Supergirl 45 (November 2009)
And now it’s in the middle of another crossover… I love it when comic book publishers are hostile to casual readers.
Umm. Rucka co-writes here. Not sure what contributions he made.
From what I can tell, the world now knows Sam Lane is alive and he’s a hero and the Kryptonians (Superman included?) are the villains.
Does anyone else remember the nineties, when you had to read every Superman title just to understand what was going on? It’s very similar. Except they don’t have flashy hologram covers. The nineties stuff was probably a little better in some ways; at least it was the first time they’d done it in that manner.
Again, Sibal’s inks hurt Igle’s pencils. Especially on Kara’s cat.
Gates gets in a good scene with Lana Lang and almost a good one with Lois. The Lois one is undercooked.
Unfortunately, getting through this issue is trying.
