The Rundown: Supergirl finds herself on a new adventure when a young woman begins a quest for vengeance.
A young woman named Ruthye is dealing with the tragic murder of her unarmed father and how the man who did it will not face justice because he works for the king. Knowing that there is little she can do, she takes the sword the killer left and seeks out a champion to get revenge for her. After trying to hire a mercenary, she finds herself being hit and left with the sword stolen.
When a mysterious stranger stops the man and retrieves the sword, she tries to enlist the woman for help only to find out that she is drunk. When the woman awakens, Rutyhe is introduced to Supergirl. After initially refusing to take on the task of killing a man, Supergirl attempts to leave the planet, but the killer is alerted to their presence and the resulting fight will leave Supergirl stranded and seeking justice.

Telling it from Ruthye’s perspective is a great narrative touch that enhances the reader’s perspective on events and characters. The story has a great flow and is engaging to the reader. The writing is amazing and draws you in as the plot unfolds.
The Art: Evely delivers some beautifully detailed art throughout the issue. There are great character moments throughout and the action is brilliantly vibrant.
