    Mariko Tamaki, author of the much celebrated This One Summer, works with artist Joelle Jones (Lady Killer) to fill out the origin story for Supergirl, something along the lines of American Alien by Max Landis, the aw shucks story of Clark Kent in Kansas. The point of this volume is to ...

    Finally a Supergirl book I can FULLY recommend. Why is that so hard to find? Supergirl is a lot about Kara trying to find her place. Nothing new there. The book even opens up with "Where do I start? Oh yeah, same old story." and it knows it can't reinvent the wheel so instead it po...

    An introduction to Supergirl. Kara is a typical teen girl living a normal life with a couple of best friends and parents who love her. She also has a secret... she has superpowers. This comic has a good story, interesting characters, and great artwork. A fun and entertaining read, ...

    I didn't have high expectations going in, but this was excellent! I want to know what happens next RIGHT NOW. ...

    I thought this was an alternate-universe Supergirl, but by the time I got to the end I decided it was perhaps a rebooted origin story (because it's very much an origin, with a few unresolved plots). But I'm still not sure. DC continuity is soooo horribly broken. Anywho, this is a ni...

    I've never been a fan of Supergirl - I don't actually like any of the Kryptonians - and yet, I enjoyed this origin story of the usually-bubbly blonde hero. She's not so bubbly in this one. She's a questioning sixteener, trying to figure out who she is and why her body feels weird an...

    Pretty good! Heard this one was really good, so I ordered the trade as soon as I saw it on the previews and I'm glad I did! So the story is origin story of sorts for Kara, since DC feels the need to reset the origins of Superman related characters every few years. This one has Kara gro...

    Petition for Mariko Tamaki to write all the comics and Joelle Jones to draw all the comics. Fantastic through and through. ...

    I really wanted to like this. I love Tamaki?s Hulk book and Joelle Jones? art is always a gift. However, I just couldn?t connect to anyone in this book. The tone just didn?t work for me. I couldn?t get attached to Kara?s plight or her grief. The dialogue for the teenage...

    Although the character has been around for six decades in comics and other media, the mainstream became very aware of who Kara Zor-El was in TV?s Supergirl, which first aired in 2015. The show took its time to find its footing, but has managed to give the superheroine her own identit...

    The original Supergirl was invented in the early 60s. It was still the time of silly, light stories, and her stories, set in an orphanage were light humor, and odd adventures, such as her dressing up like a fairy godmother to entertain kids, or her boring a hole through the earth so pe...

    Die beste Supergirl-Origin-Geschichte aller Zeiten! Wir erleben Kara als Teenager, der sich fremd in seiner Umgebung (=auf der Erde) fhlt, was fr Teenager nichts ungewhnliches ist; nur das Kara eben tatschlich fremd ist, weil sie von Krypton kommt, also ein waschechter Alie...

    I never liked Supergirl. Not before 'Supergirl: Being Super', anyway. I always saw her as nothing more than Superman's distaff counterpart - young, pretty, blonde, something for heterosexual Superman fanboys to ogle at while the power fantasy they can imagine themselves as was being...

    This is Kara and her life with her friends. Focused on friendship and family from start to end. It's fun, emotional and interesting to keep turning the page. Loved my time with this story. ...

    Really fun origin story?great writing and art! Check out my full review at Forever Young Adult. ...

    Supergirl Earth One. World: Fantastic art that's expressive and full of character. This is a character story and the art really helped bring the emotions to the reader. The world building is also fantastic. Being non canon the creative team had a lot more leeway to play with this w...

    Yes to all of it. The illustrations, the text, the storyline. Yes to it all. Kara has super powers and was "adopted" by her family who knows of her abilities and keeps her pod hidden in the barn. She's a runner on the track team but has to keep her speed and strength in check. Read...

    The Supergirl story we deserve... Kara Danvers is an average teenage girl with a very extraordinary secret: she has unexplained, superhuman physical abilities and only a foggy memory of a childhood trauma. She was adopted by Jeremiah and Eliza Danvers out in the small town of Midval...

    A supergirl book that is actually good?? It's more likely than you think. I actually really enjoy Supergirl, but most of her solo series or featured stories tend to be, well...what's the nice way of saying "horribly written?" This is a simple origin comic introducing Kara to Reb...

    I'm not a huge fan of superhero comics, but I adore the artists for this comic and DAMN. I am so glad I read this! I love Dolly, and think we may be the same person (as this panel shows ;) ) : But overall this comic was really amazing. The story was clear, interesting, and has me h...

    There aren't many Superfamily stories that interest me but I'll read anything Mariko Tamaki is working on. This is Supergirl's origin story, and it's very similar to the Clark Kent Superman origin story but Tamaki's excellent understanding of characters and ear for dialogue make this m...

    The story was pretty stereotypical but was saved from being dull by the wonderful characters. Every one was complex and interesting and real, especially Kara?s best friends and her dad. Plus there was an LGBT character - SPOILER - who didn?t suffer a horrible fate. Hooray! END SPOI...

    4 1/2. Probably my favorite comic that I?ve read in a while - certainly of the superhero variety. I?ve very little experience with any of the Supers, at least in book form, but it was really fun and I look forward to more. ...

    I mean, I would read more of these. ...

    Yet another Supergirl reboot disappoints. Super angsty narration attempts to remind us that Kara is a just teenager while the generic comic book plot with a secret underground headquarters/research lab reminds us that we really don't really need this sort of disposable story. ...

    Mariko Tamaki is a killer writer, and when she writes a coming of age story she knocks it out of the park. I loved this, this is my first Supergirl story and I couldn't have picked a better one to read. I'll make this a more detailed review after release, but trust me, if you won't wan...

    I had not read any Supergirl books going into this, but I'm familiar with the basics of her story and other characters and things (Lexcorp, etc.) through TV, movies, and Superman. I like the art and the voice in this one. I really enjoyed the teen angst and friendship angle. Kara is ju...

    I have fallen in love with this comic book. This version of Kara Zor-El is fresh, fun, imaginative and thrilling. The plot tastes like a version of Smallville for Supergirl, but the characters (Kara's friends and parents) are simply so beautifuly depicted, that the book becomes much mo...

    I'll admit, I come to Supergirl through the TV show, not through the comics, so while I have some familiarity with the story, there's a lot of background that I'm missing. That said, it didn't hamper my enjoyment in the slightest. This version of Supergirl is fantastic. I love her a...

    Heck yeah! I was never really interested in Superman, and my only real experience with Supergirl was the movie from 1984 (though I was OBSESSED with it in first grade). I was wondering whether or not I'd really dig this beyond its having two of my favorite creators. But the wonderte...

    Finally a Supergirl book I can FULLY recommend. Why is that so hard to find? Supergirl is a lot about Kara trying to find her place. Nothing new there. The book even opens up with "Where do I start? Oh yeah, same old story." and it knows it can't reinvent the wheel so instead it po...

    An introduction to Supergirl. Kara is a typical teen girl living a normal life with a couple of best friends and parents who love her. She also has a secret... she has superpowers. This comic has a good story, interesting characters, and great artwork. A fun and entertaining read, ...

    I didn't have high expectations going in, but this was excellent! I want to know what happens next RIGHT NOW. ...

    I thought this was an alternate-universe Supergirl, but by the time I got to the end I decided it was perhaps a rebooted origin story (because it's very much an origin, with a few unresolved plots). But I'm still not sure. DC continuity is soooo horribly broken. Anywho, this is a ni...

    I've never been a fan of Supergirl - I don't actually like any of the Kryptonians - and yet, I enjoyed this origin story of the usually-bubbly blonde hero. She's not so bubbly in this one. She's a questioning sixteener, trying to figure out who she is and why her body feels weird an...

    Pretty good! Heard this one was really good, so I ordered the trade as soon as I saw it on the previews and I'm glad I did! So the story is origin story of sorts for Kara, since DC feels the need to reset the origins of Superman related characters every few years. This one has Kara gro...

    Petition for Mariko Tamaki to write all the comics and Joelle Jones to draw all the comics. Fantastic through and through. ...

    I really wanted to like this. I love Tamaki?s Hulk book and Joelle Jones? art is always a gift. However, I just couldn?t connect to anyone in this book. The tone just didn?t work for me. I couldn?t get attached to Kara?s plight or her grief. The dialogue for the teenage...

    Although the character has been around for six decades in comics and other media, the mainstream became very aware of who Kara Zor-El was in TV?s Supergirl, which first aired in 2015. The show took its time to find its footing, but has managed to give the superheroine her own identit...

    The original Supergirl was invented in the early 60s. It was still the time of silly, light stories, and her stories, set in an orphanage were light humor, and odd adventures, such as her dressing up like a fairy godmother to entertain kids, or her boring a hole through the earth so pe...

    Die beste Supergirl-Origin-Geschichte aller Zeiten! Wir erleben Kara als Teenager, der sich fremd in seiner Umgebung (=auf der Erde) fhlt, was fr Teenager nichts ungewhnliches ist; nur das Kara eben tatschlich fremd ist, weil sie von Krypton kommt, also ein waschechter Alie...

    I never liked Supergirl. Not before 'Supergirl: Being Super', anyway. I always saw her as nothing more than Superman's distaff counterpart - young, pretty, blonde, something for heterosexual Superman fanboys to ogle at while the power fantasy they can imagine themselves as was being...

    This is Kara and her life with her friends. Focused on friendship and family from start to end. It's fun, emotional and interesting to keep turning the page. Loved my time with this story. ...

    Really fun origin story?great writing and art! Check out my full review at Forever Young Adult. ...

    Supergirl Earth One. World: Fantastic art that's expressive and full of character. This is a character story and the art really helped bring the emotions to the reader. The world building is also fantastic. Being non canon the creative team had a lot more leeway to play with this w...

    Yes to all of it. The illustrations, the text, the storyline. Yes to it all. Kara has super powers and was "adopted" by her family who knows of her abilities and keeps her pod hidden in the barn. She's a runner on the track team but has to keep her speed and strength in check. Read...

    The Supergirl story we deserve... Kara Danvers is an average teenage girl with a very extraordinary secret: she has unexplained, superhuman physical abilities and only a foggy memory of a childhood trauma. She was adopted by Jeremiah and Eliza Danvers out in the small town of Midval...

    A supergirl book that is actually good?? It's more likely than you think. I actually really enjoy Supergirl, but most of her solo series or featured stories tend to be, well...what's the nice way of saying "horribly written?" This is a simple origin comic introducing Kara to Reb...

    I'm not a huge fan of superhero comics, but I adore the artists for this comic and DAMN. I am so glad I read this! I love Dolly, and think we may be the same person (as this panel shows ;) ) : But overall this comic was really amazing. The story was clear, interesting, and has me h...

    There aren't many Superfamily stories that interest me but I'll read anything Mariko Tamaki is working on. This is Supergirl's origin story, and it's very similar to the Clark Kent Superman origin story but Tamaki's excellent understanding of characters and ear for dialogue make this m...

    The story was pretty stereotypical but was saved from being dull by the wonderful characters. Every one was complex and interesting and real, especially Kara?s best friends and her dad. Plus there was an LGBT character - SPOILER - who didn?t suffer a horrible fate. Hooray! END SPOI...

    4 1/2. Probably my favorite comic that I?ve read in a while - certainly of the superhero variety. I?ve very little experience with any of the Supers, at least in book form, but it was really fun and I look forward to more. ...

    I mean, I would read more of these. ...

    Yet another Supergirl reboot disappoints. Super angsty narration attempts to remind us that Kara is a just teenager while the generic comic book plot with a secret underground headquarters/research lab reminds us that we really don't really need this sort of disposable story. ...

    Mariko Tamaki is a killer writer, and when she writes a coming of age story she knocks it out of the park. I loved this, this is my first Supergirl story and I couldn't have picked a better one to read. I'll make this a more detailed review after release, but trust me, if you won't wan...

    Mariko Tamaki is a killer writer, and when she writes a coming of age story she knocks it out of the park. I loved this, this is my first Supergirl story and I couldn't have picked a better one to read. I'll make this a more detailed review after release, but trust me, if you won't wan...

    I had not read any Supergirl books going into this, but I'm familiar with the basics of her story and other characters and things (Lexcorp, etc.) through TV, movies, and Superman. I like the art and the voice in this one. I really enjoyed the teen angst and friendship angle. Kara is ju...

    I have fallen in love with this comic book. This version of Kara Zor-El is fresh, fun, imaginative and thrilling. The plot tastes like a version of Smallville for Supergirl, but the characters (Kara's friends and parents) are simply so beautifuly depicted, that the book becomes much mo...

    I'll admit, I come to Supergirl through the TV show, not through the comics, so while I have some familiarity with the story, there's a lot of background that I'm missing. That said, it didn't hamper my enjoyment in the slightest. This version of Supergirl is fantastic. I love her a...

    Mariko Tamaki, author of the much celebrated This One Summer, works with artist Joelle Jones (Lady Killer) to fill out the origin story for Supergirl, something along the lines of American Alien by Max Landis, the aw shucks story of Clark Kent in Kansas. The point of this volume is to ...

    Finally a Supergirl book I can FULLY recommend. Why is that so hard to find? Supergirl is a lot about Kara trying to find her place. Nothing new there. The book even opens up with "Where do I start? Oh yeah, same old story." and it knows it can't reinvent the wheel so instead it po...

    I didn't have high expectations going in, but this was excellent! I want to know what happens next RIGHT NOW. ...

    I thought this was an alternate-universe Supergirl, but by the time I got to the end I decided it was perhaps a rebooted origin story (because it's very much an origin, with a few unresolved plots). But I'm still not sure. DC continuity is soooo horribly broken. Anywho, this is a ni...

    Pretty good! Heard this one was really good, so I ordered the trade as soon as I saw it on the previews and I'm glad I did! So the story is origin story of sorts for Kara, since DC feels the need to reset the origins of Superman related characters every few years. This one has Kara gro...

    I really wanted to like this. I love Tamaki?s Hulk book and Joelle Jones? art is always a gift. However, I just couldn?t connect to anyone in this book. The tone just didn?t work for me. I couldn?t get attached to Kara?s plight or her grief. The dialogue for the teenage...

    Although the character has been around for six decades in comics and other media, the mainstream became very aware of who Kara Zor-El was in TV?s Supergirl, which first aired in 2015. The show took its time to find its footing, but has managed to give the superheroine her own identit...

    The original Supergirl was invented in the early 60s. It was still the time of silly, light stories, and her stories, set in an orphanage were light humor, and odd adventures, such as her dressing up like a fairy godmother to entertain kids, or her boring a hole through the earth so pe...

    Yes to all of it. The illustrations, the text, the storyline. Yes to it all. Kara has super powers and was "adopted" by her family who knows of her abilities and keeps her pod hidden in the barn. She's a runner on the track team but has to keep her speed and strength in check. Read...

    The story was pretty stereotypical but was saved from being dull by the wonderful characters. Every one was complex and interesting and real, especially Kara?s best friends and her dad. Plus there was an LGBT character - SPOILER - who didn?t suffer a horrible fate. Hooray! END SPOI...

    4 1/2. Probably my favorite comic that I?ve read in a while - certainly of the superhero variety. I?ve very little experience with any of the Supers, at least in book form, but it was really fun and I look forward to more. ...

    I mean, I would read more of these. ...

    Yet another Supergirl reboot disappoints. Super angsty narration attempts to remind us that Kara is a just teenager while the generic comic book plot with a secret underground headquarters/research lab reminds us that we really don't really need this sort of disposable story. ...

    Mariko Tamaki, author of the much celebrated This One Summer, works with artist Joelle Jones (Lady Killer) to fill out the origin story for Supergirl, something along the lines of American Alien by Max Landis, the aw shucks story of Clark Kent in Kansas. The point of this volume is to ...

    Finally a Supergirl book I can FULLY recommend. Why is that so hard to find? Supergirl is a lot about Kara trying to find her place. Nothing new there. The book even opens up with "Where do I start? Oh yeah, same old story." and it knows it can't reinvent the wheel so instead it po...

    An introduction to Supergirl. Kara is a typical teen girl living a normal life with a couple of best friends and parents who love her. She also has a secret... she has superpowers. This comic has a good story, interesting characters, and great artwork. A fun and entertaining read, ...

    I didn't have high expectations going in, but this was excellent! I want to know what happens next RIGHT NOW. ...

    I thought this was an alternate-universe Supergirl, but by the time I got to the end I decided it was perhaps a rebooted origin story (because it's very much an origin, with a few unresolved plots). But I'm still not sure. DC continuity is soooo horribly broken. Anywho, this is a ni...

    I've never been a fan of Supergirl - I don't actually like any of the Kryptonians - and yet, I enjoyed this origin story of the usually-bubbly blonde hero. She's not so bubbly in this one. She's a questioning sixteener, trying to figure out who she is and why her body feels weird an...

    Pretty good! Heard this one was really good, so I ordered the trade as soon as I saw it on the previews and I'm glad I did! So the story is origin story of sorts for Kara, since DC feels the need to reset the origins of Superman related characters every few years. This one has Kara gro...

    Petition for Mariko Tamaki to write all the comics and Joelle Jones to draw all the comics. Fantastic through and through. ...

    I really wanted to like this. I love Tamaki?s Hulk book and Joelle Jones? art is always a gift. However, I just couldn?t connect to anyone in this book. The tone just didn?t work for me. I couldn?t get attached to Kara?s plight or her grief. The dialogue for the teenage...

    Although the character has been around for six decades in comics and other media, the mainstream became very aware of who Kara Zor-El was in TV?s Supergirl, which first aired in 2015. The show took its time to find its footing, but has managed to give the superheroine her own identit...

    The original Supergirl was invented in the early 60s. It was still the time of silly, light stories, and her stories, set in an orphanage were light humor, and odd adventures, such as her dressing up like a fairy godmother to entertain kids, or her boring a hole through the earth so pe...

    Die beste Supergirl-Origin-Geschichte aller Zeiten! Wir erleben Kara als Teenager, der sich fremd in seiner Umgebung (=auf der Erde) fhlt, was fr Teenager nichts ungewhnliches ist; nur das Kara eben tatschlich fremd ist, weil sie von Krypton kommt, also ein waschechter Alie...

    I never liked Supergirl. Not before 'Supergirl: Being Super', anyway. I always saw her as nothing more than Superman's distaff counterpart - young, pretty, blonde, something for heterosexual Superman fanboys to ogle at while the power fantasy they can imagine themselves as was being...

    This is Kara and her life with her friends. Focused on friendship and family from start to end. It's fun, emotional and interesting to keep turning the page. Loved my time with this story. ...

    Really fun origin story?great writing and art! Check out my full review at Forever Young Adult. ...

    Yes to all of it. The illustrations, the text, the storyline. Yes to it all. Kara has super powers and was "adopted" by her family who knows of her abilities and keeps her pod hidden in the barn. She's a runner on the track team but has to keep her speed and strength in check. Read...
