"It's graduation day, and things couldn't be more complicated! The whole gang is here, and the cosmic craziness is about to get way out of hand!"

Received a review copy from the publisher.

Loved this!  Action-packed superhero adventure filled with 8th-grade female heroes and villains.  Add a little Lex Luther and a Superman who needs rescuing and you have have a fantastic grrrrl power comic.  Hilariously fun, too. I've got the next issue which is coming up next.

"How will Supergirl ever wrap up all of the cosmic craziness that has developed since her arrival on Earth? Arch-frenemies, scheming faculty, an intergalactic orange kitty and a flying horse are just a few things that come her way in this final, action-packed issue!"

Received a review copy from the publisher.

Another great issue!  I've actually found that this is the last in a 6-issue mini series.  These editions are excellent durable quality for libraries or such.  While the original issues could be found in comic shops and there is a trade paperback edition of all six issues available as well.  Four great girl superheroes, three of whom are various time/dimension incarnations of Supergirl have to grapple with the dimensions visiting up to the 10th dimension to save the 3rd.  A lot of fun and a great title superhero title for young girls. Not many of those around!
