    Wow that was not what I expected...World: The art is good. I like Ching's art and I like the tone it gives the book. The world building on the other hand is a mixed bag. I like Kara meeting Supes and Babs and I like her being a part of the greater DCU. I also liked the call back to Tycho which gave the New 52 stuff weight. The Phantom zone stuff is fine, I don't mind more crazy SF, but I felt that the wishy washy armor stuff was kinda a stretch for me and over the top...really...a pirate....Stor Wow that was not what I expected...World: The art is good.

The tone is good, the sense of hope is good. The Phantom Zone story was on the other hand not what I wanted at all and fairly stupid. We just got a great little first arc of Kara in her small little piece of National City. School Life, Parents, DEO and Catco it was a nice little mixture. Now we get away from all that and just do a big bombastic weird SF Phantom Zone story with a dumb villain. Yeah I was not a fan. I liked that Babs was there but she was inconsequential. This story was just boring and taking Kara in the wrong direction. Characters: Kara is good, her sense of hope and seeing the best in people is a really refreshing thing. She didn't have a lot to do this arc as it was all fighting and that's about it. The Superman issue really was a beautiful quiet issue which gave us the most development. The rest of the cast were just fairly Meh. Not a lot of time with the cast from the last arc and when we did get it Ben was zzz. Babs was asked, wanted more great banter, it was way better in the annual. The villain was just stupid, Phantom. Zone Soave pirate...zzzIt was not a good arc and not a good direction for the book. Onward to the next book!*read individual issues*

    Absolutely LOVED the team up with Batgirl this volume. Also, really cool getting to explore the phantom zone. In love with Brian Ching's artwork for this series so I'm sad to see him finish his work as the interior artist. But! I'm excited to see what the next team of artists brings to the series.

When Supergirl and Batgirl find themselves trapped in the Phantom Zone, they must work together with another super-powered character named Psi (coming soon to a Supergirl TV show near you) to free themselves from the Phantom Zone King and get back home. This story proves once again what separates Supergirl from her peers; she's the one that opts for compassion first, rather than fighting. I know Superman does it too, but Supergirl's seems more...honest? Or possibly more desperate. Considering all she's been through, wanting to avoid fighting as much as possible makes a lot of sense for the character. We also get a one-and-done featuring Lar-On, the werewolf from the Rebirth special that helps bring him back to the fore for later on, and a Superman: Reborn aftermath issue that has Kara and Clark team up against the Emerald Empress in a story that sets up the following arc. There's a lot of forward plotting going on here, which is one of the things I love about Rebirth in general - the creative teams are able to set all this stuff up and know that they're going to get to pay it off.The art in the main story is by Brian Ching, who drew the opening volume, and his angular style fits the Phantom Zone almost more than the main universe, to be honest. It does feel a little rushed at times, however. Matias Bergara takes the opening two issues, and he's...okay? There's not a lot to be said here, but he fits the aesthetic of the character probably moreso than Ching does.Good fun. Superhero team-ups should be fun, and this one nails that.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this instalment of Supergirl! Loved the battle and the aid from Ben and Batgirl. Art is still fresh and vibrant and the writing isn't overcomplicated. Can't wait to see what Cat is up to!! RIP Adam West! I am so lucky to have been brought up in a generation of Batman lovers and the memorial in the back of the final issue in this ark was beautiful.
