Random Reads: "A Rendezvous with Reality" by Harris, Weiss, and Rubinstein

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-philes! Here's a superbly illustrated Supergirl saga to kick off our week. The art team of Alan Weiss and Joe Rubinstein gave us a slick, hip-looking Supergirl to keep up with the disco-era Superman Family #186 (August 1977) was a part of. Writer Jack C. Harris was doing his darnedest to give us a Supergirl sci-fi epic (which included both her foster and real parents, a trio of Silver Age super-villains, and a mysterious and evil group called the Visitors), but was never allowed a regular art-team to give his epic the continuity it needed. To make matters worse, instead of a "now" art team like Weiss and Rubinstein, Harris was usually saddled with solid-but-unspectacular workhorses like Jack Abel, Don Heck, and Jose Delbo. With "A Rendezvous with Reality" Harris crams a lot of story into a mere 12 pages and is lookeeng goo-hood thanks to the Weiss/Rubinstein duo. Dig it!
