Comics Review : DC Comics : Supergirl The Silver Age Omnibus Volume One

Up Up and Away DC Comics Fans , Here is my review of The Supergirl The Silver Age Omnibus Volume One 1st a description of the volume one omnibus : Collecting the Girl of Steel’s adventures from Action Comics #252-307 As Superman’s secret weapon, Supergirl must adjust to life in the Midvale Orphange. The stories alternate between tales about friends and school, Supergirl’s efforts to master her new powers, and time-travel jaunts into the far future and distant past. Now on to my review of this Omnibus Volume One , Wow this is a great collection of Supergirl Silver Age comic stories in Action Comics #252-307 from 1959-1963. The binding of the Omnibus is good and is glued in and it has a table of contents of each issue and when it came out and who made it. Also the artwork is reproduced in the Omnibus so well and it uses high quality paper. Supergirl was created by Otto Binder and Al Plastino in 1959 and has been a big part of The DC Universe ever since. These stories are all about the early adventures of Supergirl. The landscape of comic books from 1959-1963 is different than it is today panels wise comics in those days had 6 panels per page where as today you have the big huge splash page for a comic story. You can see even in the early 1960’s the ideas DC Comics had for Supergirl using her as Superman’s secret weapon and her early beginnings as The Girl of Steel. I think as Supergirl Fans we all owe a huge thank you to the original creators Otto Binder and Al Plastino for coming up with the idea for Supergirl and for DC Comics for continuing to make stories with The Girl of Steel. Overall I give The Supergirl The Silver Age Omnibus Volume One a 9.5/10 a great volume of great classic Supergirl Comic Stories and can’t wait for Volume 2. Up Up and Away!!!
