Book Review | Supergirl, Vol. 1: Last Daughter of Krypton


Another comic and another failed review.  I wrote only two sentences to describe my review of Supergirl, Vol. 1: Last Daughter of Krypton on goodreads.  Thirteen whole words.  I don’t have much to go on with this one.  I really need to catch up with my reviews and write them as soon as I finish the book or in this case the comic book.  I think the goal should be to write the review while I still have to book in hand.  Here I am writing about a book I finished months ago when I really need to be writing about the book I just finished this week.

What I do remember about this comic is that the artwork was good but not as good as Captain Marvel I had read just before.  I also know that I grabbed this from the library and it really confuses me why they would buy only one volume and then never buy the next?  Was it a request from a patron and then never followed up with a request for the next in the series?  I liked this Supergirl comic and would like to read more.

I’d like to read more comics of lots of different kinds, but my libraries really don’t invest much in them.  They do however have a subscription to Hoopla which recently acquired the rights to “lend” Marvel comics.  That’s very cool, that means they will have the Star Wars comics on there.  It’s been so long since I read one I don’t remember where I was in all the different series.  I will have to find out though!

5/5 Stars!

Star Wars: Chewbacca

Star Wars Chewbacca
Star Wars Chewbacca by Gerry Duggan

Star Wars: Chewbacca is one of the most recent comic book complications in the new Star Wars Cannon.  I had to wait a long time for this one to come in from our library.

The story starts with Chewbacca stranded on a strange planet after crash landing.  Soon trouble finds him in the form of a tween girl.  She needs his help and lovable caring Chewbacca is there for her after his usual complaints that no one can understand.

The story follows the battle against the bad local bad guys and eventually Chewbacca and his new little pal have to part ways.  Chewbacca proceeds to his original destination Kashyyyk, his home planet, where he is able to finally deliver a box.  We are never told what is the box, but I got the feeling it was the remains of a fallen comrade.
