Cover: I liked the cover a lot.
Art: The art was gorgeous. I found myself stopping during the story many times admiring the art and backgrounds. Even the citizens of Metropolis were interesting.
Story/Plot: Supergirl is dealing with a lot of pain after what happened to New Krypton. I thought the emotions conveyed were appropriate. It has been, I believe, a month since the big war happened. She has already shed her tears. I am happy to see her relationship with Lana is continuing. The scenes with Superwoman spark my interest and I wonder what will become of her. Gangbuster and Dr Light's parts in the story were well done. I think the new direction will be good for Supergirl. I was not thrilled with who popped up at the end. AAARGH...oh well.
Characterization/Continuity: On characterization, I think Gates is capturing how I think an alien teenager who is trying to fit in would act. Very well done.
Best Part To Me: Supergirl's dreams...they are so bleak.
Worst Part To Me: The reveal at the end.
Overall: I would strongly recommend this issue especially to those who were thinking of picking up this title as it is now a good jumping on point. I am sure others will enjoy the end of the book. I will not let that destroy my rating.
