Captain's Library SUPERGIRL: THE MOVIE "Part 1"

How Kara Zor-El traveled to Earth...
...from the never-reprinted Supergirl Movie Special comic adaptation!
Will she like it on Earth?
Find out tomorrow on our "sister" blog Heroines!
Written by Joey Cavalieri, illustrated by Gray Morrow, this tale contains story elements not in the American theatrical release, since they were working from earlier versions of the film's script!
Here's a special treat.
The printing on the Supergirl Movie Special was, to put it bluntly, horrible.
DC was experimenting with ways to keep costs down, and one of them was switching from then-standard letterpress printing to less-expensive flexographic printing, which, unfortunately produced rather blotchy printing in solid color areas and loss of detail in linework.
(It was meant for use on cardboard, plastic, metal...almost everything else besides the newsprint that comic book interiors were printed on!)
Here's a few of the pages seen above, scanned from the original art...
