The best issue of this run, we finally have at least half an issue that has a proper Supergirl in it.

I'm happy that this terrible run ended a bit better than it started (and continued and continued).

I saw someone mention in the comments that the writer had no control over their run. It seems on par with the DC horror story coming from Mairghread Scott recently.

Supergirl #42

By: Jody Houser, Rachael Stott
Released: Jun 24, 2020

Deemed a threat by the U.S. military, Supergirl is now a wanted villain! General Corvid has come for our hero-and she won’t give up until Kara’s gone for good. Meanwhile, the superstorm rages stronger than ever, while hundreds remain helpless against it. Can Supergirl prove that she’s the hero the people once believed her to be? Or will she l...

Actually was told It’s not a female thing and was given a bunch of examples of the same thing happening to male writers as well. It is a thing that DC is doing to all “mid-level” writers. A few big writers are allowed to do what they want and the rest are made to do what dc tells them or be replaced

Supergirl limps across the finish line at last and does so with as much grace as one might hope — which at this point isn't much really. Writer, artist, and protagonist all deserved better than the editorially-mandated flavorless mush that they were given to work with. Maybe this book's failure will teach DC to treat its female creators and characters with more respect in the future... but I'm n more

Remember, the same thing was going on with Marc Andreyko on this book and some other male writers on other books as well (Batman and the outsiders and Wonder Woman are two examples). It is more of how DC is treating everyone but the 3-4 big writers

I see what Jody tried to accomplish in this issue, bringing back Kara's old fears and foes, but it feels more chaotic and disorganized that it probably should have been for its own good. It's a decent story, albeit not one I'd call well executed, which was a long running problem with Supergirl's series to begin with. Writer after writer, they didn't know what to do with her, how to deveop her furt more

Good start. As always, Snyder knows how to rope you in and start an event very well. He sets up the main players, the conflicts, and the story all very well. My major gripe is that this feels like it has come out of left field. When the original Dark Nights Metal happened, that had setups to it in prelude issues and other Snyder Batman stories, but this kind of feels random. It feels like it more

Death Metal #1 is an awesome first issue. Surprisingly, this issue is unlike many of Snyder's first issues in that there is not as much exposition as usual, which is a welcome addition. Instead, the issue features glimpses into a world that is largely conquered by Perpetua and her stooge the Batman Who Laughs. The premise for this event is interesting, and the stakes seem to be high. The issue fea more

Skin the Cat was fine. It didn't leave an impression.
