The art is very cartoon-y, looking more manga inspired than Kirby-inspired. Kara gets an outfit and artist that are less geared towards 14 year old boys. The editors clearly are trying to attract girls to this character.
If you are planning to read Superman Reborn in the near future, you must read that prior to reading Supergirl Vol. 2. The following issues from Supergirl include full, and complete spoilers from the graphic novel, “Superman Reborn.” That being said, this review is spoiler-free.
I thoroughly enjoyed these issues of Supergirl, more so than the last, for three reasons. Hear me out.
#1 The team-up with Batgirl:
The team-up with Batgirl, I believe, is what DC’s Rebirth is all about. Fixing relationships, making things how they were supposed to be— Batgirl and Supergirl are an iconic duo. And rebirth did it right by pairing the two together in these issues.
#2 This serves as— just as good as any— a jumping point to hop on to this series.
#3 Most importantly: If you know Batgirl, you know she’s all about logic. Making safe, pre-planned decisions. What makes Supergirl stand out amongst the rest, wasn’t her super strength, x-ray vision, or being faster than a speeding bullet— but for the mere reason that she believes in hope, and putting her life on the line, against the odds, to save her friends. And she did just that in these issues.
Conclusion: Supergirl proves in this issue that she is deserving of the S on her chest. She proves again and again to be a symbol of hope.
“It’s not an S. On my world, it means hope.”
This volume continues with the rebirthing of Supergirl and the morphing of her setting as close to the TV show as they can get away with – see if you can spot her TV show sister in one panel.
It also sees a Batgirl team-up and a new “World’s Finest” team established as they share an adventure in the Phantom Zone, though not any Phantom Zone that I remember seeing before. We also get a Superman Family team-up, including dinner with Lois and Jon, as the fall-out from “Superman Reborn” reaches National City.
There is a Kryptonian theme running through the stories here, which are linked by Kryptonian technology getting into the hands of people that shouldn’t be messing with things they don’t understand, as the saying goes.
Unfortunately (for me, anyway) the artwork if the wrong end of the cartoony spectrum, making many scenes confusing, and the scripting seems disjointed in too many places, if not outright vague, leading to my eyes glazing over as I read through and a complete lack of interest in the story.
I have read two other books with cartoony art prior to this, and yet they were enjoyable because the art complemented the scripting, story and characters; whereas here the art and scripting failed to complement each other (other than they both distracted me from the story and characters) and made this an unpleasant book to read. The team has managed to make this less interesting than the New 52 version; no mean feat.
