What’s the Use of Being Supergirl If I Can’t Even Get a Date?!

 

I love this vintage comic strip via Musings of an Inappropriate Woman.

Echos of the Supergirl complex can be heard in Clueless: “Like that book I read in 9th grade that said: ”tis a far, far better thing doing stuff for other people’… [but] I realised how much I wanted a boyfriend of my own.”

Elsewhere: [Musings of an Inappropriate Woman] Best of the Rest of the Internet.

  3. Hi Scarlett, I’m the guy who ran Context is For The Weak, which is now Keane On Comics – the Supergirl cover detail can now be found here: http://keaneoncomics.tumblr.com/post/971346269/yeah-but-your-cat-still-likes-you

    It’s a scan from a book entitled DC Cover Girls by Louise Simonson, which was a hardcover collection of cover artwork featuring Supergirl (obv.), Wonder Woman, Lois Lane, Catwoman, et al. Considering how this particular image seems to get a new lease on life every few months, I thought it best to make sure credit was given where it was due!
