My favorite of the Current 'Super' series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Supergirl Volume 3: Sanctuary TP (The New 52) (Supergirl (DC Comics)) (Paperback)
Of all of the new 52 super book, Superman, Action Comics and Superboy. I was surprised that Supergirl would be my favorite series but the books seem to have an X factor that's a little missing from the others. Of all the the new series this one is getting better as it goes along.
This volume crosses over with the other 'Super' books for the H'El on Earth series. Seeing our heroine taken in my another Krytonian survivor promising the return of Kypton without revealing what this will mean for Earth. We also see Supergirl meet Powergirl for the 1st time in the new 52. (her older self from a alt universe.... thats comics for you).
The stories tumbling along at a decent pace and the writing breaks up the heroics and drama with some genuine comedic moments giving this book some real charm. I'd recommend reading from book 1 and 2 before this volume as the story lines and characters introduced in previous volumes feature again here.
The costume of Supergirl is a little awkward in todays age but the books to acknowledge this somewhat.
Overall I would highly recommend this series as one you might otherwise miss in favour of the more A-list heroes.

I was disappointed to find that the H'EL on Earth crossover was not complete, felt that being made to buy a seperate TPB Superman: H'el On Earth TP (The New 52) was just a money making scheme by DC. IMHO they could have put Supergirl #13 in with Vol.2 and then made Vol.3 complete. Sadly they did the same thing with Volume 4 and the Krypton Returns Crossover. Superman: Krypton Returns TP (The New 52)
