"I never got to tell the last Ambush Bug story. You know? My Justice League — I'm done with them. I'm playing around with variations on them in Justice League 3001, but Justice League International isn't coming back. It's done. I had my say, and there are no other stories I want to tell. But with Ambush Bug, there's a last story that wasn't told. The character had one more story left..." - Keith Giffen

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.

"Lately, I've had a lot more fun writing female characters than male. I'm doing a female character comic coming up — I unfortunately have to be secretive about that one for now — and it was honestly more fun than I've had in years." - Keith Giffen, talking about what he eventually revealed was this story

So I've decided to post issue 29 and 31 together (Issue 30 is a Will Pfeifer story, that I actually really like, and may post after this is all over)... Not a lot of narrative consequence happens in 29 So I thought we'd plow through.

No sooner does Kara declare that she will save Thomas life, than an armored man appears out of nowhere, and shoots her with a Kryptonite bullet. everyone else seems locked in time, and unable to re-act but very slowly Superman is able to shoot the man with his heat vision, this causes them to teleport to somewhere else...

I'm gonna say while it had some high points, Supergirl Vol 5 was a bit of a mess until Sterling Gates took over as writer. Kelly Puckett's storyline about cancer, isn't as off kilter as the quick change retcons around her origin, and reason for being on Earth... but is probably the weirdest arc in the book... so let's take a look at it.
