Supergirl: Being Super #2 - A Review

An earthquake during a track meet destroys more than the local high-school arena. It also claims the life of four people, including one of Kara Danvers' only two friends in the whole world! Now, Kara struggles to overcome the loss as she ponders the strange powers she has hidden her whole life and curses how they failed her when she needed them most!

Those expecting a high-action adventure will be disappointed by Supergirl: Being Super. Those who enjoy author Mariko Tamaki's previous graphic novels, fans of Shojo manga or anyone who appreciates a good coming-of-age story will find this a most engaging take on the origins of Supergirl. The art by Joelle Jones and colorist Kelly Fitzpatrick prove a perfect match to the story, presenting a Kara who looks like a real teenage girl rather than a pin-up. I'll be stunned if this one doesn't make the ALA Great Graphic Novels for Teens list.
