I like the cover of New Coke Lobo getting dissected-with any luck the other Lobo is supposedly the imposter will do the same when they meet.

Well, that scene
[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
only lasts a short while as it turns out Lean Lobo was playing possum to get inside The Block. He then pulls a "Halloween" thought-he-was-dead-then-he-sits-up on two of Dr Veritas's assistants :lol:

Kara comes off like Wolverine-lite at times this issue but I think this is how they segue into the Red Lantern ring coming to "recruit" her.

And we get the New52 debut (?) of Blaze first created by Roger Stern back in 1990.

This wasn't a very good issue. I have to say, so far the first two issues by Tony Bedard have not impressed me. He's not as terrible a writer as Nelson was, but his characterizations leave a lot to be desired, and his dialogue is stilted and awkward. The whole story feels extremely forced.... the plot does not flow naturally at all. My guess is that a lot of it is caused by the fact that Bedard is shackled to a whole boatload of baggage from the previous writers of both Supergirl and the Superman/Action books (with Veritas and her ridiculous backstory, which I assume has been appearing in those other titles as well). I can see how it could be hard to dig out from under such a big pile of shit... and hard to come out doing anything other than stinking up the place. But still, the dialogue made me wince repeatedly, and there's really no excuse for that.

This was a really fun issue. Tony Bedard does a great job continuing Kara's growth, establishing Veritas' history, continuing the Lobo-story, and even introduces a new (old) character. This is a Supergirl that I can easily read and enjoy, especially compared to some of the weaker runs she's had (Matrix and Angel come to mind).

Agree to disagree...Peter David's Supergirl was one of the best books going at the time and is still criminally underrated. It makes the current run look like dreck.
