She’s super-strong. She can fly. She crash-landed on Earth in a rocket ship. But for Kara Danvers, winning the next track meet, celebrating her 16th birthday and surviving her latest mega-zit are her top concerns. And with the help of her best friends and her kinda-infuriating-but-totally-loving adoptive parents, she just might be able to put her troubling dreams–shattered glimpses of another world–behind her.
Until an earthquake shatters her small town of Midvale…and uncovers secrets about her past she thought would always stay buried.
Now Kara’s incredible powers are kicking into high gear, and people she trusted are revealing creepy ulterior motives. The time has come for her to choose between the world where she was born and the only world she’s ever known. Will she find a way to save her town and be super, or will she crash and burn?
Caldecott Honor and Eisner Award-winning writer Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer) and Eisner Award-nominated artist Joëlle Jones (Lady Killer) combine forces for this incredible coming-of-age tale! This is the Girl of Steel as you’ve never seen her before.
Introducing the first comic book I ever read from the DC universe! Supergirl, and it was great! I’m really loving the female power thats been coming out more and more lately. It’s like people are finally realizing that we exist. Yea..it only took a million years, but hey..at least we’re here…kind of…
Anyway, in this comic book, we are thrown into the life of Kara. Who, just like Superman, ended up in a small town in the country and somewhere in the desert. She has two loving parents who kept her secret, and is obviously super. Also, always posing in the sky like…always.
Apart from the continuous posing, which I found a little annoying, this was exciting and interesting. Not really sure if I’ll continue with her story. It really wasn’t as gripping as Ms Marvel, whose review is coming up soon, but still. Represent! I really love the art and the dialogue, and I’m grateful that it didn’t follow the boy obsessed and dependent on other people cliche.
Also, that ending…..I love that ending!
