In the early 2000s DC brought back Supergirl. Once again she was Superman's cousin from Krypton with all his familiar powers. But after bringing her back they didn't know what to do with her. After several years of retcons and counter-retcons, exiling her to the future and making her evil DC seems to have gotten back on track.
In this book we start with Supergirl and the Legion of Superheroes in the 31st century looking back in time on Superman's career. It's a fun story but one that won't make much sense where she is or what's going on unless you're up your Legion lore. With the next story she's back in the 21st century and the Legion is never referred to again. Supergirl then goes into space and confronts her memories of the destruction of Krypton, it's a good character story. Finally in a standard superhero fight Supergirl saves a boy and promises he won't die. The twist is he has terminal cancer so Supergirl promises to save him by curing cancer. A time traveler then shows up to warn her. But that's where the book ends, we'll have to pick up the next volume to see what happens.
The art, mostly by Drew Johnson, is clear and bright, some of the best looking art this book has had. The fill in art by Rick Leonardi is a bit heavy and rough but not bad.
The problem is the same problem Supergirl has had since she returned - direction. This book has good ideas but it bounces from one to the other without resolving them or going anywhere. The first story with the Legion gives a good view of Supergirl's relationship with her cousin, but it just ends and never fits in with the rest of the book. The story where she sees the destruction of Krypton offers a possible insight to her personality, but just jumps into the next story with no resolution. The cancer story might be the most interesting but continues into the next volume. Kelly Puckett's stories are well-written and show promise but the book needs more direction and follow through to really come together.
