Thoughts:
I didn’t read the previous Supergirl books, so I have no idea why Kara Zor-El is so angry. Frankly though, I don’t care since it’s not really necessary to know all the details, which, in true comic book form, I’m sure are convoluted and contrived.
All I know is that she is in full rage mode until she finally snaps and becomes a Red Lantern, and it seems like that’s all I needed to know.

The writers introduce Lobo into the graphic novel Supergirl Vol. 5: Red Daughter of Krypton by Michael Alan Nelson (illustrated by Chad Hardin, Diogenes Neves, and Paulo Siqueira), a fascinating story which really moves the story forward and not just a cheap trick to use a popular character. The Lobo story line helps the narrative smoothly transition from a Supergirl, to a Red Lantern Supergirl.

I enjoyed the art, it was consistent, expressive and move the story along without distractions or getting in the way. This was a really fun comic, but for all its length and great story telling… we don’t get the ending!

Synopsis:
The New 52 Supergirl hates everyone. It is no wonder that the Red Lantern ring finally found her, creating one of the most powerful beings in the DC Universe.
