Ah, Supergirl.
Hmmm… how do I cut through all the clever subtext and figure out why this series is so appealing? Let’s see, it’s the adventures of a leggy blonde fighting crime in a crop top and miniskirt — drawn by one of the most talented artists in the industry, Ian Churchill.
Well, I guess we’re there.
The latest incarnation of the Maiden Of Might, Superman’s long-lost cousin Kara Zor-El — who burst onto the scene a couple of years ago in the pages of Superman/Batman, courtesy writer Jeph Loeb and artist Michael Turner — soars into here own series and, sure enough, straight into trouble.
Kara runs the gauntlet of super-villainy in this story and with guest stars galore, including the Teen Titans, the Justice Society, the Justice League and the Outsiders, she figures out just who is trying to make her new life on earth a living hell and sets up a knock-down, drag out battle to the finish — with herself!
