Supergirl Comic Box Commentary Is Four!



April 29, 2012 marked my four year anniversary for Supergirl Comic Box Commentary (hence the montage of Supergirl #4's above).

Four years!!

It always amazes me when another anniversary for this blog comes around because when I began I didn't know how long I would be doing this. In fact, this anniversary sneaked up on me hence the post one day late.

I have said it before on other anniversary posts that I didn't know what to expect when I started this site. And I certainly didn't know what I was doing. But there is no denying that I am happy with what it has become.

At least in my head, this place is the following:

1) A site where Supergirl fans can come to talk about all things Supergirl - comics, commissions, toys, animation, etc.

2) A place for me to wax poetic about Supergirl in comics, especially her past incarnations, thumbing through the back issue box, and reviewing her history

3) Somewhere else on the web for Superman and Legion fans to stop by and talk about those characters

None of those things would matter without the folks who stop by here. So I really want to express my gratitude for everybody who stops by, reads my ramblings, and even takes the time to comment. I also want to thank all the Supergirl creators who have stopped by over the years. Without the Supergirl fandom, this place wouldn't exist.

As for Supergirl, it's been a crazy 12 months for Kara.

We saw the end of the second incarnation ending in August and the reboot DCnU Supergirl start up. The new title has been doing well as a new origin of Supergirl is slowly unfolding before our eyes. Prior to the reboot, Supergirl was the muscle in the Justice League. She played a role in the last 2 pre-reboot Superman arcs: Reign of Doomsday and Grounded. We even saw both the pre-Crisis Supergirl and the Matrix Supergirl one last time in the DCU:Legacies book.

We have seen an new animated Supergirl appear in the DCNation cartoon block. The Super Best Friends Forever shorts are sooo much fun.

And coming up we have Supergirl appearing in the all ages Superman Family Adventures.

Hopefully, this hot streak for Supergirl (which started when Gates/Igle took over and Cosmic came out soon after) will continue throughout the next 12 months!

Anyways, thanks again for everybody who comes by and visits.
