Supergirl @ 50

The current DC Comics version of Supergirl releases it's 50th issue in February.
Though I stopped collecting the title a while back, I will be picking up this special celebratory 50th issue.
The character of Supergirl is also celebrating her 50th Year in comics, having first appeared in Action Comics #252 (May 1959).
As part of this anniversary celebration, SUPERGIRL film actress Helen Slater will be contributing a story that looks into a day in the life of the Girl of Steel.The cover to this extra-sized extravaganza will be by the late Michael Turner, who tragically passed away last year at the age of 37. While I was never a big fan of his elf-like female characters, his work on Kara helped define her for a new generation.
