First. The Color used here is simply beautiful, as it vibrantly pops out!

Second. Hopefully, we will see more and more Supergirl in issues going forward.

One caveat, although Supergirl’s boots are based on the TV show, that was based on old discarded 1970’s variant costume – I do wish her boots were the same as Superman’s, more like her original one with “M” at the top! IMHO it would be perfect!

Very appropo, as Supergirl was the backup feature for years in Action Comics.

I know it’s going to be Superman’s 80th anniversary soon, but I can’t help but wonder what they will do to commemorate his 100th anniversary 20 years from now. The art on these covers are so well done. I think that when the 100th anniversary comes, they will do something extra special for Superman. I look forward to whatever they have planned for that special issue.
