Showcase Presents: Supergirl Vol. 2 e-book

by Various,Jim Mooney


Showcase Presents: Supergirl Vol. 2 Paperback – December 16, 2008. I have read both volumes of SUPERGIRL in these Showcase books

Showcase Presents: Supergirl Vol. by Various (Author, Illustrator), Jim Mooney (Illustrator). I have read both volumes of SUPERGIRL in these Showcase books. Each book is more than 500 pages, and goes back to the original Supergirl, Argo City (the domed city that survived the destruction of Earth), her several year stay at the Midvale Orphanage, being adopted by the Danvers, and lets us see many other characters come and go. I read many, or most, of these stories when they first came out, and I really mourned it when THIS Supergirl died in the "Crisis on Infinite Earths".

Showcase Presents: Superman-Volume 2 is a treasure trove for us guys that grew up in the 60's. It collects stories from ACTION and SUPERMAN comics from November 1959 - April 1961. Artists Wayne Boring, Al Plastino, Kurt Schaffenberger, and Curt Swan (in my opinion Superman's best draftsman) are all featured.

Showcase Presents book. And it doesn't hurt to have Jim Mooney's art the whole time

Showcase Presents book. And it doesn't hurt to have Jim Mooney's art the whole time. Easily the best mix of craftsmanship artwork and re animations and weird/kooky stuff. Definitely worth the reading alone. He and Shuster were inducted into the comic book industry's Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 1992 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1993. Other books in the series. Showcase Presents: Supergirl (2 books). Books by Jerry Siegel.

I have read both volumes of SUPERGIRL in these Showcase books. Each book is more than 500 pages, and goes back to the original Supergirl, Argo City (the domed city that survived the destruction of Earth), her several year stay at the Midvale Orphanage, being adopted by the Danvers, and lets us see many other characters come and go.

I read many, or most, of these stories when they first came out, and I really mourned it when THIS Supergirl died in the "Crisis on Infinite Earths". I never enjoyed the later Supergirls as much as this one, but I gave each one a super-try.

Caveat: The comics inside the book are in black and white, but in my opinion, they do not detract from the stories. They could not have produced this book for such a low price if every page was in color.

If you're not sure if you'd enjoy this book, you might check your local library and see if you can borrow one of her books. If your library is part of the SCLENDS system (19 counties in South Carolina), you can borrow volumes one and two, because I have donated Volume One, and will donate Volume Two in a few days. I'm sure there are other states that have these books, too.

If you have books that you know won't bring you much if you try to sell them, do think about donating them to your local public library, so that others can benefit from your largesse.

I always wondered why Supergirl was created, since her powers are indentical to her cousin Superman. So it's a carbon copy of Superman devoted to girl fans. I guess Superboy was created for same reason, for youngsters, boy fans. Linda Lee gets parents and becomes Linda Danvers. No more annoying Linda Lee robot to substitute for her at orphanage when Linda works as Supergirl. But she is still second to Superman because readers are reminded that Superman is out in space, or somewhere else occupied, as if that is only reason Supergirl is needed. This isn't fair. Supergirl should be more than just someone to call upon only when Superman is unavailable. These stories are from Action Comics, basicly Superman's own title, so original readers were Superman followers. That's why Superman is in a lot of these stories. This volume is a good continuation to first volume, and are great for Supergirl fans, especailly girls.

Out of all the DC Showcase collections, I've enjoyed Supergirl the best! There was actually some character building going on, relationships, funky super animals (that I learned their back stories), romance, Supergirl being secretive about coming out of the closet with her powers, trying to super please Superman, her cousin. I was well-pleased even the goofy stories.

I love the Showcase Presents series!!! And I'm very, very happy to get Supergirl! I will enjoy bringing back memories from my childhood (even for issues I never read as a child). ????

And I appreciate the careful and secure packaging by Wares of The Coast for my "precious cargo". Thank you!

I started reading DC comics in 1957, and was an avid fan of the whole Superman-Batman-Justice League pantheon for over 20 years. I saw a lot of these stories when they first came out. It was really a trip to see them all again.

I bought this for my daughter for Christmas and ended up wishing I'd kept it for myself. :)

This book is a great value for the money with hundreds of pages of Supergirl stories from the 60s for under $20. But the problem is many of them are not very good.

Like her cousin, this version of Supergirl is gifted with a vast array of god-like powers not only able to fly, not only strong, but able to travel through time, manufacture anything she needs at super speed and has an endless array of advanced gadgets to do whatever her powers cannot.

But she spends her adventures worrying about things like finding Superman a wife, cheering up orphans and helping her parents around the house. The stories are very much products of their time and Supergirl is a stereotypical dutiful, pre-feminist girl. Some of the results are bizarre. In one story she finds herself cursed with the new power of 'fatal vision' that kills anyone she looks at. Trying to make the best of this she sets off to exterminate an alien race who were causing trouble.

Like Superman her origin is rooted in tragedy, her city survived the destruction of Krypton only to be destroyed when she was a teenager. But the writers apparently felt it was too much for a girl to lose her parents so she soon finds her parents miraculously survived which leads to an unrealistic war for her affections between her adoptive Earth parents and her super powered Kryptonian parents. The idea that maybe she could love two sets of parents isn't even considered.

Then there's the time she started dating her horse...

So young children will probably enjoy the stories, adults may like them in small doses but all in all there only limited entertainment to be had here.

But at least you get a lot for your money.

500 pages of Supergirl comics from the origin. Color would make it awesome but it would probably cost 10 times more too. It's a must for Supergirl fans like me. Buy #2 too. The art is way better than today's lazy artwork. Main reason I stopped reading comics. I'll stick with the old stuff like this gem.
Really enjoyed this book, especially since DC's current writers are essentially re-doing these stories with modern twists/ updates.
