Supergirl #47 Pages

Instead of my usual waiting until it's way past relevance I figured I should post these. Plus it can show just how much work colorist Nei Ruffino put into these pages, and any compliments I get for the book should go to her as well. Sterling Gates wrote a really great script, so it was a blast doing the issue.

More pages:

The issue came out Wednesday (9-18), so it should still be in stores in case you missed it. Here's a few reviews. *Edit* Jeez, there are a lot of reviews, not that I'm complaining.

Supergirl #47

Better update soon, but figured I should post this.

Written by Sterling Gates; Art by Matt Camp; Cover by Joshua Middleton

Supergirl has finally brought Reactron back to New Krypton so he can be held accountable for murdering her father, Zor-El. While the debate about what to do with him rages among the people of New Krypton, the planet's ruler – and Supergirl's mother – remains unsure. Should Alura have Reactron executed? And will Supergirl allow it to happen if her mother decides to go that route?
