Supergirl: Being Super


(Click to Enlarge)

Long: When Caldecott Honor and Eisner Award-winning writer Mariko Tamaki teams up with Eisner Award-nominated artist Joëlle Jones, high school and adult readers of DC’s Supergirl: Being Super get a new origin story for the teenage Girl of Steel (Kara Danvers). Kara Danvers has some memory of crash-landing on Earth eight years ago as a kid, but her adoptive parents encourage her to keep her pod’s unexplainable arrival and her powers a secret. Living in secrecy with her burgeoning powers, Kara’s most pressing problems at the beginning of the story are those of a “normal” teenager’s, but normal teenage problems take a back seat when the sudden eruption of an earthquake underneath her small town of Midvale unearths some secrets Kara thought would always stay buried.
