Why King always needs to make the life of the characters he write miserable?
Or why he always want to make them murderous? :(
Or other most important question, why DC still trying to make Kara's life miserable??

First with her last ongoing series in the last arc. Later Future Grim State, and now this.

I was very hopeful for Kara future since good characterization of more

Before becoming a Superwoman, Kara awkwardly enters adulthood. I like how Tom King writes Kara like a legendary hero in a similar manner to Red Sonja. She's found a world to thrive on and isn't held back by her past here. But she doesn't quite understand what it means to be an adult yet; does anybody who turns 18 or 21 feel any different than they do as teenagers? So when a child asks for her help more

Haters on here are out of their minds....what Supergirl comic in the last five years has been NEAR this level of fun? Please let me know....This was a great issue with a more adult F--- you Kara and it worked. Maybe people were upset about the Dog...understandable.

My first review for Comic Book Roundup ... how exciting!

A straightforward yet captivating story that left me wanting more. This iteration of Supergirl seems to be alarming a few readers however this is the first issue, we need to give Tom King time to delve into the series. There may be an explanation for Karas unusual behaviour. The medieval styled language makes for good comedy and i more

I found this to be quite a lot of fun and incredible artwork from Bilquis Everly. The story has great character stakes for a character that I wasn’t previously interested in. Another great book from Tom King.

Art is a 9-10, but this isn't a Supergirl comic so I can't give anything else than a 1.

I buy a comic with Supergirl on it, I expect Supergirl in it. It's like if I buy a pizza and get a fish dish. It might be well made fish dish, but I ordered pizza.

This is not Kara, it's Rooster Cogburn wearing a Supergirl-Edgar-Suit.

That double standard does not only go for DC though. If Kal had been drinking and fighting and puking you can bet this would have been reflected in the reviewer scores for breaking character. When it comes to Kara though barely a handful of the "professional" reviewers weigh it in their score. Kudos to those who do. There should have been more of them.

Æther - Jun 20, 2021

She didnt start a fight, she protected a girl who was attacked and robbed. Alcohol is not only bad people, its common for all types of people to celebrate with it. To have kara wait till she is 21 goes to show what a girlscout she actually is, and you can obviously tell... this is her first time. Im just fine with this being a depiction of 21 year old kara myself.

Wow! This was atrocious even by Tom King standards. It sounded like something Bendis would write, but I'm sure Tom thought he sounded highly intelligent, just as his fans love to think about themselves. Poor Supergirl, after the cringey tv show and the bad comics from the last years, now she has to go through this torture too.

It's one of Tom King's best first issues! Kara doesn't seem out of character here, King finds a nice balance of her shedding her teenage years and coming into adulthood as many people have. Bilquis Evely is stellar as always. One of the best artists of our generation.

This is basically True Grit in comic form. Supergirl is Jeff Bridges/John Wayne. Not the most original start to a tale of revenge but classic and fun no doubt. I feel its more a 7.5/8 out of 10 for me, but I gotta rate it a 10 because of all the irrational haters who rate Kings comics 1 and have literally nothing interesting to say in their reviews.

I agree in many ways with Linkush, this isn't a real ending and I was flipflopping on if I was completely satisfied with it.

Greatest Batman run ever. Can't wait for the Batman/Catwoman mini series.

Strange that alot of peole think this is some kinda ending, cause its not... we have only been told just over 85% of the story.

So yeah, a lot of people have been writing sloppy reviews and should probably stop and think before they go blabbering on about workings they can barely understand.
