Thank you to DC Comics for sending me a copy of this graphic novel/comic via Netgalley for an honest review.
A part of DC Universe: Rebirth!
Supergirl moves to National City! As Kara Danvers, average American teenager and high school student, Supergirl must balance her life as a superhero with her new life on Earth. But some demons from her Kryptonian past are coming back to haunt her, and Kara will find herself face-to-face with her father: the sinister Cyborg Superman!
I enjoyed Kara’s character a lot more than I first anticipated. As someone who is new to reading DC comics, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this. I liked that Kara was in touch with both her superhero and human side, how she struggles to deal with the cyborg supermen threatening Earth and also trying to fit in with those around her. Furthermore, I was thankful that this volume ended wholly rather than on a massive cliffhanger, it obviously left me with wanting more but I’m not tearing my hair out in need of the next volume. Open ending’s are good, and I appreciate them a lot so thank you Steve. I’m very much hoping that volume two will give us even more background to Kara’s story and her life on Krypton.
The illustrations are striking, vibrant, and fitting with the storyline.
I’m looking forward to reading more Supergirl comics as well as more from other DC characters, many thanks to DC for sending me this copy!
