    This was a fabulous issue, my favorite of the run for its overt message. Kara is a hero. Based on Earth. Where her family lives. And she will save everyone. Just perfect. Read Full Review

    Supergirl’s rebirth so far has kept to what makes for a quintessential superhero story. Despite having super ability, it’s how one handles adversity that makes them great. Read Full Review

    Overall, reading Supergirl has the familiarity of watching your favorite childhood cartoon. It's nothing new, but it's fun and familiar. And that's the whole point. Read Full Review

    There really is nothing here to get readers excited.  Cyborg Superman's dialogue seems stuck on an endless loop and Kara just flies around trying to save our main characters.  The art seems like a bad match for where the story is going and with nothing new happening, I can't recommend this to anyone.

    Overall, I don't like this issue. There are cool moments; some of the action is neat and the art does work in places. Kara's characterization is still consistent and I think Steve Orlando is doing a good job with that. However, the issue is not all that engaging. And if an issue is going to rely on action, the art needs to work more than it does here. The way a lot of the characters are drawn, their faces in particular, kills a lot of this issue for me.
