Just a reminder that we get an extra dose of Supergirl this week in Superman/Batman #62. The DC Blog posted some preview pages last week and they are worth a peek (
Here is the official solicit:

When the inmates take over Arkham Asylum, it's a job for the World's Finest duo – Robin and Supergirl! Rafael Albuquerque (BLUE BEETLE) joins the series as regular artist for a story we could only call "Sidekicked!"
If the preview pages are an indication of the whole story, it looks like it will be a fun read as Supergirl and Robin remember their 'first adventure' together.
The issue starts off with Supergirl flying to Gotham to meet Tim for lunch.
Yep ... that's Linda Lang there. For those keeping track the Linda Lang sighting scoreboard reads as follows.
Superman/Batman Linda appearances: 2
Supergirl Linda appearances: 1
I do like that Linda is being 'recognized' in the DCU and look forward to seeing that aspect of Supergirl explored in her main title.
As the two eat lunch, the recall their first meeting.
Who knows if or where this fits in continuity. It looks like the plot takes them to Arkham to suppress a riot.
Certainly Supergirl looks like she is much more bubbly than you would expect her to be if this is an early Loeb-era Kara story.
Regardless, the Rafael Albuquerque art looks great with an expressive and cute Supergirl working next to the repressed Robin. I'll post a review some time this week.
