Supergirl – Peter David

I often liked David’s work and wanted to see what he would do with the ultimate Barbie AKA Supergirl. Be aware, as far as I knew, Supergirl was the cousin of Superman, so I was in for a surprise when I learned that she was some sort of inhuman construct (after the first six issues of this comic, I’m still not sure what her deal is) that merged with a dieing woman in order to gain a soul. Too bad that woman was a psycho murderer whose boyfriend was in league with all sorts of supervillians. There is a lot to work with here and his team for art, letters and colors are great (Gary Frank’s art gives plenty of up-the miniskirt-shots that you know you want), yet after half a year worth of issues, I know nothing about the characters and honestly don’t care.
