Albert Avilla Review: Supergirl #0
Reviewed by Albert Avilla
Writers: Michael Green & Mike Johnson
Artist: Mahmud Asrar
The End of the Beginning (Spoilers)
Zor-El is conducting experiments on his daughter. He is preparing her for her escape from Krypton. He is also trying to protect Argo City from the coming Apocalypse. This is all being done in secret; apparently, it's against the rules to save the planet. Superboy shows up to tell Alura that it is not too late to say goodbye to Kara. Alura tries to stop Zor-El, but she is too late. Kara is sent on her journey to Earth.
Yawn! This is an emotional story of a father's struggle to save his daughter. Exactly, what I did not expect from the big #0 month of the New 52. Is this Lifetime or DC Comics?
The art did not catch the eye. The characters looked deformed in some of the panels. The backgrounds were bland and plain; it did not give that science fiction vibe that I expect from stories about Krypton.
I rate Supergirl #0 Read it in the Store. (Al-O-Meter #4 of 5 Ranking)
