Supergirl 18 – 20

Well, the doppelganger wasn’t Linda Danvers, it was Dark Angel trying to mess with Supergirl’s mind. It seems the monitors wanna make sure Supergirl “belongs” on our earth and isn’t an anomaly. I liked how what Dark Angel was saying was similar to the complains current fans have about this Supergirl. That was a nice touch by Kelly and I think he made his point in the end by proving this Supergirl is here to stay.

Supergirl flies across the country making amends with the people she has hurt. Beginning with Boomerang and ending with Superman. In this way, Joe Kelly caps off his run perfectly. I really feel like this is a new era for the character and she is going to be a lot less angsty now. Joe Kelly’s run, while confusing sometimes, he did the best he could with what he was given. I applaud him for that. Great issue.

Tony Bedard begins his fill-in arc by crossing over with Amazons Attack. Now that turned me off reading this at first but after cracking it open, I was amazed at how well-done it was. This was definitely the best issue of this series yet. Supergirl is more likeable than ever, which makes sense after the previous issue, and she is drawn anotimically correct and not anorexic. We get inside her mind and she doesn’t seem like a total bitch. I loved it! Plus seeing the civilian side of Amazons Attack was refreshing. There was also nice use of Supergirl’s powers with the Super-Breath and her weakness against magic. A very good start for Bedard.
