The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl (1982-) #1

Just want to say that this run is a lot of fun. Some interesting drama, some strange tales, and decent action. In my opinion the best stuff is in the beginning through her arc with The Gang. In these early issues she has some interesting moments dealing with issues analogous to work life balance and impostor syndrome. They aren’t fully explored but it was interesting seeing just how they decided to talk about these things back in the 1980s. Unfortunately the ending of the run kinda falls apart. The evil organization, The Society, just kinda disappears. Maybe it was passed on to another series, but it seems like they were planning to continue and had to stop… If you read Crisis on Infinite Earths you will know why.

Still, good art, fun characters, and the Louis Lane backup issues are cute. Just know there are a lot of threads left hanging in the end.

… I also really wonder what happened to the Laura Danvers clone…
