Supergirl #27

I'm saddened, but not surprised, by DC refusing to capitalize on the perfect situation to admit a horrific mistake and move on. Last issue ended with Supergirl killing the pointlessly redesigned pseudo-Lobo which I had hoped might mean that DC Editorial had chosen to listen to fan outrage of yet another bastardization of a classic character and carefully orchestrated a way to get rid of the character in a single issue. Nope. At least the art is good.

The "dead" pseudo-Lobo of course comes back to life to cause trouble for Supergirl along with Shay Veritas and the other scientists trapped aboard the dimensionally-trapped Block. The comic also introduces us the ship's prisoner/passenger with the New 52 introduction of Lady Blaze (who, if possible, interests me less than pseudo-Lobo).

Although I've grown to like this depiction of Kara, the comic's hot-and-cold storylines have been hit-and-miss for me and I have little interest in seeing Kara and pseudo-Lobo, Round 2 after her solar recharge. Maybe I'll come back for the next arc. Pass.
