This last week has been a brutal work week for me which means elegant new material may be a little light this week. Today I will admit feels like filler.
And what could be sunnier than this Joe Staton commission of Supergirl I got 7 years ago! Hard to believe I haven't posted this one before.
Staton definitely has a 'cartoony' style which works well on some books. He has had a hand drawing some of my personal favorites including the first appearance of Huntress and some of the first solo Power Girl stories. He also drew the New Doom Patrol issues of Showcase, bringing one of my favorite teams back. And he even drew my beloved Legion book for a bit, introducing the League of Super-Assasins and Blok.
Anyways, this commission of Supergirl really has a Silver Age feel to it. This looks like a very young Kara, maybe just bursting from her rocket landing on Earth. And that bright feeling is just what I needed right now.
Hopefully, the days will turn brighter too!
