Supergirl (2005) #52


I didn’t read the previous issue in the crossover—even though the notice tells the reader to stop and go read it first (I figured that issue would instruct me to read something else and I can only handle so much of this inane crossover).

Let’s see… from here I can tell all three villains from Superman II are back (new costumes, of course), Lex Luthor is betraying Brainiac (shocker) and Supergirl and Brainiac 5 got together some time in the future. Or the past. I never finished reading that Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes book; I’m unsure if it’s in continuity.

Gates tries really hard for his flirting between Supergirl and Brainiac 5 and it’s just a complete disaster. All of it’s in narration boxes, which is a terrible idea.

Rodriguez’s art is generally decent, if too polished. He also draws an inappropriately short skirt on Supergirl.
