Supergirl continues to search for answers about who really destroyed Krypton in Supergirl #23. Kara has broken into the Green Lantern archive on the planet Mogo, where she has encountered the hologram of a dead Guardian of the Universe. The Guardian tells Kara that a group called The Circle was responsible for Krypton’s destruction. Before Kara can find out more information she is given a crystal that will help give her the answers she needs. What secrets does the crystal hold?
Once again, Marc Andreyko delivers a fast paced story that is a lot of fun. There are a lot of questions to be asked and Andreyko starts to answer our questions while delivering some great action. My favorite moments in this book come from Krypto who is used perfectly as comic relief. Kara, once again, has so much heart and the heartbreak she goes through is believable. Andreyko proves that he is the perfect writer for this series.
Kevin Maguire nails the art again. Every panel in this book is gorgeous. The highlights are the action sequences that are beautifully drawn. The Kryptonian axe that Kara wields looks great and the Green Lantern Corps look fantastic. I can’t say enough about the art, it’s just wonderful.
I do have a nitpick about this book, though. This being that the Green Lantern Corps feel out of place when it comes to the writing. Kyle and John seem to just roll over for Kara and let her do her own thing. It was just a bit jarring when it came to their confrontation. Maybe it was just me, but that’s what I noticed.
I did have fun reading this book, though, and can’t wait to see how the story ends.
