    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 22, 2021

    The journey of Supergirl and her companion has already been so many different places. Its difficult to imagine whats going to happen in the second half of the mini-series as the journey thus far. Kings pacing has been impressively well-thought-out to this point. A slow and steady journey to find the killers turns a major corner next issue. Itll be interesting to see how Supergirl handles the brigands who are as close as the next major planet at issues end. Read Full Review

    It's no secret that Tom King relies on his previous experiences in the CIA for some of the emotional content in his stories. It doesn't always work- see Identity Crisis. However, this series as evidenced in Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #4 is a high watermark of comic book storytelling which sees King translate those experiences masterfully. Read Full Review

    King and Evely are halfway done in creating one of the more memorable Supergirl stories in years. Provided King sticks the landing this could be revered as one of the all-time classic Supergirl stories. Read Full Review

    Evely delivers some beautiful art throughout the issue. The art is just as compelling and emotional as the stoy. Read Full Review

    But even for a King book, this issue is rough. I'm a little surprised it's not under the Black Label line for how stark and brutal it gets in its depiction of interstellar war. Read Full Review

    King, Evely, Lopes and Cowles have found a way to make me excitedly anticipate heartache! With such an intriguing story, its a wonder to what lengths Supergirl and Ruthye will go to to catch this madman and as long as the art stays as amazing as it is, then series could end up being a low-key classic!

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Sep 21, 2021

    Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #4 is a story about endurance. How much shock and horror can Supergirl endure before it becomes too much, and by extension, this comic asks the same of its readers. Evely's art is mindbendingly good and the real tragedy is how much the art is violated by the misery of the story it's being forced to tell. Read Full Review

    While the third issue of Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow delivered on the hype the title has received over its short run thus far, issue #4 crumples a bit under the weight of its narrative. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Sep 24, 2021

    The art and the colors are so fantastic. It is a shame that they are giving us this. Perhaps the worst thing about this is that I feel a bit complicit. I was there cheering with King's Mister Miracle, never thinking about what long term fans of that character thought of the suicidal rendition there. And now I am reaping what I sowed, a Tom King Supergirl. Read Full Review
