Do you think making the corner of Austen and Byrne be in Suicide Slum was a deliberate insult to those writers? I sure hope not. I know Austen is supposed to be awful but Byrne is the one who created Silver Banshee! Anyways, Supergirl confronts Lana about her illness and it is apparently some strange disease no one can cure yet. Then Supergirl helps Henderson take on Silver Banshee who’s back-story is pretty interesting. How cool would it have been if Kara tracked down Linda Danvers to ask her about Silver Banshee? I remember them fighting a lot. Ugh. Anyways, this issue was good.

I am surprised I didn’t guess it! Lana is becoming the Insect Queen again! During the Silver Age and during Kurt Busiek’s run on Superman Lana became the Insect Queen. That is what this disease is doing to her. I have to say that this was tremendous issue. Matt Camp’s art was fantastic and a treat to look at! They should keep him on this book if Igle decides to leave.
