Will the real Supergirl 30 please stand up?

Hmmm ...

I went to the comic book store today looking forward to buying this issue of Supergirl.

After all, it is the next part in the 'saving Thomas' storyline. This was the cover that was (and still is as of this writing) being shown on the DC comics website.

And, the last issue did end with something of a cliffhanger as Superman discovered Supergirl's lair with Resurrection Man and Dr. Luzano. The last panel is Superman telling Kara that Thomas has died.

To be honest, I was pretty excited to get *this* issue. It seemed like the title was gaining some momentum. This storyline showed a maturing Kara, a heroic Kara, and has had some interesting plot turns.

So how shocked was I instead to get this issue:

Seems like a rest issue. There is a new writer -Will Pfeifer. Ron Randall has been pencilling the book with Drew Johnson, but this issue seems to be all him. Doesn't seem to have anything to do with the 'saving Thomas' story.

I don't know if there is an acceptable reason for this switch. The issue not being finished is unacceptable. I suppose I should be grateful that it is not because this was some forced Final Crisis crossover.

Anyways, review tomorrow or the next day.
