    A new View of Supergirl

    Obviously a re-imagining of Supergirl. Some elements are appealing in the storyline. There is lots of room for character exploration as well as dealing with the inevitable supervillains as witnessed in this story. But some elements don't seem to flow coherently. I would read the story again.

    I was not really impressed with either the costume or the drawing of Supergirl. It's just not how I've always imagined/or seen her.

    I would like to see the next volume.

    Although Four a Divergent Collection was just received on July 1

    Although Four a Divergent Collection was just received on July 14th which makes it no longer a Four Series (for more information
    about the Divergent saga, look in a customer review for Allegiant), this title was received a year ago and I liked it, plus I've enjoyed the
    entire Divergent saga as well. This is the Customer Review Finale (as mentioned in some of the Percy Jackson books I made a review
    of) and I've saved the best for last. I will reverse and take back everything I've said mentioning in my 19 part Customer Review Saga,
    which makes this one its 20th, so you may never know if Trading Cards make a comeback since I mentioned that I thought to have
    outgrown them but I guess I was having second thoughts but even though the Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire guides still
    haven't shown up for preorder yet, one more Mega Evolution is revealed just now (to see more recently announced Mega Evolution
    forms, look in a customer review for Pokemon XY Pokedex Guide) and its owned by yes, a Pokemon Trainer named Steven whom
    apparently uses Mega Evolution enhanced Pokemon (well, one of them), but still, I have no plans yet for those guides since they aren't 
    shown up online yet.

    All this information may be irrelevant to this book but at least I was sharing with what I made in previous reviews. My last book that I've
    recently read before Four a Divergent Collection was Frozen the Junior Novelization, the reason why I haven't made a review for Four
    a Divergent Collection is that since its a prequel to Divergent and Insurgent, I'll treat Four a Divergent Collection the same way as the
    first two, no reviews for them unless if its Allegiant which is the only book in the saga that has a review. End of Reviews!

    Good, but perhaps not SUPER good.

    I enjoyed it, but something just seemed off. The story didn't really flow and it felt like very little was explained properly. The art was good and it was still fun to read, but it felt a bit rushed at times. I want to get to know the character, not just watch her punch things (which is still entertaining, don't get me wrong).
