Happy Halloween!



This "Supergirl as Monster" moment, as drawn by Art Saaf, is from the 1972 series Supergirl #8. Not only does she have hair like a real medusa in the issue, but she has the petrifying gaze too!

Hope everyone has a happy and fun-filled Halloween!

I think Byrne creating ?matrix' and calling IT 'Supergirl' was much more frighting..

HAPPY HOLLOWEEN!

Man 2 of my all time fave characters featured here! (What with the first being our Supergirl of course and the second being my all time fave monster the classical Greek snaky haired/stone glance inducing Gorgon Medusa!!! :D)

Thanks for the post.

No, it isn't the Creature Commandos.

It is Supergirl who gets possessed by Medusa and at one point petrifies a couple of JLA members.

I thought of doing a full review. Maybe I should have.

Ahhh Art Saaf, now there was an ARTIST....never were Supergirl's legs longer and more shapely.th' man had talent.
Alas though, in terms of writing, the 1972 solo book was a catastrophe, Robert Kanigher's stilted dialogue, Cary Bates rushed "I-wrote-this-before-sunday-dinner" underdeveloped pacing....and the editor (who I think was Dorothy Woolfol) apparently decided that Supergirl was a romance book with a cape....hence the new undying cookie-cutter BF in every issue.
The decline in the quality of the writing from the solo feature in Adventure Comics is instantly apparent even to the casual reader.
I date the character's long heartbreaking decline to this book.
But again let me stress, Art Saaf Bob Oksner...preemo artists they at least gave their all for Kousin Kara.

Thanks for the post.

I will have to review his legs, but I always felt that Saaf drew one of the cuter Supergirls.
