Supergirl is on a whirlwind tour
of the DC Universe as she explores her strange new world and
the numerous threats that populate it. Along the way, she
encounters many of the world's premier super-teams - including
the JLA, the JSA, the Teen Titans and the Outsiders. But will
she be an ally or an enemy of these great heroes?...
is the latest Supergirl graphic novel from DC comics.
I have to admit to being rather bored of the entire Supergirl
story line. The whole plot rests, yet again, on the fact that
no one is sure whether she can be trusted. How many times
have we visited and revisited this particular story arc with
think by now that instead of everyone being suspicious all
of the time, that things would have moved on a bit and the
character of Supergirl would be allowed to grow into a more
fleshed out super hero. But, no, this is basically the same
story that has been bubbling on for years. And that's a shame
because the rest of the basic plot is rather enjoyable.
a homage to Superman III in this collection, when Supergirl
is split into two very separate entities, but the rest of
the time her rather off-handish attitude is quite simply put
down to the fact that everyone treats her with mild contempt
- or a large amount of suspicion. Come on! Give the poor girl
the friend or foe element, this collection is entertaining
enough, and the illustrations are great. I loved the way that
Ian Churchill tended to use a whole page (or double page)
every few pages to give certain elements of the story much
more of a graphical impact - it almost felt like the comic
book version of slow motion in a movie.
my moaning about buying into the same story for years, this
is entertaining. Just don't go expecting any surprises.
