    Don't waste your time and/or money. The book's been a trainwreck since pretty much day 1. The art is decent, but none of the writers know what to do with the character. Loeb had her just go around the DCU and beat up other heroes, Rucka had her go to Kandor and subsequently go nuts, and Kelly just has her walk around in tiny outfits and angst. The only good issue of the series was #12, and that was the fill-in issue that served as a promo for the upcoming Terra miniseries. I dropped the book after issue 13, and the reviews I've read of 14 make me extremely glad I did (Kara is shooting crystals out of her stomach now? :sly:  ). The bad writing, combined with the fact that Supergirl, without fail, takes her top off once every issue have killed any interest I might have in Kara the Lesser.

    If you want to read something good with Supergirl, check out Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes. Kara's not the main star, but she's actually written as an interesting character for a change.

    I read the first 2 issues, and then dropped it. The art wasn't that great and the story blew chunks, so I've no idea whats happened since.

    I like the uniform though.

    Personally, I love the book. It's had it's ups and downs, but now that it's finally got a regular righter, it's really getting interesting IMO. Kelly is taking the character and running with her.

    And yes, Kara is drawn in a very hot way, but I've seen little of it as fanservice or taking away from the story, but maybe I'm weird.

    Yeah, avoid at all cost! I read the first 2-3 issues and dropped it immediately.

    Wow. I'm the only Supergirl fan left on the boards? Coulda sworn there was at least one more. It's Ben Reilly all over again! :lol

    I like her just fine in Legion. It's only her main book that's intolerable.

    Anyone care to post pictures of Supergirl for those of us who don't collect it? I want to see how hot she is drawn. :)

    i like Supergirl....of my 15 titles, when i plan to bring it down to 10 titles, this is one thats a keeper.

    But you should try it yourself, you might like it, you might not. Just as a lot of people think Astonishing X-Men is the best, i think its so-so...so your best bet would be go to Borders (or if your comic book store allows) read it there and see for yourself.

    Nope. I'm a Supergirl fan to the extreme. haha, I'm in it for the long haul. I've getting her shitty Legion Book just because it might be her starring in the book, even thought it's most likely not.

    Dropped it after I think issue 10. It was just a mess. I made my comments known in another thread on the book.

    I'm still along for the ride. If not for Churchill I might have dropped this book awhile ago. I just read the new issue.
    *Spoilers*







    The fight with Bat-girl was pretty bad-ass. The crystal spikes were weird. But the idea of Power-Boy being a deranged stalker is kind of cool.
