    I have a feeling this arc will make a good TPB when its complete, if I had the staying power I would wait and read it all at once. The issue is good, but it didnt really have the flare and excitement of the 1st part. As mentioned I really hope this is the real Supergirl, Loeb has said its the introduction of someone new into Supermans life, but I hope he means for good and not another villain. For all those purists who shout Superman has to be the last of his kind, I say as long as he remains The last SON of Krypton I dont mind the introduction of his cousin (I think Supergirl could be very positive for any young female readers). I wouldnt even mind not being the last son if they found a way to return the real ZOD and not the rubbish we have had recently in Action Comics (it had potential, but was ruined by being revealed as a Russian lookalike). Anyway, enough ranting - Buy this issue! Read Full Review
