      Let Peter David and Gary Frank take you back to the wacky, grungy mid-1990s with 3.5 stars. What I find surprising about David's Supergirl, despite Gary Frank's bright and poppy artwork, is the dark, supernatural, and philosophical tone. Not what I'd expect for Supergirl in the 90s. This has the cult feel of Morrison's Invisibles. Not to that level, but it tries to be within the confines of a mainstream DC comic. The 90s writing, as people often generally complain about, can be pretty cheesy, da [...]

    • James DeSantis says:

      Ah, I tried. I really tried. Are there ANY good Supergirl books to get? This is just boring. You got this Matrix Supergirl who can shapeshift but combines with a young lady who now becomes Supergirl and Linda Denvers at the same time. I just felt like it was confusing, and characters change on a whim to the plot, and most of the plot is 80's feel of "OH NO BAD GUY BEHIND IT ALL". I liked most of the art, and the question of purpose, but overall this was a big boring mess of a collection with odd [...]

      "Grunge Supergirl." Until the current TV series, DC has always been hit or miss with the Supergirl character. In the '90s, she wasn't Superman's cousin or even from Krypton. This "new" Supergirl was a shapeshifter created by Lex Luthor, and in this collection of her solo series, she merges her body and mind with misguided teen/twentysomething Linda Danvers, assuming Linda's life, friends, parents, and secrets as well as her skateboard and flannel shirts! I actually really liked "Matrix," the sha [...]

    • Nate says:

      This book is a mess. The Christian overtones never make sense to the world we are dropped into, the writing is incoherent and made me wonder at times if there were missing pages from my edition to the point that I would do page counts of several issues. As bad as the main issues were the "Legends of a Dead Earth" stories that conclude this collection are even worse with genuinely ugly art and reductive story telling.

    • Jim says:

      This is what every female oriented comic book should aspire to be, I wish BatGirl could have been this amazing. It really blew me away.

    • Adam Graham says:

      This book collects Issues 1-9 of Supergirl as well as the first annual and some back-up stories/supplementary material that appeared in Showcase 96 #8 and the Supergirl plus #1 team up with Mary Marvel. Matrix, a protoplasmic version of Supergirl, joined with the dying Linda Danvers in part to save her and in part because Matrix Supergirl was unsure if she had a soul. Now, that she's combined with Linda, she's not sure that she got a good soul as she begins to discover wasn't just a victim of a [...]

    • Jacki says:

      This actually contained a story about Mary Marvel stating that a police officer attempted to molest her while in her teenage form and Supergirl and others don't believe her because the cop is a "good guy". And that's pretty much how they leave it, making a young girl question her reality and experience. The rest of the book isn't much better. The whole Linda Danvers storyline is about a woman being manipulated by a man to commit horrible crimes.

    • Michael says:

      A dark and searching superhero adventure, as Peter David, abetted by solid Gary Frank artwork, questions morality.But skip the dreadful "Dead Earth" Annual.

    • James says:

      Good story. Legends of Dead Earth are a great extrapolation of the possible outcomes of current events.

    • Mahala says:

      honestly, i'm still kinda confused about the whole linda/matrix thing but i still really liked it! although that one issue with mary marvel was extremely questionable

    • Elisabeth (Enthralled by the Written Word) says:

      I’m liking this incarnation of Supergirl.

    • Jennie says:

      Weird, kinda hard to follow, and oddly religious. Bleh.

    • Pascal Salzmann says:

      This is not your traditional superhero book. This is different. If i had to describe it I would do a TV analogy. It's basically "Twin Peaks meets superhero comics with a few elements thrown in that made Buffy such a great show". It is pretty dark and adult but at the same time very clever and sophisticated for a comic book - and really not comparable to the Superman comics.This graphic novel includes issues 1 - 9 of the 1996 Supegirl series, written by Peter David and drawn by Gary Frank. It als [...]

    • Brandon says:

      I actually didn't think it was all that bad oddly enough. Despite the very convoluted history of Supergirl, and this one in particular, I appreciated the themes of humanity and creation ands, despite being an atheistgod.The last few segments are oddly thrown into this collection though and have nothing to do with Peter David's run. They aren't terribly good either, so who knows why they were included.

    • Nicole Zeckner says:

      I'm a bit biased towards this version of Supergirl. This is what I read when I was in middle and high school. It's a much darker version of Supergirl than most people are used to, and I can see how it would be off-putting to some. It's definitely not for children, and in retrospect I was probably too young for it in middle school.That being said, I love this Supegirl era. Watching Supergirl war with herself and learn about her own humanity is fascinating.

    • Lisa says:

      This was a different and interesting take on Supergirl. This is not the average girl from Krypton. She merges with Linda Danvers to gain a soul, she can shot energy bursts from her mind, she has Linda's memories and family as well as the one that she grew up with. This was also easy to follow and flowed as one complete story. I really liked this.
