Book Review: Supergirl, Vol. 3: Infectious

Supergirl Vol. 3: Infectious Supergirl Vol. 3: Infectious by Jody Houser

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


This one is...all over the place. This one goes very hurriedly into some dark stuff happening in Supergirl's world to her being infected by the Batman Who Laughs and going on a bit of a edgy rampage in stories like, "I'm the Bad Guy."

It's really not fun reading and it's a hot mess with most of it "character insights" coming off as a bit weak and nonsensical. Given that they had their choice of who would become "infected," it seems that someone didn't really have a plan of what was going to happen with Kara in this book.

The reason it's not 1-star is because of Krypto. He's seriously given some good characterization. It's all very subtle, but we manage to get his reaction and involvement to Kara's change in a way that's believable for a dog and actually made me care about what was going on. It's a shame that such great characterization for Krypto would be in such an otherwise dreadful book. It shouldn't happen to a dog.
