirl fans have suffered for the last 2 years. To have the title end digital only adds to the somberness of this. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff May 26, 2020

    Supergirl finally starts it's own story after being dragged into another crossover, but unfortunately that story is full of ridiculous reasoning and dumb decisions by characters as well as unappealing art and unrecognizable facial expressions. I really hope things change soon but after reading this issue, it's hard for me to say that this book wouldn't be better off just being cancelled. Read Full Review

    This was a kind of messy and frustrating read. Everything felt like it came out of nowhere, I dunno, I didn’t enjoy it.

    With two issues left and so many threads unresolved it would have been impossible to deliver a worthy ending. But with this plethora of options, they chose to dig in to the one plot that we hoped would never be mentioned again.

    A Supergirl book at its best is one where she lights up the dark, a shining beacon of hope and compassion. It is when she makes Deadman understand what being a hero is about. It is when she carries an orphan to the top of the world to find the light and a new hope for humanity. It is when she brings a broken family together on christmas eve. It is when she is there, when a non-binary kid who is bullied needs a friend. It is when she holds the line when worlds are ending and everyone has fallen.

    Not a good issue. Seriously, this title should've stayed dead after Orlando's run, because since then it has played piggyback to whatever event was going on at the time and now it has barely anything to say as it drudges through its last few issues. I don't blame Jody Houser for this. Or Marc Andreyko before her. I know they can write good comics. I blame the editorial mandate that this book must have had. I saw some people complaining about this title going digital first, but really, it's not worth being in anyone's physical collection. The story is dumb and simple and not worth reading. I hope the US government decides nuking the hurricane is the best option in the next issue.
