Comic Art Friday: Happy birthday, Supergirl!
Supergirl turns 22 today.
No, not that Supergirl.
Twenty-two years ago today, The Daughter entered my world, and changed it forever.
I’ve called her Supergirl for years, because she often used to wear a pink hoodie with the Kryptonian shield emblazoned on the chest. Truth to tell, though, she’s really more of a Mary Marvel — like Mary, she’s a brunette, and also like Mary, she retains her youthful innocence and charm even when she transforms into a superheroine.
I hope you have a spectacularly wonderful birthday, Supergirl. You’ve earned it this year. And I hope and pray that you enjoy many, many more birthdays to come. I love you as much as a father can.
And that’s your Comic Art Friday.
