Supergirl #49 is not due ot be released for another two weeks. And this isn't just any issue. This is purportedly the issue in which Lana Lang dies. With such a spoiler-rich theme, DC and the creators have been pretty tight-lipped. Almost no advance hints have been released other than the fact that 'Lana meets her fate'.
So I was happy to get some preview pages over on Matt Camp's blog. Sure, not much is revealed (I think the first 2 pages had been released already) but anything is better than nothing. Here is the link:
Camp includes another page ... this one of Supergirl and Inspector Henderson on the roof of the Police Headquarters. Hmmm ... she sure doesn't look Banshee'd out. So she must shrug off that possession pretty quickly.
I continue to think that Camp draws a very clean and vibrant Supergirl. It is hard for me to elucidate what it is about his style that impresses me. Can it be both detailed and economical at the same time? Those middle four panels here are great, especially the close-up of Supergirl's face. Powerful.
Matt Camp also designed the look of the Super-banshee. As an added bonus, here is a 'design piece' of the Super-banshee that I got a chance to peek at. It is my honor to share it with you all.
I can't wait for the issue. And I look forward to seeing more of Camp's art ... maybe in another Supergirl issue when Jamal needs a rest.
