Looks like my choice to jump ship when I saw "Joe Kelly" was a wise one.

Da FUG? That is SO wrong.

where's Streaky?

Brandon said...

Sales for Supergirl just went up 500% here in Kentucky.

Jon Hex said...

It's the return of the Silver Age, baby! All we need is Comet, the Super-horse and we'll have a REAL show.

Steven said...

Comet is now a transsexual half-lesbian, half-centaur, half angel comedian.

Last seen in Our Worlds At War. Probably erased from history now...

but it only takes one good writer with one good idea...

Haole said...

Good Heavens.

Graeme McMillan reviewed this book at the Savage Critic and rated as "Really Disturbing Whatever Happened To Quality Control Dan Didio Jailbait Supergirl Is Not Okay Especially When She’s Swapping Spit With An Evil Version Of Her Cousin Steaming Piles Of Crap From An Ass The Size Of The Moon Creepiness" which was the worst rating he could think of.

And that was without mentioning the Power Girl/Supergirl shower scene. Joe Kelly, what is wrong with you?

Mallet said...

That might be the single most disturbing thing ever. But naturally I think disturbing things are awesome ergo...

God damn Joe Kelly is awesome.

I'm just impressed that Supes is grabbibg himself a hand full of ass.

Ragnell said...

Anonymous -- It's a hand full of ass made from his own flesh and blood, though.

Ewww.

I guess we don't need to wonder what Lara's maiden name was anymore because it's now obvious which way the family trees grow on Krypton.

How wrong is it that my first response is to...

What ass?

Someone please give her a sandwich?

Is it just me or are there no redeeming qualities to this modern version of Supergirl at all.

I have never been able to enjoy the Michael Turner elfin-emmaciated waif look or the fact that her personality never seems to make any sense to me.

I just do not get her appeal at all.

CalvinPitt said...

Well, a friend of mine argued that this evil Superman is actually Ultraman from the Crime Syndicate, and so I guess technically is not related to her.

That being said, if Power Girl were to snap both their necks and kill this book forever, I'd be totally OK with that. I mean, "Obsidian Age" taught me Joe kelly writes stuff that's confusing, but that was confusing/awesome. This is just confusing/gag reflex-inducing.

Diamondrock said...

I'm of the mind that some of the incredible insanity in this issue can be contributed to the fact that he has to run with the crazy Jeph Loeb came up with and has to continue a story started by someone else.

Though honestly, that's probably just me being generous...

Your Obedient Serpent said...

Since Supergirl and Power Girl are parallel universe versions of the same person, if they have a thing goin', is it lesbian sex or just masturbation?

The Doc said...

I'm not reading Supergirl, so your entry was the first exposure I've had to those pictures. My soul just threw up a little.

Martin said...

If I want same-sex three-way incest porn, I can get it for free off teh Intar Web, and not spend $3.99 for a bunch of flat images that don't move and burn my retinas.

Who the eff are they marketing this to? The hentai crowd? Hell, pass me the "Love Hina" and put this in the circular file.

For THIS Linda Danvers gets Super-Sunday-Punched out of continuity?

Here's a thought. Joe Quesada has engaged in a total scorched-Earth campaign against everything Grant Morrison did for Marvel since the latter jumped to D.C. Why does Dan Didio persist in trying to salvage train wrecks like this and "Superman/Batman," now that Jeph Loeb has jumped across the river himself?

Martin said...

Something Kalinara said makes me think that this, ah, deeper relationship between Kara and Evil Kal might be a ruse so that she can get close enough to murk him.

That preserves a veneer of rationality over what is, otherwise, a very flagrant need to call Child Protection Services. :)

By the way, the code word for this entry was "TEX," essentially. How great is that?

Bill said...

Um. Jeez. I mean, I read Graham's review of this, but... uh. Yeah. Mere words couldn't quite prepare me for that. Yeesh.

From her first appearance in the book, I've chosen to believe that the Supergirl currently featured in LSH is actually a different character than the one in the actual Supergirl title. I think I'll continue down that particular path of delusion, thanks so much.

Blockade Boy said...

So, you think if we all pitched in and sent Joe Kelly enough money to order Cinemax, he'd stop writing stuff like this?

Doctor Polaris said...

"So, you think if we all pitched in and sent Joe Kelly enough money to order Cinemax, he'd stop writing stuff like this?"

No.

David Cutler said...

That comic HAS to be stopped.

HORRIBLE...

WORST.
COMIC
BOOK.
EVER.

I had this on my pull...i had hoped it would get better...it just gets worse and worse.

I will no longer buy this title.

The supergirl tale in Superman/Batman was bad but this regular series stuff is total crap.

Also, I've never cared for the skinny underfed image of this current Supergirl.

Long Live Power Girl---get her out of this nightmare book now!

If I get a boner from this, does that count as DC breaking the fourth wall?

Now that someone mentions it, who else thinks Michael Turner would be a great artist for a Paris Hilton comic? Maybe she can team up with Lindsey Lohan.
