Supergirl Vol. 1: Last Daughter of Krypton (The New 52) 3.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 9 reviews.

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.

Strong characterization. A Supergirl who is quite interesting, and beautiful artwork.

A quality reimagining of this character that plays off the age old alien in a strange land premise and does it very well. Supergirl is a complete character and treated with respect in this book. No longer the flakey little brat that she has been too often she is given botrh depth and quality villains in this book and it all works well. The character design leaves a lot to be desired. Her costume is poorly imagined and ill fitting and the cheesy cape and strappy boots don't work at all but all that is forgiven because of the excellent writing and the quality of the writing.

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).

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.
