Supergirl: Being Super (Supergirl: Being Super #1-4) Reviews
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 Rebirth and to new readers. What sets it apart from a sea of other Supergirl origin stories is that this isn't the bubbly, lighthearted Kara we're used to - instead, this Kara is quite somber and is dealing with the sudden de ...more
This is such a great retelling of Kara's origin story. Perfect YA situations. The ending wasn't as strong as the rest of the book, but overall, an incredibly solid look at Kara.
(FYI: doesn't match the current TV show. But I don't think TV show fans will be incredibly disappointed.)
Kara is in the thick of adolescent growing pangs, unsure of her place in the world, like any first world teenager. She’s surrounded by people she loves and who love her in return, but she struggles to connect in a meaningful way. You know… because she can lift tractors with a single hand and fly and stuff. So when her powers start going a little haywire, there’s nowhere to turn for support. Is it some sort of super-puberty? Or is something else going on?
Tamaki’s story is aching and quiet, and J ...more
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 just trying to figure out who she is, just like her human friends. And then stuff gets real when bad stuff starts to happen and she has to decide quickly who she is and what she stands for. The teen stuff might be a ...more
কার কাছে যেন পরশংসা শুনে বইটা শুরু করেছিলাম, আর শেষে ভয়াবহ ভাবে আবারো আশাহত হলাম।
এই এক চেসটা আর কতবার করবে কমিক কোমপানিগুলো?
কোন হিরো একটু জনপরিয় হলেই তার অরিজিন সটোরি নিয়ে টানাটানি শুরু হয়ে যায়, আগের যা কলাসিক জিনিস ছিলো সেটা চেঞজ করে নতুন কিছু নিয়ে আসলেই যেন তাদের উদদেশয সফল। বইটা বা কমিকটা পড়তে আর আগের মত মজার থাকলো কি না সেটা যেন তাদের দেখার বিষয় না আর। ...more
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, and a nice update to Supergirl.
Supergirl: Being Super contains issues #1-4.
Chapter 1: Where Do I Begin - An introduction to Kara and her family and friends.
Chapter 2: Hold On! - Kara loses someone close to her, plus ...more
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 identity that doesn’t have to associate with her more popular cousin, something that Mariko Tamaki and Joëlle Jones have taken to heart when creating Supergirl: Being Super, their four-issue miniseries from last year which ...more
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 want to sleep on this.
