What are your thoughts on the series?
Personally I quite liked it at the beginning. The stories by Steve Orlando and the quirkiness of Brian Ching’s art made it stand out from other Supergirl books. I was never a big fan of the Zor-El Cyborg Superman but aside from that I quite enjoyed it.
Robson Rocha did a good job as well, but despite the fact that I would usually have hated art like Ching’s, I have to say I missed him when he left. The Jamal Campbell art in issue 20 was delightful and I’ve always loved Kevin Maguire’s art.
When Orlando left and the book was taken over by Marc Andreyko it got a much closer connection to what was happening in Superman. It still managed to keep its own tone and I think we got some interesting stories, but I’m not sure this was the right direction for the book. It lost some of the innocence that the Orlando issues had and tying the book that much into various crossovers and such made it a less accessible book for any fans of the tv show that might have been interested to try out the comic.
To me though, the Infected storyline was what completely killed the book. Sure, it could have been an interesting look into a darker Supergirl but that has not only been done way too many times, this time it also dragged on for way too long.
I’m hoping we’ll get to see another take on the character soon and that it won’t be years before the next series.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on the series.
