EPUB ☆ Showcase Presents Supergirl Volume 1 Showcase Presents · Jerry Siegel

Collected in this volume is the story that launched the Supergirl concept as well as the history and first appearance of Kara Zor El the teenager who would become Supergirl From her escape from Argo the city that w This is a collection of first Supergirl comics and some Superman Action Comics and Jimmy Olsen Superman's pal comics that feature Supergirl from the late 50s in black and whiteThe stories are fun at times unintentionally hilarious and mostly self cointained but unfortunately they get pretty repetitive Most of the stories are about Supergirl doing her best not to get adopted and saving people without revealing her existence to anyone which apparently translates to a lot of tunnel digging so this collection features little to no violence and is for all agesThe art is pretty standard for comics from that time and the black and white reprints lose almost nothing in comparison to the colored originals except for a few issues that take place underwater and look too darkOverall a fun read for all ages especially if you like comics about tunnel digging

Jerry Siegel · Showcase Presents Supergirl Volume 1 Showcase Presents KINDLE

Showcase Presents Supergirl Volume 1 Showcase PresentsAs spared Kryton's doom to her adoption of the secret identity of Linda Danvers to her first meeting with Supermanthese tales capture the magic of the Silver AgeDiscover the sense of wonder in these stories written It's bland and boring adventures from Superman now with Supergirl The only thing that prevents this from getting a lower score is Supergirl's effect on the storytelling Even though sometimes the reasons for her to be chastised and not be presented to the Earth as a real superhero are kind of dumb there is a clear and strong emotional pathos of Supergirl having the world pick on her for being well meaning and stuffThe Jimmy Olsen storylines weren't as crazy as some Jimmy Olsen storylines but they were diverting enough and the one Lois Lane issue was good It gets pretty tiresome for all of those other issues where Supergirl's like look a benign obstacle and then she's pouring dirt into a hole or gathering a lot of tropical fruit For some reason Otto Binder Jerry Siegel and the like hate giving people supervillains In the last 4 or so issues of Action Comics from here give Supergirl an evil Supergirl from the bottled city of Kandor There were clear flaws in the story but at least there was a clear antagonist It's like story writing 101The crossovers with the Legion of Superheroes was good but that was also always much better than old school Superman stories so duhA pity 45
