Quick thought on the conclusion of SUPERGIRL #49
I liked this issue a lot, and am relieved that Lana’s disease is indeed of an unnatural variety because I was a little worried about her (I didn’t really think they’d off her, but after Zor-El…!) I’m eager to see Lana’s metamorphosis next issue. My first thought upon seeing the final page was, well, this :) Somehow I suspect it won’t be anything as cute and awesome as Insect Queen (ah, the goofy fun-times of the Silver Age, where everyone got a turn at being a part-time hero). But I may not be completely off: Wikipedia reveals that a new Insect Queen was introduced in 2008 and Lana had contact with her, so maybe her strange condition is a delayed result of that.
Now I want to download some of those Superboy issues with Lana flying around as the Insect Queen ^_^
Next issue is #50. Should be big!
