Supergirl (Volume 1)
Starring: Kara Zor-El / Linda Lee as Supergirl. Supergirl's story continues from Adventure Comics #424. Issues #1-5 include a Zatanna back up feature.
Following a decade of back up action and three years headlining Adventure Comics, Supergirl finally starred in her own series. For the inaugural issue, scribe Cary Bates and artist Art Saaf enrolled Linda Danvers in Vandyre University. Following the murders of two of her fellow students, Supergirl surmised that drama instructor Basil Rasloff was the killer, for the victims were all in theatrical revivals of a film Rasloff had made famous. Supergirl prevented Rasloff's next murder before capturing the deranged instructor. For 10 issues, the "Maid of Might" continued flying solo, albeit with the occasional help of guest stars like Zatanna and Prez, until DC opted to merge her title with several others into the eponymously titled The Superman Family.
