Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This graphic novel does a great job at examining the life of Supergirl behind the shadow of Superman. There are many themes present that just about any person in the world can relate to with the problem's Supergirl faces. Originally I bought the novel to write an 8 page paper critiquing the novel with feminist theory, yet it turned out to be one of the best comics I have ever bought.

Format: Paperback
Great stories from current Superman and Supergirl DCU. Covers Superwoman's backstory and Supergirl's attempt to live a "normal life" as Lana Lang's neice Linda at a time when Earth people are paranoid about Kryptonians. Supergirl has a crisis in which two of her friends are in danger, Inspector Henderson from the Silver Banshee and Lana from a mysterious, deadly illness. Can Kara save her friends? What will she do if she is too late to save one of them?

Very entertaining read with an unexpected ghoulish/Halloween-ish tone throughout.
The three main arcs all feature interesting supernatural/creepy/horrific situations and villains.
Thoroughly enjoyed this trade with Supergirl and is definitely a one-up from the previous Supergirl: Friends & Fugitives before this installment.
Artwork is fine though a few panels have very strange depictions of the characters including a few weird facial expressions, too.

Collects Supergirl Annual # 1 (2009)(Sterling Gates)
Supergirl (vol. 5) # 48-50 (Gates, with Jake Black & Helen Slater)

Annual (Story 1): The story so far: Kryptonians are unpopular on Earth and most of them have relocated to New Krypton. In Superman: Codename Patriot Superman and Supergirl returned to Earth to capture the Kryptonian assassin. I haven't read Supergirl: Friends and Fugitives yet, but I assume that book explained why Supergirl decided to stay on Earth. Here, she's living with Lana Lang and she tries to take care of a bank robbery while in her Linda Lang disguise. Unfortunately, she's not the only Kryptonian there.
(Story 2): We learn the history of Superwoman, who won't stay dead.

Supergirl 48: The Silver Banshee is seeking seven magical family heirlooms.
Supergirl 49: Pt. 2 of the Silver Banshee story. Lana enters a cocoon...
Supergirl 50 (Story 1): ...and emerges as Insect Queen.
(Story 2): (Jake Black & Helen Slater): A six-page televised debate about Supergirl by Ron Troupe and Cat Grant.

This book is pretty good, but I can't quite give it 4 stars. It's not very important to the larger New Krypton story, unless you're interested in Superwoman. At the end of this, Supergirl decides to return to New Krypton.
