Supergirl #21

Supergirl #21 is a transitional issue that gives Kara a new purpose and mission far from her adopted home. Recent events with Rogol Zaar have raised far too many questions for the Maid of Might, and after the discovery that even the Guardians of the Universe have something to hide about the mad man who claims to have destroyed Krytpton, Supergirl heads out to find answers.

Kara's absence leaves yet another hole in Superman's world as recent events have the character more isolated that he's been in quite some time. The choice of Kara's traveling companion is an interesting one that provides some familial bond and also gives Kara someone to talk to in the darker and lonelier moments.

Marc Andreyko and Kevin Maguire are an interesting pairing for this book. I enjoyed Kara's interactions with Superman and Hal Jordan (even if I've never been the biggest fan of how Maguire draws the universe's greatest Green Lantern). As for who or what is going to great lengths to hide the information that Supergirl seeks, I guess we'll just have too wait and see what she uncovers in her travels. Worth a look.
