    I have been critical of Kings writing in the past, be it the meandering Heroes in. Crisis or the seemingly going noewhere of Batman Catwoman. Yet this book, purchased as a guilty pleasure has been, for me, his best work. Evley's art makes you want to plough through the book, yet Kings wordy script means you have to spend time on each page, which makes you appreciate the art even more; a true creative symbiotic relationship that allows the reader to fully immerse themselves into the this run.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 15, 2022

    Bilquis Evely delivers some fantastic art on every page of this issue. The art style is beautifully detailed and delivers on the epic scale of the story and the personal nature of its characters. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Feb 15, 2022

    Without a doubt, I believe this is the best Supergirl story ever told. Tom King, Bilquis Evely, Matheus Lopes and Clayton Cowles have created a masterpiece with Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow. With beautiful art and masterful writing, one would be remiss to not pick up this series whether in single issue form or when it eventually comes out in graphic novel form! Read Full Review

    Tom King's books are almost unfailingly brilliant, but one thing they'll never be accused of is being a feel-good experience. After seven issues with Supergirl and her young companion Ruthye, we've seen a darker version of the DCU's space frontier than ever before. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 15, 2022

    It's not easy ending stories, which is probably why so many continue on as if the adventure may never end. Here though, King and Evely have captured the essence of a life well lived, and how we can become blinded by things that don't actually matter in the grand scheme of things. This issue delivers a satisfactory resolution while adding to both Ruthye and Supergirl's journeys. Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow shows how a life well lived is itself justice in the face of the injustices we experience. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Feb 15, 2022

    While Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #8 isn't the best issue of the series, it is not far off the pace. It's really just some of the technical aspects of King's ending, because the content works wonderfully, connecting the reader to both Ruthye and Kara. As expected, the art is as stunning as ever and gives the reader a taste of what could come for Kara in her future. While the series connects the reader with the frailties of the human psyche, it also offers hope and the satisfaction of persevering through the difficult moments in life while revealing one's own inner strength.

    Comics Bookcase - Zack Quaintance Feb 15, 2022

    A satisfying conclusion to a True Grit homage starring Kara Zor-El, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #8 doubles down on all that has made this series interesting, from the confessional lyrical scripting to the absolutely stunning sci-fi artwork. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 16, 2022

    As a story, the eight issues of Supergirl - Woman of Tomorrow make for a deep and weirdly concise look at loss, love, murder, anger, and retribution. Theres one hell of a lot going on in the series, but Kings conclusion almost feels too tidy in the uneasiness of its own ending. It almost feels like the whole thing would have been better-served ending five pages early before its final scene. It poses more problems than it solves. Better to end it on a distant beach with the three central characters and the resolution in the heat of the moment. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Feb 15, 2022

    Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #8 ends the latest Tom King experiment with a bait-and-switch ending, misery, suffering, and lies.  Of course, this is a Tom King series, so it's to be expected.  That said, the art is exquisite, and if nothing else, you'll be happy with the visuals.

    Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, when taken as a whole, is an ambitious comics story with some genuinely shining moments and even this final issue isn't without merits. Read Full Review

    The art is stunning. The art has somehow made this more palatable than it should be. But this isn't Supergirl, at least not how I think of her. And now I fear we won't be seeing Supergirl for a bit. Read Full Review

    What a beautiful surprise this series turned into! A dramatic, passionate and exciting investigation of Supergirl's code against killing ending that shows King understands the character better than the dodgy early chapters suggested, and in the end I even cared about Ruthye. For a while I was just reading this book for the art, but the writing caught up in the end. (Now can Kara have her own series again??)

    Series definitely peaked at issue 6 but I still found this to be a solid ending. Evely really did masterful work on this series. There was some slow parts but all in all I really liked what her and King accomplished here.

    I leave this story as I came into it, with the sense that this was never a Supergirl story. It was a Ruthye story that got Supergirl attached to it. While Ruthye's character stays well told and consistent, Kara continues to be pasted in with little to no regards about her characterization. She becomes whatever is needed to tell Ruthye's story.

    Maybe for a Supergirl fan the real payout of this story is that we saw a rare return of Comet. We don't get a deep dive with him and Kara's connection, but then this story was never really about Kara. But for the few panels we do have Comet around, King does portray him pretty well. Of course Comet ultimately cared about Kara because she dedicated her life to helping others. It would have b more

    Just a horrendous story, yet another one where King takes a noble hero and throws that hero in the dirt probably to alleviate his own conscience and to feel better about himself. Horrible characterization for Supergirl, the "twist" at the end was so obvious and, of course, miserable at the same time. I genuinely laughed at Supergirl's lesbian haircut, let's hope they won't continue with it. There are two pages here I really liked but for the misery tour we've had to suffer it's just too little, too late. Let's hope DC will give Supergirl to a writer who doesn't have a feminist agenda (like they did these last few years) or to someone who doesn't hate superheroes, there is big potential ahead for the character, at least during Dark Crisis si more

    What a disastrous end for a misinterpretation representation of Supergirl in this series.

    Edit: Now I realize why DC Comics it's been so bad in sales. Since DC hired this writers with edgys views for all characters. This make long time and casual fans walk away of this comics. And I know there is some characters, specially in DC who are good, classic being edgys. But edgy, killer, antihero doesn't apply for all superheroes.

    In the blood-covered Supergirl cover of this story, the question is asked should an arch-villain be killed? DC writer Tom King's message is ultimately yes. But not before being punished, multilated, and spending many years in the Phantom Zone away from life. Troubling story and writing again from Tom King. Do horrible things happen in war? Yes. But the definition of war and "organized crime" by brigands are an important distinction. If Tom King writing was that Batman's values should encourage the mutilation,Phantom Zone imprisonment for a lifetime, and death of the Batman villain, what would be the public takeaway? That it is powerful and meaningful? Like when Supergirl, "Woman of Tomorrow," stood by and watched a mob stone someone to more
