    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Dec 20, 2021

    It's almost an afterthought, but this issue sets up what is clearly the end run of the series. And, it's a great moment at the end when Supergirl finally confronts Krem. It's a real testament to the quality of the issue, that this excitement is overshadowed by the beautiful exploration of Kara's character. This is an issue one could read without any context and still "get it." And, then you'd have to get the rest"! Read Full Review

    Supergirl might seem like an odd character for this type of story from King, but in many ways it feels like she's always been waiting for this story"to let her voice be truly heard. Read Full Review

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

    Supergirls origin has been covered countless times over the decades. King finds a way to tell it again that adds to it...and adds to the intensity of it immeasurably. Siegel and Shuster had a pretty good idea with Superman. Otto Binder improved on that idea with Supergirl. King finds a way to make that story infinitely more badass in a very appealing and emotionally gripping narrative thats accompanied by some very, very beautiful artwork that closes out the third quarter of an eight-part series.  Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 21, 2021

    Evely delivers some beautiful and breathtaking visuals throughout the issue. There are so many striking and brilliantly detailed moments to be found throughout the issue that I found myself lingering on certain panels to take in everything I was seeing. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Jan 9, 2022

    As Supergirl leaps towards its conclusion, I have to give a hand to Tom King, Bilquis Evely, Matheus Lopes and Clayton Cowles. This has got to be one of the best written, best drawn, best colored and best lettered comics DC is publishing at the moment. With quality like this, there's no doubt in my mind that this team is going to stick the landing! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Dec 21, 2021

    King might be dragging the story out now, but hed set up the story strongly enough that it can endure a slower than normal issue. The catch is making that narrative detour engaging, which King accomplishes without much trouble. Read Full Review

    It may not win over some readers"it does have, at times, a bit of self-seriousness to it"but it's a really lovely read and while it does feel a bit like stalling for this title overall, it's so good. It's a worthy pause. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Dec 21, 2021

    Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #6 is expertly structured and beautifully drawn, but it suffers from too much tell and not enough show for the emotional moments. While the recount of Krypton's demise is engaging, this is effectively a filler issue that gives readers roughly three pages worth of progress. In short, it's a beautiful waste. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Dec 23, 2021

    Okay, this was as much a review of past comics as it was this one. I do admire the resilience of this Supergirl, her unwillingness to just give up. I like the way her parents are portrayed. This is Kara's issue not Ruthye's. And I love Comet. And for these reasons, I stand by the earlier statement that this is the best issue of this series so far. But King changing the origin and the overall funereal tone of the whole thing still remains almost unbearable. Read Full Review
