We have finished the Michael Alan Nelson era on Supergirl. We have to get through Scott Lobdell's Krypton Returns. But then we get Tony Bedard and Yildiray Cinar on the title. And from the sounds of it, Supergirl will be more optimistic and happy.
What a great picture. Supergirl smiling, almost laughing, as she shatters the chains around her. Now there is part of me that thinks of this as some form of catharsis, Kara shedding the horror and darkness and anger and angst that has bound her and held her back in the new 52.
I mean, have we seen Supergirl look like this at any time during the first 2 years of her title? Maybe when she ate pizza?
Of course she is happier now!
Now I know I am thinking way to metatextually. My guess is Cinar was just riffing of the famous 'Superman snapping chains' motif. But even Superman doesn't look as joyous as Supergirl is above. That just feels like Supergirl.
December and Supergirl #26 can't come soon enough!
