Supergirl & the Legion of Super-Heroes 32 cover
©DC Comics, Inc.

Issue 30 is the final one by writer Mark Waid and artist Barry Kitson, sadly. It’s been a great run, but both have moved on to other things. This issue wraps up many continued storylines, including that of The Wanderers, with lots of snappy dialogue, great characterization, massive explosions, and surprise twists. Well done.

Issues 31-32 begin a new run by writer Tony Bedard, with different artists on each issue: Kevin Sharpe and Robin Riggs on 31, and Dennis Calero on 32. Kind of an odd way to begin a run, but the art styles aren’t wildly divergent, so it works okay. Tony seems to have a good handle on the characters, and puts them in situations and perils I want to read more about, so I’ll stick around for a while on this title and see how it goes. I do miss the art by Kitson, but these guys aren’t bad.

    Tony Bedard is only on the title until #36. As of #37, Francis Manapul will be the new regular artist, and the writer will be…Jim Shooter! It’ll be interesting to see how he does with it again after all these years. (I’m amazed you hadn’t heard.)

    I’m glad you didn’t find the art style, at least in 31, to be that divergent. One of the things Robin tries to do is keep things consistent. I love his work over Kevin, even though lord love him Kevin can get a little fiddly. 🙂
