It's not often these days that a comic book can make it to issue #50. We're constantly seeing comics canceled or 'relaunched.' For Supergirl, it's almost hard to believe she's only at issue 50. That means this version of Kara that we've come to know has only had a series for just over four years.
DC announced yesterday that they will be using some Michael Turner art for the milestone fiftieth issue. I'm sure some will feel this is a cheap ploy against Turner but as DC puts it, let's honor the man that helped make Kara who she is today. It's a beautiful piece and we should remember what Turner contributed to the field. "Gone but not forgotten" they say. While this may not be "new" art, I do think it's a fitting cover for Supergirl's 50th issue. It should be something spectacular.
How do you feel about this image? How do you feel about Turner's art being used? Will you be picking this issue up?
