Dear Mr. Bedard,
Great job on your last issue of Supergirl! But, of course, I am really sad to see it end. You have done such a SUPER job with your portrayal of Kara. I love that you wrote her as a teenage girl, and without all the silly stereotypes and phrases. Thank You for not dumbing down Kara! Your dialogue for her is so believable! Also, I really just loved seeing Kara do all the heroic stuff such as lifting up that train Equus dropped on her, and tossing it into space!
I must say also that I truly enjoyed reading the final couple of pages featuring Kal and Kara. I canít praise this scene enough! I just love the way Kara expresses her view that she does not need Kalís validation, that she is learning even if it is the hard way, and that she wants to be a family. Then Kal tells her he knows Kara is doing fine and that even though she made a mistake she bounced back to do some good in Washington. This shows that Kara does indeed have a backbone! She is not afraid to express her opinions. And she is so tough, kindhearted, and really wants to do the right thing! I love all these things about the character. Kara is a Super Ö Girl! She is not Superman in a skirt, but rather a spirited teenager who has the same powers as her cousin. Kara is her own person.
Finally, I really just want to praise Renato Guedesí art again! He makes Kara look human, and like a real teenage girl with so much personality! It really is so refreshing to see some Supergirl art that concentrates on defining her character rather than her sexuality.
Great job Mr. Bedard and Mr. Guedes! Your work sets a path that hopefully the next creative team will expand upon while making it their own. Your work also makes me feel so much more positive about Karaís future in the comics, and I plan on continuing buying the Supergirl title.
