Supergirl issue 6 - Reviews!

Here we are again. It's been 14 months since Eric and I began working on Supergirl, and in that time alot has happened. There have been many conventions and signings and interviews and late nights. It's been very good and we miss it terribly. But, the experience has been very much worth it. All to often in this industry, you release a comic and you are greeted with silence. No emails. No reviews. Nothing. Eric and I have worked in comics for 17 years, most of it in relative obscurity. Even when we worked on Disney Adventures Magazine, a magazine with distribution of over a million, feedback was uncommon. 5 year olds write very few letters.

What I am clumsily trying to say is that this level of reader participation has been rare for us. Rare and welcome.

And now it's time for the last set of reviews. These are the ones that have the most meaning to me, critically speaking. I have argued on many occasions that a story is only as good as it's ending. Well, this is the ending. And these are probably the most positive reviews to date. Particularly nice to see is the review at Superman Homepage. That was the site responsible for our only negative review of consequence. But this issue received a resounding 5 of 5. I have to give a particularly loud shout out to Adam Dechanel for sticking with us despite his initial reaction to the final story arc.
