Unlike her cousin Superman, Supergirl arrived on Earth from her dead home planet of Krypton fully grown, fully powered and totally confused. Unable to speak anything but her native tongue of Kryptonese, unsure of how she arrived on Earth, and distrustful of the now-adult Superman, Supergirl truly is alone in the world.
When Kara is quickly befriended by a Scottish punk rocker named Siobhan—who can mysteriously speak Kryptonese—she’s getting more than a best friend out of the deal. She’s also getting a new ally and an introduction to the strangest enemy she’s ever faced--the supernatural Black Banshee. But what is Siobhan’s link to this new, immortal threat?
The writing team of Michael Green (Heroes) and Mike Johnson (SUPERMAN/BATMAN), with art by Mahmud Asrar (Dynamo 5) and George Pérez (JLA), continue the adventures of the Girl of Steel as finds her place on a planet that fears her in Supergirl: Girl in the World (collecting issues #0, 8-12).

It was nice to see some back story of how Kara was sent to earth. Kara made a friend that can speak her language. At the end of the day, it was a bit of a letdown.
The return of Supergirl has proven great. She has always been one of my favourites since my teens and she was somewhat too infrequent for me but here her revival has done her great justice and this sectond book is great both visually and from the storyline.
The story so far is interesting. I thought they might make the TV show based on the comic series unfortunately not. The TV show stinks. The comic book series so far is interesting...
