    Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #2 is a stunningly good issue. The art by Biquis Evely and Matheus Lopes is beautiful and stunning and worth the cost of the book alone. Capping it off is Tom King's untraditional writing approach that allow for multi-level interpretation. If you choose to skip this series you are really missing something remarkable. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 21, 2021

    With the story already 25% over at the end of issue #2, King has quite a bit of ground to cover before the two characters are fully resolved in their journey. Hes got some time, but timing is going to be a huge factor in getting everything to develop as slowly as it is and still resolve by the end of the eighth issue. Evelys art seems perfectly matched with the pacing and the strange setting of a dusty interstate journey that just happens to be taking place in deep space.  Read Full Review

    The story of the other survivor of Krypton's explosion has been spotty over the year, but two issues in this feels like it could be the defining Supergirl run since she returned from an extended limbo in the early 2000s. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Jul 20, 2021

    Overall, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow succeeds because of both great writing and even better art. I never thought I would be quite as invested in this series as I am, but this issue absolutely has me hooked. Supergirl hasnt quite had this kind of focus and purpose for a long time and Im excited to see exactly where this book is going. Tom King, Bilquis Evely and Matheus Lopes are absolutely killing it with possibly one of the best Supergirl stories ever written! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jul 20, 2021

    Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #2 continues the True Grit "homage," adds in some stakes for Kara to accept Ruthye's mission, and it's all weird in an interesting sort of way. Read Full Review

    A unique and interesting voice carries this fine little comic along. Read Full Review

  • 7.0 - Nicole Drum Jul 21, 2021

    For as well as King has developed and understands Ruthye, one can't help but feel like he doesn't know Kara at all which ultimately leads to this issue being a strange collision of flawless art and less outstanding words. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jul 23, 2021

    A very good Koriand'r story. But not a very good Supergirl story, a non-character in her own book, an extension of others, and frankly mostly unlikable. Knowing DC, I shouldn't be surprised. Read Full Review
