Supergirl’s journey across the cosmos continues! Her hunt to bring the killer Krem to justice brings her and the young alien in her care to a small planet, where they discover that there are still some very small minds, even on the outer edges of the galaxy. The cold welcome the locals give the Woman of Steel makes her suspicious enough to go looking for secrets they want to keep buried, and what she finds is nothing short of horrifying. Can she and Ruthye get off the planet alive now that these deadly sins have been exposed?

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Aug 17, 2021

    Quite simply, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #3 feels like an Eisner Award winning "Best Issue." Top to bottom, front to back, inside and out it is simply immaculate. It exemplifies everything great about comics as an art form and it also exists as a sample of how literate and artistic comics can be. This is the kind of issue that creators strive to make. Whatever I've said in the review about, it doesn't do the issue justice. So, do yourself a favor and buy this issue. You don't have to buy the rest of the series, but if you get this issue I think you'll have a hard time not getting the rest. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 18, 2021

    Elsewhere Lopes paints the sky around Maypole with a gentle dazzle. The big-sky, small-town story could easily have come from an old cowboy story. The space western feel of the story thus far would feel overpoweringly silly were it not for meticulous work on the part of King, Evely, and Lopes. On a surface level, its a story that could have fit in just about any other genre setting. On a nuts-and-bolts level, this story wouldnt have to happen in the company of Supergirl. King and company are bringing it to the page in a way that wouldnt feel quite at home anywhere else.  Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 17, 2021

    This title keeps getting better. With so many Kryptonians around Earth, none feel that unique anymore. King and Evely tell this compelling and fascinating tale of a larger than life hero being treated like one of the most special characters thats ever existed. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 17, 2021

    The events that go on here could easily fit into another character's story, but the youth of the two main characters and the way it affects them on a more personal level really sell the events here. We're almost halfway through Kara and Ruthye's story, and this could easily become one of the best Super-family stories in recent memory. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 17, 2021

    Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow#3continues to show that its strength lies in earnest and honest captions from a child's perspective and the horror of the world around Supergirl that she so desperately wants to protect her from. This latest issue offers a parable elevated by art that forces you to linger and process.Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrowfeels like a once-in-a-lifetime story that is powerful in its message.

    King, Evely, Lopes and Cowles are an absolutely dynamic team and have breathed new life into Supergirl and have given us another amazing character in the young Ruthye. This book has great writing, stellar art, fantastic coloring and awesome lettering - I cant wait to see how the rest of the story unfolds! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Aug 17, 2021

    Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #3 is a skillfully constructed, gorgeously rendered comic that adds a very different story to the Supergirl legend. However, King appears to be setting up Supergirl to pick up where Strange Adventures leaves off next month with a story that reads like Schindler's List edited down to just the concentration camp scenes. Some folks have a strange idea of entertainment. The score is reflective of the technical execution of this comic, not the entertainment value. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Aug 20, 2021

     But I shouldn't dwell on those things. I liked some of the Supergirl I saw here. That fierce hero who detests injustice and won't rest. Someone who carers. That was here. I have to hang on to that. I hope I see more of that moving forward.  The grades here will always be lifted up by the art, probably a full letter grade. Read Full Review

    The book is aware of the criticisms facing Supergirl's run by taking her away from her TV depiction. But in all honesty, what made Supergirl stand out for me is her willingness to dive into the ugliness of a situation instead of always hoping for the best; otherwise she's just a blonde gender-flipped Superman. Plus she's authentic in how she has no patience for the outright racism on display. While Clark would be willing to be more subtle in his approach, Kara refuses to play by such cruel rules.

    Hence why she goes to the lengths to expose the town's crime they were accomplices of. There is no greater blow back to an otherwise normal town than showing the ugliness they benefitted from. It also gives the reader a better reason to more

    This quality of the art is almost unseen in comics. These colorful landscapes remind me of Nicola Bayley's haunting art in The Tyger Voyage from my childhood. 10+ for the art.

    Then in comes Tom Kings horrid Supergirl take and ruins the whole read. Of course, this isn't a Supergirl book despite what the title would have you believe. It's a Ruthye book where "Supergirl", and I put that in quotes intentionally, has a big part.

    Almost all text is Ruthye speaking, and sadly that's a good thing in this "Supergirl" book, because every time "Kara" opens her mouth it's the comic book equivalent of nails on a chalkboard. There's nothing Kara in the dialog. A person who has never read a Supergirl book would do a better job. Pasti more

    This isn't a poorly constructed comic, but holy shit does Ruthye's narration get old. This is not an exciting book. I appreciate what Tom King pulled off at the end there, but it does not make up for my slogging through this one.

    Damn. When Tom King is good there’s no one better. And I can’t overstate the beauty of the art.

    Reading this comic gave me the exceedingly rare memory of how excited I used to get about the very greatest comics of my youth, how wonderfully surprised I was page by page, unprepared for their greatness in advance, the way I’d spend hours poring over every bit of the artist’s line work and emotional storytelling, allowing the coloring to wash over me like a wave, reading and rereading every word, marveling at every word choice, taking it all in slowly in the sad knowledge it would soon be over. (I’m 52. I was a teenager and in my early 20s when Vertigo launched and peaked, when DKR, Watchmen, Batman: Year One and many other more

    A huge improvement over the first two issues! Let's hope this is the series finally finding its feet and not just a stopped clock being right twice a day.

    I did enjoy this one more than the others but a liiiitle subtlety from King would have done wonders, I do think he actually believes he was subtle with it but he wasn't at all.

    Awful art and a pretty uninteresting story. I'm really disappointed.
