    So overall, this was a great issue. We got to catch our breath after the Cyborg Superman arc. We got a little bit of closure in the Lar-On arc. And we get to see just who this Supergirl is. She is optimistic, seeing the best in everyone. People look to her for guidance. But she is still young and her life isn't perfect. That moment on the cloud shows that she is still working some things out herself. And the art was very very good. Read Full Review

    The writing remains good, in spite of one significant flaw in the script, and the artwork was much improved over recent issues. Read Full Review

    While the book's general structure may result in Orlando returning to this every so often, it's just disappointing to see that it doesn't get a chance to reach the natural, and expected stopping point within the covers of this issue. Read Full Review

    Orlando is putting in the work to fully flesh out Kara as a character"it just may be a while longer before we see it fully pay off. Read Full Review

    This issue seems to be a stand alone, and not really part of a bigger storyline. As such, it's not necessarily a "must read" from that stand point, but it certainly builds on Kara's character. There is a nicecameo on the last page which potentially sets up the next story arc. If you're not sure to whom I'm referring, check out Emerald Empress's disappearance in Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #4. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Mar 8, 2017

    Overall, the start of this story reads as underdeveloped, a sudden redirection that takes for granted that we remember Lar-On, let alone care about him. The plot wasn't there, and with little action to show this issue was below standard for Supergirl, who can typically be relied on for drama that has heart, even if clich. The artistic transition from Brian Ching to Matias Bergara is slight enough not to be jarring, which might be a silver lining for those searching. Here's hoping this arc finds better footing in Supergirl #8. Read Full Review

    This book has probably been the biggest pleasant surprise of Rebirth. Read Full Review

    A familiar story and adequate art make this just passable. It's only Issue #7 and this is the best that can be mustered for Supergirl? Disappointing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 8, 2017

    This is a silly filler issue that is almost fun, but ends up being forgettable and worse yet, skippable.  The art was good, but there is nothing about this issue that makes me want to recommend it to anyone.  As of now, I'd wait until Saturn Girl and Emerald Empress show up to worry about anything going on here.
