One of the most phenomenal series to come out of DC Comics’ Rebirth lineup has been Supergirl: Being Super. Written by This One Summer‘s Mariko Tamaki and illustrated by Lady Killer‘s Joelle Jones, this book follows a teenaged Kara who’s slightly different than the one we’re used to seeing from older comics or the CBS television show. In this incarnation, Kara doesn’t have to deal with aliens, government conspiracies, or world-ending threats. Yeah, she still has incredible powers, but at heart, this version of Kara is a small town girl with loving family and friends who’s searching for her place in the world.
Last month’s installment ended on a huge cliffhanger as one of Kara’s closest friends and many members of her hometown faced mortal peril. Was Kara able to save the day? Find out in The Comics Beat’s exclusive preview of Supergirl: Being Super #2.

Midvale has been torn apart by a devastating earthquake, and the death toll has hit Kara Danvers hard. As she begins to put the pieces of her life back together, Kara’s developing powers kick into high gear, and her memories of a world that shouldn’t exist begin to surface.
