Supergirl #8

After an exhaustingly long day (for me that is), I now bring you the introduction of Kara's new gal pal and roommate in the form of....

Then, later at Siobhan's performance, this happens:

Overall I enjoyed this issue and can't wait to see more of Silver Banshee!

On an unrelated note, is it me or is George Perez's art becoming increasingly bizarre each time? The way he's drawing eyes lately is looking freakishly creepy. :o

On another unrelated note...if Power Girl and Supergirl are supposed to be doppelgängers of each other shouldn't they look...you know...alike? I get that Supergirl is supposed to be a teenager and Peege is supposed to be adult version of the character, but if Kara-L is supposed to be 22-23 in this new DCU and Kara-El around 17-18, then they shouldn't look too far apart in age? Kara-El looked 12 for most of this issue. :/

/nitpicking.

As soon as I saw the name Siobhan, I knew she HAD to be the Silver Banshee.

Can't see anything wrong with the eyes to be honest.

Isn't Perez currently suffering an illness or some kind of problem that's making it difficult for him to draw? The man has been going at it for decades now.

Not that I've been aware of, he was sketching like a machine at the London Comic Con, and taking pre-convention commission orders for the rest of the year.

Perez always was found of her.

I never saw the appeal myself.

I think I see it; she has a simple and incredibly striking visual (Black and white, skull face superimposed over a human one. An interesting range of powers which make her a challenge for the Super-set (Though I thought Byrnes weird limitations were more annoying than anything) and a conveneintly vague range of motivations possible.

I giggled madly at the scene with the television as a scene from the Star Trek IV movie flashed briefly into my mind.

Ha! Me, too! "Computer? Hello Computer?" "Just use the keyboard." "Keyboard. How quaint..."

...and suddenly Scotty can touch-type like a beast despite never having worked with a keyboard before.

It's the noses that look odd to me.

Man, I like this new Supergirl series. Still waiting for trades, though.

So is Silver Banshee a face in this new 52?

Mmmh--
At least, ridiculous costume or not, the art is quite lovely and detailed! A bit 90s-ysh, but like the good ones.

It really looks like Supergirl is wearing a swimsuit instead of a costume. Particularly on that "getting her boots off sitting on the bed"-panel.... T

he Silver Banshee looks awful now! I mean, worse than before!!

Why does every female Superman villain have to reform? His rogue's gallery is patheticaly small as it is.

Och, I have such a weakness for spunky, Scottish lasses. This new Banshee looks like a fun character, though I agree with Mullon that the number of girls trying to take out the Boy in Blue is lackluster.
Speaking of weakness, as much as I dislike the new costume: Page 2, panel 8. Mmmmmmmmm~

Siobhan mentioned that her mother was dead, so maybe Siobhan will be "cured" or whatever and her mother will come back as Silver Banshee. Be an awkward relationship, having your friend's mother and father as your archnemeses.
And...um...second on the weakness

heh pretty cool, that must be how Kara learns English... i REALLY hope they keep Siobhan as if not a hero then not a villain. i like her in her first appearance... i LOVED her this issue :D
