Jeez, the Supergirl story-arc is down there in the Bottom-10 of worst DC stories ever, alongside Death of Superman and Emerald Twilight. Horrible work, and the art made it all much worse... the whole thing is unreadable, and unwatchable.



> LH is a good comic but it's not perfect.


Fair enough. I liked some not so perfect comics in the past.



> However, it is much better than Superman/Batman and for that matter Hush. I think Tim Sale's art managed to give it a certain mood that the other comics didn't have.



Tim Sale just can't get enough praise. That guy is beyond human.
Thanks a lot for your reply.





"Alright you primitive screw-heads, listen up. See this? This is my boomstick! It's a 12-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan; retails for about one hundred nine, ninety-five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right, shop smart, shop S-Mart!"

A few weeks I was looking through the "Comics" folder on my hard drive and stumbled across something I'd almost forgotten about. Some old notes for a scathing parody of the "Supergirl from Krypton" story arc; similar to what I did a few years ago in a parody of Jeph Loeb's "Hush." I started wondering if I ought to (shudder) reread the source material and then finish up the parody and post it? The plot holes, the wildly-out-of-character clueless assumptions, the this, the that, and the other thing that were all wrong with the arc?
