Supergirl #29

Set prior to last month's issue of Red Lanterns where Kara started the process of beginning to control the rage unleashed by her newest jewelry accessory, Supergirl #29 picks up with the newest Red Lantern completely out of control and her former roommate, who is secretly the Silver Banshee, stepping in to try and stop Kara's rampage.

Supergirl #29 struggles with selling the idea of Kara as a Red Lantern. While I think ultimate result of her time as a Lantern may help the overall development of the character and lead her to come to terms with feelings she's suppressed and ignored since her New 52 introduction, I'm not all that keen on watching the journey itself unfold.

Despite once again floating the idea that no Red Lantern can ever remove their ring and survive (something Guy Gardner has already accomplished) we know Kara's days as a Red Lantern are numbered, and unless someone is going to do full issue of a Kara and Dex-Starr team-up I'll probably wait until this journey is over before picking up another Supergirl comic. Hit-and-Miss.
