Supergirl #61 Preview

A look at the first few pages from the latest issue

With a tagline like "SUPERGIRL VS. SOCIAL NETWORKING?", you have to be a little interested as the change in how comics work with social networking inside of them does offer potential. Technology changes how heroes are perceived, idolized and adored so it's an interesting avenue to explore, though few comics really do that at this point even with all that it offers for making stories even more intriguing. DC Comics has put out several pages of tomorrow's release of Supergirl #61 online though, to share via social network and the like, with the story by James Peaty and artwork by Bernard Chang.

Plot summary: Super villains are appearing out of thin air, ambushing the DC Universe’s young heroes. There’s a new smart phone app that let’s users photograph and track superheroes. Could there be a connection? Kara takes a page out of Lois Lane’s book and begins to investigate in SUPERGIRL #61.

The art and coloring looks great!  Somewhat reminiscent of Gil Kane.

This preview already reads better than when I had dumped this series: a bimboesque Supergirl yelling "touchdown" on a baseball field, having food thrown in her face, and flying off crying about it (Gates first issue).  This Supergirl seems to have toughness, spunk, spirit, and brains and does not need daddy Superman to do things for her.

In the Superman 80 page giant, the ugly shorts under the skirt disappeared too.  If the hypocritical bike shorts go away (seriously, look at Power Girl and Starfire who don't even have a skirt to cover their breif cut bottoms, and the bodies and clothing of the males, etc.) this character and book can stop feeling so restrained and dictated by crazy internet bloggers/message board posters who insult everyone, use sexist epithets, etc.  Supergirl should not have her sex appeal diminished in ways Superboy's is not.  She should have the appeal she all from her beginnings all the way thorugh issue 19 of the current series.

I'm going to wait for the issue where she fights super-powered roller derby girls
