I am a huge fan of Supergirl, always have been, but Kara Zor-El has had a rough time finding her place both in the comics canon, and on screen. Her much maligned 1984 movie is often cited as the reason Hollywood has no faith in superheroines. I think the film, while flawed, is not as bad as it's made out to be, and I quite enjoy it, but that's another story.

Likewise the first 33 issues of her solo series after her reintroduction were uneven at best, and downright horrible at worst thanks to her (editorially mandated?) on again off again grimdark past, and anger management issues stemming there from. Stalkerish boyfriends, the inability to keep any supporting cast members past the very brief stays of each creative team, and oh yeah need I remind you of the time she tried to cure cancer?

I'm so psyched to see (admittedly overlong) trailer for her new CBS series which promises a fun tone, and a great ride.

So let's celebrate with the issue where Sterling Gates came on the book and established a new tone for the character, that made her book a joy to read again, a fact which in my opinion, has remained true to this very day even if Sterling's continuity is gone.

Walked into my comic shop today, missed the chance to pick up the "last" issues of Teen Titans (though from what I seen what they did with Superboy Prime and Indigo that was a good thing) and Superboy. But I found the last issue for the Kid Flash miniseries and imagine my shock to this ONE page in the book.

This is a hard issue to narrow down so I'll keep it to the anvils that seem to go somewhere. Be sure I'm missing gold though.

But between Octoboss and assorted Bizarros, it was a tough read.

Adventure Comics #9, out this week, ran with three stories- the first was James Robinson's elaboration on the Legion's part in the Last Stand of New Krypton.

It starts, as some things do, at the end.  )
