    Supergirl #1 - 5 "Power" Talkback (Spoilers)

    Like This Thread!
    The new Supergirl gets her own ongoing series!

    SUPERGIRL #1


    Written by: Jeph Loeb
    Art by: Ian Churchill and Norm Rapmund

    Superstar writer Jeph Loeb and the red-hot art team of Ian Churchill & Norm Rapmund join forces to deliver a new monthly series spinning out of the sell-out run in SUPERMAN/BATMAN featuring the adventures of Superman's cousin from Krypton, the one and only Kara Zor-el! Kara's story begins with the same brand of high-flying adventure as she begins her whirlwind tour of the DCU! And the first hero she squares off against is Power Girl! Before this tale guest-starring the JSA is complete, secrets behind the origins of both will be revealed!

    I always admit when I'm wrong, and this will have to be one of those times. I was turned off by the art in the S/B (Supergirl #0) issue and wasn't expecting to follow the series past #1, but after reading it I think my mind may have changed. The art worked fine in this issue and the interesting connection between Power Girl & Supergirl got my attention. I'll have to find a way to continue to read this book.

    SUPERGIRL #3 is out and it's another good page turner.

    i could not believe the number of cover variants this week.i knew about the neal adams cover for all star superman, but it would have been nice if they announced the supergirl variant. i feel indifferent about the cover variant concept, but im getting tired of having variant covers of every issue of supergirl.

    You'd think people would be more vocal about the variant issue coming out in the comic industry again. I did think that Turner's cover was better than Churchill's though. There's something about his linework that shines.

    By thy side,

    Supergirl #4 is awful. Awful. Loeb has written Supergirl to be a completely unstoppable force, resulting in her beating up everyone in the DCU. #1 has her beating up Power Girl. #2 has her beating up Superboy and the Teen Titans. #3 has her her beating up the Outsiders. Now, #4 has her beating up the JLA and Lex Luthor. Enough is enough. Supergirl is simply a terrible Mary Sue character with a body anroexics strive for. The plot is something that came right out of bad fanfiction; Luthor brings out Supergirl's dark side through black kryptonite obtained from Darkseid, who supposed to be occupied with being stuck behind the Source Wall.

    Simply put, everything is awful. Do not buy this book.

    So which Supergirl is legit?? I am glad they didn't make her evil. But, it was cool to see her confrontation with the big 3. And I enjoyed Superman's response to evil Kara when she claimed to be stronger than him.

    Okay, I'm sorry, I can't take it anymore. The drawing of Supergirl's torso seriously disturbs me.
