    I liked the idea of Batgirl and Supergirl teaming up in a new version of World's Finest. The Phantom Zone story was just awful. Xa-Du keeps talking about melting the girls down into solar tallow and adding them to his Kryptonian flesh suit. Can it get any dumber or more maniacal? I feel like Orlando needs to buff up on his Superman history. Anytime something from Superman's lore is brought in, it doesn't follow established lore.

The Cyborg Superman being Kara's dad in the last volume when over in Superman it's Hank Henshaw is a prime example. Then you have villains from different future time periods showing up for something Supergirl may do in the future. It's terrible writing. Pick one or the other. The Emerald Empress is from a thousand years in the future while Magog is only about 20 years down the road.

    Damn it, Orlando, why must you do this! Two pretty good issues, and in one of them Supergirl hangs out with Superman — may easily be the best issue Orlando's written to date. But what follows is the dullest, most generic and boring superhero team-up with stupid Batgirl of Burnside. The story was bad, the villain was bad, the dialogue was just atrocious.

    For someone who didn't follow the Supergirl storyline very closely, I think the Rebirth version of Supergirl is doing okay, the plot is nothing unique but it serves its purpose as an entertainment piece. The guest appearance of Batgirl is also welcomed, will move on to read the next book.

    Wow that was not what I expected... World: The art is good. I like Ching's art and I like the tone it gives the book. The world building on the other hand is a mixed bag. I like Kara meeting Supes and Babs and I like her being a part of the greater DCU. I also liked the call back to Tycho which gave the New 52 stuff weight. The Phantom zone stuff is fine, I don't mind more crazy SF, but I felt that the wishy washy armor stuff was kinda a stretch for me and over the top...really...a pirate....

Story: The first two issues are great with the Superman issue being a highlight. The tone is good, the sense of hope is good. The Phantom Zone story was on the other hand not what I wanted at all and fairly stupid. We just got a great little first arc of Kara in her small little piece of National City. School Life, Parents, DEO and Catco it was a nice little mixture. Now we get away from all that and just do a big bombastic weird SF Phantom Zone story with a dumb villain. Yeah I was not a fan. I liked that Babs was there but she was inconsequential. This story was just boring and taking Kara in the wrong direction. Characters: Kara is good, her sense of hope and seeing the best in people is a really refreshing thing. She didn't have a lot to do this arc as it was all fighting and that's about it. The Superman issue really was a beautiful quiet issue which gave us the most development. The rest of the cast were just fairly Meh. Not a lot of time with the cast from the last arc and when we did get it Ben was zzz. Babs was asked, wanted more great banter, it was way better in the annual. The villain was just stupid, Phantom. Zone Soave pirate...zzz It was not a good arc and not a good direction for the book. Onward to the next book! *read individual issues*

    5 🌟 Supergirl and Batgirl team up and go into the Phantom Zone. Supergirl also meets with Superman and celebrates the Day of Truth. Nice to see Supergirl and Batgirl team up. Also nice to see Kara with Clark. Glad they were able to help Psi. Hope Psi will be able to help the Phantom Zone. Wonder what Supergirl will do with Catco now.

    Definitely not as good as the first volume. I really tried to stick with this series but I have to admit it was a bit of a chore to get through this book. There are too many pieces of plot converging here and after reading Volume 1 of the Supergirl Rebirth series I just do not like the art. This book is also a bit cheesy and cliche in some parts. I am not saying that the cheesiness in dialogue is horrible its just too much for my taste. This version of Supergirl is meant to be more optimistic an Definitely not as good as the first volume.

I am not saying that the cheesiness in dialogue is horrible its just too much for my taste. This version of Supergirl is meant to be more optimistic and filled with hope, much like her CW counterpart. Maybe that is the problem with this take on the girl of steel, it is trying to hard to mimic the feel of the CW show. I admit I really enjoyed where writer Steve Orlando took Supergirl in the first volume. What I has hoping for was in the arc following the volume 1 we'd get to spend more time with Kara in school, which would be a different take on the character. The coloring in the book is good but the art style is more cartoon and less comic book. Maybe DC is marketing this book more for young girls and if so I have to give its style a past. Ultimately the plot was simple and the use of the villains Magog and Xa-Du with no context is just forgettable. It was nice seeing Batgirl team up with Supergirl, which old school fans will appreciate. I really hope the interesting build up with the Emerald Empress and the Fatal Five pays off in the next volume. I wish I had enjoyed this volume as much as the first. Series had a strong start to it. Usually artwork doesn't take me out of the story but I just feel another art style is needed to make this series pop.

When Supergirl and Batgirl find themselves trapped in the Phantom Zone, they must work together with another super-powered character named Psi (coming soon to a Supergirl TV show near you) to free themselves from the Phantom Zone King and get back home. This story proves once again what separates Supergirl from her peers; she's the one that opts for compassion first, rather than fighting. I know Superman does it too, but Supergirl's seems more...honest? Or possibly more desperate. Considering all she's been through, wanting to avoid fighting as much as possible makes a lot of sense for the character. We also get a one-and-done featuring Lar-On, the werewolf from the Rebirth special that helps bring him back to the fore for later on, and a Superman: Reborn aftermath issue that has Kara and Clark team up against the Emerald Empress in a story that sets up the following arc. There's a lot of forward plotting going on here, which is one of the things I love about Rebirth in general - the creative teams are able to set all this stuff up and know that they're going to get to pay it off. The art in the main story is by Brian Ching, who drew the opening volume, and his angular style fits the Phantom Zone almost more than the main universe, to be honest. It does feel a little rushed at times, however. Matias Bergara takes the opening two issues, and he's...okay? There's not a lot to be said here, but he fits the aesthetic of the character probably moreso than Ching does. Good fun. Superhero team-ups should be fun, and this one nails that.

    Absolutely LOVED the team up with Batgirl this volume. Also, really cool getting to explore the phantom zone. In love with Brian Ching's artwork for this series so I'm sad to see him finish his work as the interior artist. But! I'm excited to see what the next team of artists brings to the series.

    "Escape From the Phantom Zone" was an improvement over volume 1 of this series, but I still feel like the writing and art are doing a disservice to Supergirl. I'm glad to see a new artist picking things up in volume 3 and making Kara look less elvish. Anyway, things I liked this time round: The team-up with Batgirl finally gives Kara a peer to banter with and lightens Supergirl up a lot and adds some spunk to her personality! (I still wish she'd use contractions in her speech, as she comes across "Escape From the Phantom Zone" was an improvement over volume 1 of this series, but I still feel like the writing and art are doing a disservice to Supergirl.

(I still wish she'd use contractions in her speech, as she comes across like Starfire on the Titans Go cartoon.) I also liked seeing a modernized version of Psi, an adversary from Paul Kupperberg's Daring Adventures of Supergirl series of yesteryear. I hope she makes a comeback at some point. It was nice to see Supergirl get some family time with her famous cousin, too. And while the Phantom Zone itself made little sense (pirates? dragons? a phantom king?) compared to how I've always imagined it in decades of Superman lore, there was something about it that recalled Helen Slater's struggle to escape it in the Supergirl movie. Exactly how many people are imprisoned in the Phantom Zone though? Things I didn't like: The portrayals of Cat Grant, DEO Director Chase, and Ben Rubel are terrible. If these characters are supposed to be the supporting cast, they need to be fleshed out and made likable. As it is, all come across as extremely self-serving, one-sided, and trite. I know the appearances of Magog and Emerald Empress are supposed to be setting up the next storyline, but how random is it that a sorceress from the 31st century shows up to wage war on Superman and Supergirl, is defeated in all of 5 minutes, and they just shrug it off with little question as to what is going on? How does Supergirl even know who the Emerald Empress is? I'm sure it will all be sorta explained in volume 3!

    Not quite as good as volume one, but still not bad. This one was more hipster vibes than anything, despite all the fights. Overall, still interesting but the art still annoys me a bit... The colors are very vibrant, however and that helps some. I will be interested to see how this friendship with batgirl goes as well.

I *really* liked the friendship between Batgirl and Supergirl, which was probably the best part of this set of episodes. This is definitely true of the opening episode of this volume I really like the comic take on the character as compared to the show. She's younger and an immigrant teenager trying to cope with her place on Earth and among its people.

First up is "World's Finest" (Batgirl Annual) in which Batgirl and Supergirl meet and Supergirl invites Batgirl to help her break into Cadmus and rescue a young woman with mysterious powers. This story is okay, but its hurt by being a bit too overzealous in its attempts to be cool and hip and with a throw away line of Supergirl observing, "I'm a Super Strong illegal alien. There are lots of Americans who will take any excuse to hate people like me," as her explanation for why she wants Batgirl's help. She's not illegal if she's working for a government agency and it has nothing to do with why she wants Batgirl's help. We also get a recurring theme in the DC Universe that we don't ask Batman for help for fear he'll take over and do things "his way," as if he has time to do all that. The story is okay and sets the stage for later events, but there's some dumb stuff in it. Next up is "Mission: Mind" which finds Supergirl traveling through the mind of Lar-On, a Kryptonian afflicted with werewolve symptoms. To find out what's going on, Supergirl journeys to his mind. It's a very touchy feely sort of psychological story, but it's also really imaginative in its content and art. "Family of Tomorrow" features a brief battle with a baddie determined to stop Kara for something she hasn't done and then she gets to hang out with Clark and the rest of the Super Family and learn some information he's gathered in other books including his recent reboot. This is a lot of fun. I love how the Super Family guest stars in so many books. They make every book they appear in better. A very nice one shot. Finally, we have the titular "Escape from the Phantom Zone," and it's okay. Despite the presence of Batgirl, this is nothing special storywise, although there is some impressive art. Throughout much of the story, Batgirl takes the lead as Supergirl doesn't have powers, but in the end, Supergirl gets an opportunity to show the type of hero she is and just like in the first volume, it's epic, brave, and a very different approach than most other heroes would take. Overall, this book isn't great, but it's lot more good than it is bad. The art is impressive and the character is compelling . I wish we'd seen more of Jeremiah and Eliza in this book as theyw ere so great in the last one, but this book was an enjoyable read with an admirable and noble lead.

    I got this from a giveaway. Fair warning -- I'm not huge into the Super Family -- but I like graphic novels and haven't read much Supergirl, so I thought it would be fun to try.

The stories were also mixed. I am a huge Batgirl fan, so I was happy to see her make appearances, and those were definitely my favorite. Not just because of Batgirl, but also because I liked seeing Supergirl contrasted with another hero. Sometimes Supergirl comes off like she feels she's too good for Earth, comparing everything to Krypton and *their* superior technology, but with Batgirl around, it keeps her grounded. I especially liked their time in the Phantom Zone, as it made it so Supergirl had to rely on her inner strength, rather than her normal outer strength, which is far more interested. Much of the book was forgettable, though. Again, nothing awful, just stuff that you forget about the moment you shut the book. It's not a bad book, and if you're interested in it, then you should totally read it, but if you're looking for something to really hook you into Supergirl, I'm not sure this will do it.

    This was a mixed bag for me. The direct plot was all right. Although it felt like background for a character story that kind of fizzled. We see Barbara and Kara together, but we don't really learn anything particularly knew about them. It was definitely an attempt by Orlando to do the Batman/Superman or Superman/Batman thing only with the girls, but they don't have the history that just plunks down and fills in a lot of the silences in those stories, and Orlando treats it as if they did.

So the story isn't about subtle reflections on a deep, long-term friendship, instead it's a relatively fresh relationship that undergoes exactly zero growth or change. Good stuff--both characters feel right for their current incarnations, and both look good under the hand of the volumes new penciler. Interestingly this book is slightly more cartoony than the last in a way that leans a bit toward cute. It doesn't descend to Marvel tween girl book parody levels--THANK GOODNESS!--but the look comes close. Thankfully the story gives Kara and Barbara more credit than to reduce them to that. I'm curious to see where the balance falls as the book moves on.

    Sometimes it's difficult to write these team up books because of the shared spotlight. By splitting the time between characters, it makes it harder to convey a sense of drama and conflict when we have to keep bouncing back and forth.

I think Orlando has a good grasp on the voices of each character and handles their decisions wisely. However, the main plot regarding the Phantom zone, is a bit of a mess. It relies very heavily on past volumes, and feels scattered and disorderly. There is also a lack of urgency within the book. I mean, they are stuck in the freakin Phantom Zone! you would think they would be a bit more freaked out... but there is a much more casual attitude about the whole situation than it usually warrants. Overall, not sure if Orlando was going for more of an "all - ages" type of vibe, but the lack of danger or threat, even though they clearly should have been, just didn't work for me.

Saving Gayle only puts her in more danger, as she soon after uses Kara's energy to travel to the Phantom Zone, needing to 'set things right'. After a one issue side story celebrating the family and relationship between Kara and Clark, Supergirl is called to witness a new technology being activated.

Searching for Gayle, our heroes cross paths with Xa-Du, first Kryptonian prisoner ever, and battle breaks out. Surprise ending.... Last frame is Cat Grant shooting Supergirl, having determined she has no use left. Wonder how that will turn out? Supergirl is a good Rebirth comic and I hope to see something larger come from her, but still very much a recommend.

    2.5. A considerable improvement over Vol. 1 as it's not so obviously tracking the TV show.

    4.5 Stars I loved this instalment. Supergirl, Batgirl, Ben, Cat... all were excellent. Additionally, I have no idea how the trick with the glasses works but it’s super cool and a great homage. My one gripe is this: every time Superman is mentioned there is a new piece of conflicting information; first he’s dead, then an alternate universe version has replaced him, now he has a wife and a kid? I am extremely confused. (See Supergirl volume 1 & Nightwing). However, that is an issue with Superman and 4.5 Stars I loved this instalment. Supergirl, Batgirl, Ben, Cat... all were excellent.

I am extremely confused. (See Supergirl volume 1 & Nightwing). However, that is an issue with Superman and not Supergirl.

    I can honestly say this volume was a mess. The art quality seemed to not be as clean past the first story in the volume. Also that story was the most interesting in the volume. This one has Supergirl and Batgirl going into the Phantom Zone to do some things. This was very, very confusing overall and the storytelling was frankly bad. The two characters mentioned were written OK, but the whole story there was messy. Not a good volume, and I'll try one more to see if I continue this series.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this instalment of Supergirl! Loved the battle and the aid from Ben and Batgirl. Art is still fresh and vibrant and the writing isn't overcomplicated. Can't wait to see what Cat is up to!! RIP Adam West! I am so lucky to have been brought up in a generation of Batman lovers and the memorial in the back of the final issue in this ark was beautiful.

    via NYPL - Brian Ching's chapters are well drawn (the others less so), but I still find this a very bland book. I appreciate Orlando's efforts to create sorority between Batgirl and Supergirl, and to position Supergirl as someone who wins by inspiring us to be better, but the villain was bland, the plot typical, and the supporting cast remains so thin as to be transparent. via NYPL - Brian Ching's chapters are well drawn (the others less so), but I still find this a very bland book.

    I have been wanting to read a Supergirl and Batgirl team up for a long time. I’ve always thought they would be so much fun together. They are! The book was fun and hopeful. I love the art throughout the book and the writing was very enjoyable too. I hope to see more team ups in the supergirl line.

    For all the problems Superman has in the rebirth, at least he doesn't hold Earth in contempt while being presented as a hero like his cousin. For all the problems Superman has in the rebirth, at least he doesn't hold Earth in contempt while being presented as a hero like his cousin.
