    This was a strong issue that really drove home how much we should hate Batman Who Laughs. We also see just how much we should be afraid of this new Supergirl. The main title has many things to look forward to, and this issue has set a very interesting tone and I cannot wait to see the progress. Read Full Review

    The art by Laura Braga is almost universally strong, but her Batman Who Laughs isn't quite up to the rest of the issue " he looks oddly chunky and cloaked, instead of the horrific angular monster he usually is. But as both a lead in to Kara's new status quo and a strong solo issue, it's one of the best Supergirl issue in a while. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Dec 2, 2019

    The art by Laura Braga is pretty fantastic and works perfectly with the script. There is a dark twist at the end that I wasn't expecting and that I was lukewarm on. It feels a little forced. That being said it is mostly a very good issue. It was wonderful right up until the ending. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Dec 2, 2019

    I love this flashback story of Supergirl's last day on Krypton. I like the new wrinkles that Robert Venditti throws in. I can easily ignore the more unsavory New 52 last day. And the art perfectly fits the story. All that I love. But all this darkness? And Supergirl again giving in to the temptation of evil as a way to harden herself? I am kind of sick of it. Still, maybe I just have to skip those pages. Read Full Review

    I would recommend this one if you are a fan of the Supergirl story. Not too sure about having to buy comics from two different series to follow it up. Pick one and stick to it I reckon. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 30, 2019

    Its a fun novelty to see Kara before the tragedy that would come to define her life on Earth. The menace of the reality of whats going on isnt nearly as strong as it should be to deliver the darkness that launches this issue into the next chapters in the life of Supergirl. Theres so much more that could have been delivered in a look back at Karas earlier life. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Nov 27, 2019

    This issue was a bit unnecessary and didn't really add anything to the current story. In addition, it repeats a familiar story with a twist so obvious that the readers will get the gist of the entire issue within the first few pages. The art is pretty damn good at least. Read Full Review

    It's an interesting story, even if one that feels too familiar (and at one point even has a really odd placement of a Spider-Man joke), but it continues something that has been far too done with Supergirl stories as of late: focuses entirely on her survivor's guilt. Read Full Review
