I have been excited about this comic since first hearing about it. Written by Landry Walker and drawn by Eric Jones, it should be a great comic for tweeners. And, of course, it will introduce the character of Supergirl to a new generation of devotees.
We have already learned that in this comic her secret identity will be Linda Lee. We already have heard that Streaky will show up. I think I read that Comet the Super-horse may also appear. And now that dialogue has been added to the preview, a reporter asks her if she is Superman's emergency secret weapon. All of that harkens back to a simpler time, a more innocent time for Kara.
The previewed pages look like her origin will be covered in short order, with her rocket crash landing on page 1.
Here is my favorite panel from page 5. Supergirl sure looks cute and fun. I like the pleated red dress look and the blue leggings make a nice touch of modesty for a 13 year old girl. I am probably dating myself, but when I saw this panel I immediately thought about this ...
Okay, I watched Bewitched in reruns in the afternoon. I'm not that old. Still, it was such an immediate conenction for me I wonder if it was intentional. Bewitched was certainly fun in a slapstick 70s sort of way so any feelings of nostalgia for the show I get is a positive.
Anyways, December certainly is a great month for Supergirl fans and this series' introduction is a big part of it.
