Come on, it's going to be bad, X-Men Forever is barely even a comic.

I read the preview last night, but it's blocked from memory for some reason.

Must've been too good for me to handle.

Supergirl #50

Queen by Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle
So let me get this straight. You're going to have a big anniversary issue for Supergirl #50 and you're going to make it really long and you're going to charge $5 for it and you're going to team Supergirl up with... GANGBUSTER?! For fucking serious? Gangbuster? Wowzers.

Candidates for all-time lamest team-ups aside, this was some boring comics. It had exposition out the hoohah and a plot that could make even the most strung out speed freak drowsy. The Lane stuff, the bug stuff, the Lang stuff, none of it even remotely peaked my interest as a new reader.

It's really a shame that the story was such a snoozefest, because Jamal Igle is really starting to come into his own. The last time I read a comic with Igle's art his pages felt cramped and constricted, but his pages have really opened up and become quite dynamic. Sibal and Ruffino have clearly helped take Igle's art to a new level.

Story: 3
Art: 8

A Hero's Journey by Jake Black, Helen Slater and Cliff Chiang
Holy pointless stories, Supergirl! What was that even supposed to be?! Is Helen Slater a draw to someone? When people think of Supergirl do they really think of a failed movie from over 25 years ago? Why are Cliff Chiang's considerable talents being wasted on this crap? Why am I still typing?

Story: 1
Art: 9

Overall: 5

I dunno, wasn't Porcelain or someone looking to go cougar-hunting?

I'm disappointed you would be so closed-minded.

I've read the first X-Men: Forever trade. It's okay(which is good by Claremont standards). If the upcoming issue is anything like the trade, then it won't be worth the $4. Considering my budget, I'm passing on next week's pick.
