Over the past couple of issues, Supergirl and Krypto have been on an “intergalactic road trip” to uncover answers about what happened to Krypton. Kara is hanging out at a bar on the edge of the galaxy looking for someone who knows about the events. While at the bar, Kara starts asking questions and ends up getting into a bar fight. But Kara isn’t alone because Krypto shows up to help her. Afterwards, Kara meets an unlikely ally and they go to find answers together.
Marc Andreyko continues to craft a story that is so well done. Andreyko continues to up the personal stakes for Kara and as a reader I fell those stakes. This is not only and investigation for Kara but a mission of revenge. The emotional weight of what happened to her home planet is taking its toll. All of these things continue to show the strength of Andreyko’s writing and how deeply he cares about these characters.
The art by Evan “Doc” Shaner is beautiful and he conveys the weight of the story in every panel. There is a bar fight early on in the book that is a lot of fun and is action packed. My favorite panels in this book are between Kara and her new ally while they are flying in her ship. The panels focus on them while Krypto is walking around in the background possibly getting into trouble. I also loved the final panel of this book that starts to set up the endgame of the story. I look forward to seeing Shaner’s art for the rest of the story arc.
The only negative thing to take away from this book, is that the villains are not as involved as they should be. The are staying in the shadows and I would like to see more from them. I want to see their motivations and why they did what they did. I hope the answers come soon.
I enjoyed this book and I love the story from Marc Andreyko.
