Collects the Supergirl stories from Action Comics #285-307.

Supergirl’s Silver Age adventures continue in this new title, collecting these stories in trade paperback for the first time. This 384 page-softcover takes us to the end of the Omnibus volume 1, so DC is clearly planning on reprinting Supergirl’s Silver Age run in 4 paperback collections, at a rate of one per year.

The placeholder cover provided to book retailers was previously used on Supergirl Showcase Vol. 2. Presumably we’ll get another nice Michael Cho cover on the final product, in line with the other Silver Age trade paperbacks.
