Comics Review : The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl (1982-1984) Volume One Trade Paperback : DC Comics (2016)

Up Up and Away Super Friends and DC Comics Fans , Here is my review of The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl (1982-1984) Volume One Trade Paperback. 1st a description of the story and trade paperback : In these 1980s tales from THE DARING NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERGIRL #1-12, Supergirl relocates from Metropolis to Chicago-and meets evil in new forms, including the villainous Psi! Plus, while battling the evil foursome known as the Gang, Kara stumbles upon a conspiracy that threatens all of her new hometown! Guest-starring the Doom Patrol! Now on to my review of the trade paperback for Volume One of The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl , The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl is written by Paul Kupperberg and Joey Cavalieri with artwork by Carmine Infantino and Bob Oksner. This was a interesting time for The Girl of Steel at this point at DC Comics from the years 1982-1984 and when this 2nd Supergirl ongoing series was written. Back in 1972-1974 DC Comics had try’ed to put out an ongoing Supergirl series before but it did not sell well put Supergirl still appeared in Superman , Action Comics and Adventure Comics and had some good backup stories in those issues. Plus between 1959-1981 Supergirl had become more or a popular character. So in 1982 DC Comics decided once again to give Supergirl her own ongoing series titled The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl. The series which was re titled Supergirl in issue #13 was one of the best ongoing Supergirl comic series of all-time and one of the best during The Pre Crisis Era of The Girl of Steel. In The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl Kara is all grown up and is on her own and moved to Chicago and along the way she comes across the likes of The Doom Patrol , loyal new friends and powerful new foes, astounding new discoveries and terrifying new dangers. And this also featured the debut of who would become a big villain in Supergirl’s history Reactron. The series which lasted 23 issues was great and Volume has some good writing by Paul Kupperberg and Carmine Infantino’s artwork and panel work for The Girl of Steel is amazing. The panel where Supergirl escaped the death pit and also her fight with Reactron their is some amazing artwork done in this series. Also the last issue with Supergirl confronting the police officer was a good cliffhanger and shows why Kara is who she is and won’t take anything for granted as a superhero. Overall I give The Daring New Adventures of Supergirl (1982-1984) Volume One Trade Paperback a 9.5/10 a great Supergirl Trade Paperback and one of the best of the pre crisis era of Supergirl.
