Just picked up my first silver age Supergirl comic today- Adventure Comics #381.  Pretty bad shape, but you can't expect too good condition from a 35 year old comic.  

Anyway, it was a decent enough read- fluffy, but I didn't expect too much in terms of story.  What I did get was a small taste of was how earnest and likeable a character Supergirl could be, which is pretty much why I bought it anyway.  I liked how she just used her powers sparingly and only when necessary, and she didn't just beat up villans but really tried to solve the crime.  Plus there was a nifty Batgirl cameo.

Strange enough, Adventure Comics #381 was also my first Supergirl story.  I got that a LONG time ago (summer 1969) along with a handful of other comics when I was sick -- possibly with chicken pox.  I still have that issue.

"The Supergirl Gang" was Supergirl's first solo story in Adventure Comics.  It was a great read back then, and it's among Kara's better Adventure stories.  The inclusion of Batgirl was a nice touch.

Actually, the Mike Sekowsky Supergirl stories that came a couple of years later were a LOT better than that.  They turned me into a diehard Supergirl fan.  The Joe Orlando-edited ADVENTURE stories that followed his run were also pretty good.  It's when they shunted her into her own book that the lame-o scripting returned, and she never totally recovered from that.  

(Except--ahem!--when I'm writing fanfic about her. ;-))

I'm a BIG writer of fanfic, much of it about Supergirl but covering lots of characters in lots of comic universes.  Check the stories out at and at .
