We Have Already Seen...

...we haven't seen the situation this somewhat misleading cover by Bob Oksner portrays, but we have seen both Supergirl and Zatanna travel (separately) to the Himalayas to find a missing Peace Corps volunteer they both met (separately, at different times) and both (separately) became infatuated with...
So, I guess they should have let him die?
I'll never understand women...in stories written by men!

Countdown to Halloween 2020 SUPERGIRL "Sinister Snowman" Part 1

Yes, you read it right...

...this tale is not from Adventure Comics, but the Girl of Steel's first, short-lived and little-reprinted Bronze Age series!
"Turn to Part 2"...
TOMORROW!
This never-reprinted tale by writer Cary Bates, penciler Art Saff, and inker Vince Colletta, from DC's Supergirl #7 (1973) is a Bronze Age throwback to the Silver Age!
A literally "out of nowhere" infatuation/romance for not one but two heroines!
Magic being treated as "unexplained science"!
("Any sufficiently-advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic!" --Arthur C Clarke)
Some really-unlikely coincidences, like both Supergirl and Zatanna deciding at that exact moment to check of on Tony....

Countdown to Halloween 2020 ADVENTURE COMICS: SUPERGIRL "Demon Fire!"

We Have Already Seen...

...attempting to stop a giant, sword-wielding woman warrior from destroying San Francisco, the Girl of Steel is knocked out.
Then the warrioress, separates Kara's soul/astral self/spirit from her body and transports her to a pocket dimension within Supergirl's inert form which is being destroyed by the heroine's innate goodness!
Yeah, I know it doesn't make much sense, but go with it...
Sadly, her relationship with Geoff only lasted three more issues, when she quit the TV station and her strip left Adventure Comics for its' own book...which leads us into...
Next Week
We End the Countdown to Halloween 2020's Mystical Adventures of Supergirl blogathon with a story guest-starring one of DC's most powerful magicians!

Countdown to Halloween 2020 ADVENTURE COMICS: SUPERGIRL "Demon Spawn"

You Want Demons?
Soul-Sucking Possession?
Mystic Battles?

You Got It!
Mike Sekowsky returns (sadly, only as the penciler) for this tale of cosmic terror! 
The Mystical Mayhem Continues...
TOMORROW!
(Here's a preview...)

Though Sekowsky was no longer the writer/editor/illustrator, the then-current creatives felt his "touch" was needed, and he returned to pencil three of of the final four issues of Supergirl's stint in Adventure Comics!
This never-reprinted story from DC's Adventure Comics #421 (1972) was the last of the Gothic/horror tales in the CW's Favorite Heroine's strip.
The two remaining stories were a re-do of King Kong (with the Girl of Steel as Fay Wray) and a mind-controlled Superman against Supergirl and the Justice League!

Countdown to Halloween 2020 ADVENTURE COMICS: SUPERGIRL "All Men are But Slaves!" Conclusion

When Last We Left the CW's favorite super-heroine...

Transported to a dimension where the laws of physics don't always apply, the Girl of Steel seeks to rescue a father and son who've been kidnapped by a society of female chauvinists...
Will, as con pundit Rush Limbaugh has speculated, "Feminazis" will rise up and conquer the Earth?
BTW, if you miss the really-Gothic stories, be here next week for a tale of demons and soul-sucking!
And out apologies for the delay in posting.
This new Blogger interface is unbelievably-buggy, sometimes not allowing us to load images!
