Like a dim-witted husband on a situation comedy, I forgot my own anniversary!
It was a little over five years ago that I started this blog as a site for all things Supergirl and it is hard for me to believe that I am still going strong.
I had no idea what I was doing when I started here and maybe I still don't. But I am having fun and I have made a bunch of friends. And that makes me happy.
As I have said many times before, I truly appreciate the folks who come here and comment. I love the discussion that happens on the site. And I love the palpable proof that others out there love Supergirl as much as I do. It is the community here that keeps me typing away. In many ways this is an anniversary for all of us! So raise a glass!
It has been an interesting year for Supergirl in comics. She has been settling in since the New 52 reboot. Over the year in Supergirl we saw Mike Johnson guide Kara onto a path of accepting Earth as her new home and defending it when needed. The mystery behind her origin, the tragic way her family sent her to Earth, so different from Superman's, was revealed. And she seemed ready to start the hero's journey.
And then H'El on Earth happened.
I won't reiterate my thoughts on that arc.
Outside of her own title, we also got a wonderful year of silliness and a more classic Superman feel in the all-ages Superman Family Adventures. We know that very soon she will be showing up in Smallville. And next month is the beginning of the Michael Alan Nelson era on the main book.
Anyways, I don't have any plans of slowing down. So on to the next year! Thanks again to everyone who comes here and joins in the conversation. Thanks to the creators who occasionally stop by and post.
Hope next year is a great one for Kara!
