But it's been almost four years years and still DC Comics haven't seen fit to allow Kara to continue her education. Walker and Jones have a multi-year series of mini-series planned out, taking Kara right through grade school and into high school. If those stories are as good as the original mini, readers are in for a treat. I certainly want to see, for starters, Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in the 9th Grade.
The first mini apparently wasn't a soaraway success - otherwise we'd be reading the 11th Grade stories by now. But it was a critical success, and seems to have been loved by all who read it. I'm sure that with the proper marketing push subsequent series would at least break even as periodicals, and more material would make for more collections to be sold in outlets other than comic book stores.
Given that Supergirl is among the most popular Hallowe'en characters for little girls, and Kara has recently been seen in the DC Nation cartoon strand, why not have a real crack at picking up sales in that market? Let's get the kids who love Supergirl actually reading her adventures; and not the adventures of the New 52 version, good as they are. No, let's give the girls a heroine they can more easily identify with - one for whom school is every bit as challenging as an alien invasion.
If you'd like to see Kara back in class, Supergirl fan supreme Valerie is running a letterwriting campaign to persuade DC Comics to think about greenlighting a second series, details here. And while letters may seem old-fashioned, there's no denying publishers take them more seriously than internet pleas. And waffles.
Who knows, we may get Kara educated yet!
