Supergirl #8 review

This is the BIG one! Because you DEMANDED it! Read DC’s BEST! Decades ago, you could bet your Junior Justice Society badge that the cover would have one of these lines or a close variation. Because this is the one we’ve been waiting for, the team-up between Superman and Supergirl that shows us these two […]
