Who would have ever thought the sleeper read of the Superman books would be Supergirl? Instalment #9 can be tied neatly to instalment #1, with no need of either having to read for enjoyment. Gates is a sorely needed reminder to what serial storytelling needs to be about: each issue should be self contained, yet part of a larger framework, which can be drawn upon for subplots to keep the engine running. It’s insanely difficult to do this with a decompressed format, and Gates wisely eschews this practice to produce a story that stokes genuine interest. It’s not often that I want to read the next issue of a comic; it’s become a robotic practice with some books as I review them, but I honestly look forward to each issue of Adventures of Supergirl, under Gates, and hope that he’s able to continue the run with the same quality.
