    1 thought on “Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures of the 8th Grade”

    1. "Gah! My Eyes! I can see through everyone's clothes! I don't want to see through everyone's clothes!"Supergirl, like all superheroes, has been through many incarnations. This volume collects in its entirety the six-issue run of "Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade," in which she is an eighth-grader sent to a boarding school by Superman after she "accidentally" gets rocketed from the Kryptonian city of Argo to Earth.First of all, it's very much a children/MG series, not really part of D [...]

    2. A fun series; it's a shame they cancelled it. This was probably one of the least problematic superhero role models for young girls.

    3. Kara from the moon Argo stows away on a rocket and finds herself stuck on planet Earth. She begs her older cousin, Superman, to make her his sidekick, but he insists she learn more about human culture first, and enrolls her in middle school.You’d think that having super-powers would make things easier, but they just make it harder for Kara to fit in. Life gets even more complicated when she makes friends with her roommate Lena (whom she doesn’t realize is the niece of supervillian Lex Luthor [...]

    4. This collection of a too-brief 2009 all-ages series is out of continuity but oh-so-fun. Young Kara crashes to earth and gets set up in school where she has the normally comedic problems fitting in -- especially with powers that are flaking out, an evil twin that keeps popping up, a best friend named Lena Thorul, and a mysterious cat named Streaky. It's fun, it's upbeat, it's interesting, it's suitable for kids and adults alike -- in short, it's everything that DC isn't these days, and so is wort [...]

    5. A fun all-ages read. Maybe Supergirl should be written like this instead of the jailbait look we see in the mainstream DC universe.

    6. This was a fun and quick read. It was light-hearted with a great story. Not every comic book has to be dark and moody.

    7. A must-have Supergirl title for any superhero collection. Fitting for younger readers as well as seasoned DC comics fans.

    8. Landry Walker was born almost exactly one month after I was. A 38-year-old man seems an odd choice to write about the adventures of a 13-year-old girl (they were written 3 years ago). And once you actually read the book, it's apparent that the writer doesn't have a ton of insight into this particular demographic. Not that I doI have a 10-year old daughter, and I can't claim to understand it either. But I would have thought that maybe someone who actually once was a 13-year-old girl might have mo [...]

    9. Initial Response I really wish there were more of these High Lights - Kara/Linda is SUCH a funny character! I loved seeing into her thoughts in some panels. Her brain whips up panic and it's hilarious to see.- Lena, even though she didn't appear until later on, was a cool character too! (view spoiler)[I also kinda saw it coming when she was Lex Luthor's sister, but it was still really neat.(hide spoiler)]- The art style was really fun and lively. It was really easy to jump from panel to panel, t [...]

    10. This six issue Supergirl miniseries written by Landry Q. Walker and illustrated by Eric Jones was funny and entertaining even as simple fluff. Not everything has to be high art. And a story about an 8th grade Kara hiding her identity from her best friend Lena Thorul while dealing with an arch nemesis Belinda isn't meant to teach anyone anything except how to smile, laugh, and enjoy a good superhero romp.I particularly enjoyed the art by Eric Jones. It's like the perfect blend of My Little Pony: [...]

    11. “Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 8th Grade” by Landry Q. Walker, Eric Jones (Illustrator) (#1) Supergirl has special powers, even seeing through people's clothes!Superman helps her go incognito as Linda Lee.But her school principal doesn't like her!(#2)Somehow Linda Lee has created a parallel universe version of herself, Belinda Zee, only she is a super-villain.(#3)Don't you just hate it when saving the world from a delay astroid ends up sending cosmic powers to your school friends who b [...]

    12. This is so much fun to read. This is a modern take on Supergirl, which is probably much more realistic than the Supergirl that I grew up with in the 1960s (but who I adored). The nice thing is that a lot of the elements that I liked about my Supergirl are here too, with nodes to the original. Comet the flying horse, Streaky the cat, Secret Identities and super villains.So what is different? Supergirl is given the Mean Girl treatment. There is a queen bee. There are goofy kids, strange teachers.I [...]

    13. There's shockingly few good "all-ages" comics an even less that are suitable for young girls. This one fits the bill, a perfect comic for a young newcomer, that picks and chooses the iconic and bizarre pieces of the Superman mythology and tells a great story with a lot of humor and charm. The art is clean and cartoony, the writing is dopey and fun. Pure comics fun, if I ever have a daughter, she's going to read this.

    14. I like Supergirl, the simple art and character design serves the book well. I like the dynamic between Supergirl, her roommate Lena, and her evil twin and how that shadows the Lex Luthor Superman relationship. Walker also does a very good job setting up the awkwardness of being a teenager (even if you have super powers or are an evil genius) and how generally awful middle school is without this ever feeling like a YA novel.

    15. Finally got around to reading this series. I like that there's a series for middle schoolers especially readers looking for girl superheroes. It's goofy and very middle school antic. Kara (aka Supergirl) is Supermans younger cousin who seems to not handle being "super" all that well. As she adjusts, she runs into familiar super Gillian's , of at least their younger family members. Entertaining enough for z younger crowd.

    16. Cute, quick, and I love that although she's in eighth grade there's nothing really inappropriate in this at all. (It seems like most of the time as soon as a middle schooler stars in the book a bunch of stuff that makes it impossible to ever hand it to younger kids is thrown in.)This is a fun graphic novel and I'm sure will become popular quickly!

    17. A tween from Krypton crashes to Earth as she foolishly runs away from home and her 'mean' parents. Luckily (or not so) she relies on Superman to guide her through the daily ins-and-outs of life on this unfamiliar planet. She'll be ok thoughher name is Kara (even though the spelling is wrong). (HA!).

    18. Nice adaption. Reminded me of a Cartoon Network cartoon ( this is a high recommendation). Plot is clear without being simple and involves most of the major elements of the Superman Universe with enough tweaks to make it original.

    19. o.k. Kara accidentally is flown to earth in her father's rocket ship. Unfortunately Superman is not able to return her to her own planet. Instead she is enrolled in middle school where she tries to fit ino sparse on story.

    20. A fun cute book that seriously should have been continued. I was also glad that the villain admitted to involvement in getting Supergirl to Earth b/c her behavior freaked me out as a little.

    21. Fun, light hearted and filled with entertaining nods to super girls confusing history. More of this, please.

    22. This book was so cute that it was fun. Great for little girls and the fathers who want them to like comic books.

    23. Fun read with my kids and a nice shift away from the many oversexualized versions in the past few decades
