Supergirl, Volume 1: Last Daughter of Krypton
. Collecting issues 1-7, by Michael Green & Mike Johnson, and Mahmud Asrar.
When DC Comics re-booted their new entire line of comics in September 2011, they were inconsistent in how faithful they were to prior incarnations of particular heroes. Each editor and creative team were free to decide how much of the "old stuff" stayed around in the new continuities. Supergirl received one of the most dramatic overhauls, a much-needed dramatic overhaul. I had heard that this was one of the stronger "super-books" of the New 52,
and I think that's right.
By Mike Carey, Sebastian Fiumara, and Guilia Brusco. Based on the novel by Orson Scott Card. Like the Ender's Game adaptation, this book was broken into a pair of 5-issue mini-series, Battle School and Command School. And like the other adaptation, I wonder if someone unfamiliar with the source material would be lost. But that having been said, the story is terrific, and this adaptation moves at a very nice pace.
