From the vaults. Supergirl #59 The Final Issue.

I almost made this my christmas card, LOL.



I've been trying to figure out what to say about this issue. What I could say about the art and the time but I keep falling short of the proper grandeur I keep reaching for.

I think there really is only one way to approach this.
Thank you.
Thank You Sterling, for being one of the best creative partners I've ever had. Thank you Keith Champagne, Jon Sibal, Marc Deering, John Dell and Robin Riggs for keeping up with my maddening exponentially growing obsession with detail. Thank You Nei Ruffino, Blond and Tom Chu for the beautiful color work you did. Thank you to all of the letterers who worked on the series. Thank you Nachie Castro, Wil Moss and Matt Idelson for showing faith, allowing me to experiment visually and pushing me to imrpove.
Most of all, Thank you Supergirl fans, for the love and occasional ire that you showed me over the years.

We wanted to bookend the series and I think the matching splashes from issue #34 and issue #59 say it all, don't you?

  1. Thank YOU, Jamal, for contributing to an amazing run on Supergirl. Your art is among the best I've seen on her. I really miss it.
