duo_forbidden's Supergirl #63 - Good Looking Corpse, Part Four review

"...It's time the masks finally came off."

Synopsis: Alexander's true identity is revealed.

What's Good?

With Nick Spencer out of the picture for the past issues, James Peaty has a lot of ground to cover after the last issue. Thankfully, things get back on track somewhat. But besides Kara, Damian and Lois Lane have their moments as well. The true appearance of Alexander was someone totally unexpected. When this story arc first started, I'd figured that Alexander was turning out to be a new foe (which he is technically speaking), but when putting all the pieces all together, it actually makes sense on who he really is.

For those who don't know what I mean:

Bernard Chang's artwork is still vibrant as ever.

What's Bad?

While the development is better than the last issues, I can't help to notice how short this issue was. Other than Alex's small origin story and the big reveal at the end, nothing else happened.

Overall: With this new development, maybe this could be the right set up for a decent conclusion.

I really hate this non-continuity thing. i mean, she's dark Super-Girl in the Justice League so...what...she gets better when she's in her own series? I'm confused....

The Justice League of America issues with her turning "evil" then turning back only to be captured by Doomsday, is most likely after this storyline possibly. They'll probably mention it later on after the Reign of Doomsday story is over.

    understandable but not any better 0

     Cover For a change with this new creative team’s cover art I actually like this art for the cover. I am not a big fan of Supergirl’s short hair but at least the art is good. Story Supergirl has to save her friends Miss Martian, Robin, and Blue Bettle. But to save them she has to go against Alex a new villain.   Best Part I did like that I actually understood what was going on in this issue unlike the previous issues in this story arc and new creative team. Seeing Supergirl do anything...
