razzatazz's Supergirl #12 - Inheritance review

A faint echo

In terms of the series thus far, I have felt that it has maintained a decent amount of momentum and it pacing has been decent enough.  There have been times when this hasn't been the case though, and this issue resembles more one of those times than the others.  The talk with Superman is well handled in a sense, though it felt kind of forced and illogical at times.  As with a lot of moments at DC it seems to assume to dominant position of Superman just because he is Superman.  This is well handled by the writers in the end though as Kara sets off alone.  This sets into the not-as-good part of this issue as Kara goes to find her spacecraft.  Her first threat is almost a plot device cliche, and the ending although not foreshadowed is not hard to guess (especially heading into the Zero month).  This issue was still better than average, but I feel like it could have taken more into the month off.

This dynamic is something that is really interesting because before t...
