Death, friendship and Kryptonite handcuffs leads to a pretty damn good issue!

Kara tries to use her power to save her friend Jen from falling during the earthquake but her power fritz’s out and she can’t save her leading to her and her other friend Dolly to sink into sadness and despair with neither knowing what to do now.

Most of the issue is taking up with the aftermath of Jens death and is handled really well with Kara obviously feeling bad but somehow worse with the knowledge that it was in her power to save her. Still struggling to get a grasp on her powers and understand why she has them the balance between being supergirl and being a normal teen is portrayed perfectly, she deals with hardship as any other kid would but she also happens to be able to take our her anger by running faster than a ‘speeding bullet’

A lot of mysteries are starting to form now that really Intrigue me, why are her powers shorting out, why is the coach acting strange, what’s with the sports bracelet and most important of all who is in the kryptonite handcuffs and what are they being forced to do

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them.

A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
