Supergirl Vol. 1: Reign of the Cyborg Supermen


May 18, 2017 Issue #60 - Father John Misty Bookmark and Share

This is a slightly disjointed book art-wise, with the first chapter’s more realistic style contrasting mightily with the bulk of the book’s kinetic, cartoony style by Brian Ching. Both are good (especially Ching’s), but the book would be stronger with consistency on this front. We can mostly recommend the volume based on the strength of writer Steve Orlando. Lots of elements of the Supergirl TV show are shoehorned here into the comic, but despite that, Orlando crafts a tale that focuses on Supergirl’s relationships, her growth as a person, and her development as a hero, versus just punching stuff. The large-scale fights are the least interesting part of the book; the smaller challenges-such as problem-solving how to escape a super-trap, how to face an enemy who wears the face of your father-are where the story shines. And this volume firmly reestablishes Supergirl in the character’s best mold: sweet, aspirational, principled. The best version of the girl of steel in years. (
