Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes #28

I continue my review of Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes series by Mark Waid and Barry Kitson over on the Legion of Super-Bloggers site. This week I cover Supergirl and the Legion #28. Here is the link.
This issue ramps up the Dominator war very nicely. It always seems darkest before the dawn. The bulk of this issue shows just how terrible things are for Earth, the Legion, and the Wanderers. The team is in dire straits. And the cover shows that nicely with Supergirl looking somewhat fearfully at the drooling face of a Dominator soldier. Kara has been pretty unstoppable in this book. So this cover shows the level of the threat.

As I said, the bulk of the issue is showing how the Legion seems completely outmatched against the Dominator threat.

But it ends on a nice high note with the Legion's secret plans to turn the tables coming to fruition. Waid knows how to end a book on a positive cliffhanger.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for continuing to share, Anj... and thanks for sharing the interview with Mark Waid earlier
when you met up with him. There's alot to praise for him and the people he worked with as you
continue your reread of this arc, and I can't sing high enough praises of it!

And I totally agree, the gas pedal is jammed to the floor full tilt with where things are now.
Can't wait for next issue's reread!
