I went into this issue expecting to at the least find it boring if not hate it. I love Linda Danvers – she is Supergirl to me and ever since Kara Zor-El replaced her I have been pissed – and mostly pissed because no one ever seemed to mention there was a Supergirl before her. I want her to be acknowledged! And now we have Kara living with people who are Danvers. Can we at least ackowledge her somewhere Steve Orlando?! Anyways, I did not hate this issue. It was actually a good set up of taking what has worked with the Supergirl tv series and applying it to the comic book universe but still keeping it different enough to be its own thing. I sure hope Martian Manhunter shows up soon! That being said, I find the art distracting.

Cat Grant is written as interesting as she is on the tv show in this issue when Kara goes to interview at the new Catco Worldwide Media. I appreciate that they followed continuity and explained that Cat left the daily planet to find this new company. The stuff about Supergirl’s Dad being maybe still alive as a robot annoys me as it has been done before. We don’t need more Kryptonian angst in DC Comics. Can we also get a new artist on this book? Sometimes Ching doesn’t even draw faces!

Well even though the Krypton stuff annoys the crap out of me, at least this is interesting as the Robot Supergirl dad apprently wants to use human sacrifices to bring back Kryptonians….meh.

Meh! I do not care! Supergirl is angsty about Kryptonians and some Kryptonians try to harm earth to bring back Krypton…..I hate to sware here but Steve Orlando is a better writer than this. How many fucking times do I have to read the same FUCKING story from DC!

BORRRRRINNNNNG! See what I said about the last issue. This is not interesting in the least. Done before….so many times it makes my eyes bleed to read it again.

Thank Rao this boring story arc is over and we are getting to something different…I hope. I like that in her interview, Kara says she read Wonder Woman’s book…I wonder if this is the same book from Greg Rucka’s original Wonder Woman run.

This was kind’ve ok but still more Kryptonian bullshit. So Is Lar-On just goong to be allowed to leave the DEO? How many damn Kryptonians are we going to have on this planet for fuck sake. I do not like this series at all so far

It really is a shame we never got to see Supergirl meet Superman before reborn when she would have recognized him as a different superhero then her cousin. All because Steve Orlando wanted to write a dumb story arc about Kara’s father that is exactly the same as 500 other stories about Kryptonians trying to remake Earth into Krypton. The strange thing is in every other comic book Superman has acted like even he does not remember being split in two – but here he tells Kara about it as if he remembers it vaguely. Oh and Barbara Gordon Hipster Purple Batgirl shows up at the end of this just so I can hate this series even more.

This can’t possibly be the Babs and Kara’s first meeting can it? It never happened during the New 52? That seems crazy. Anyways, I like the namedrop of Mammoth City – Plastic Man’s original fictionopolis. And out of all people Magog appears in this comic. Odd. And it looks like he has his Pre-New 52 name and everything.
