You are correct on both counts :)

Love Vampirella :P 

Supergirl is a strange one, in that, wikipedia has it listed as:


As Super-Girl:Superman #123 (August 1958)

As Supergirl: Action Comics #252 (May 1959)

(my emphasis)

So its either this year, or it was last year depending on how you accept it :)

Cool for spotting that, especially Vampirella :)

Peace

There was a "Super-girl" story (Jimmy Olson dreams up a Supergirl) in Superman #123. She's not Kara Zor-El and she goes away at the end of the issue. A lot of time this is billed as a "prototype Supergirl story" as in it was a story to float interest to see if readers wanted a Supergirl character.  The postive reaction resulted in Kara's appearence in Action 252.  That's why there is a double entry in Wikipedia as it depends on which one you want to count.  I generally go with "Supergirl first appeared in Action 252, as when people say "Supergirl" they're not talking about the character in Superman 123.  At the same time, she was "Super-girl" and billed as "The Girl of Steel".

It is interesting that her costume is more like modern Supergirl's than Kara's original one.  She's also seems a bit older than the original high school teenager Kara. Though Kara was a Master's graduate who'd had several jobs after grauduating when she eventually died during Crisis in 1985.  She was also killed (almost a direct quote) because the editor in charge viewed her as "just Superman in a skirt" and thereore not a character they needed to keep around.  (Which is why that's the first question any show/story about Supergirl needs to answer: how is she different from Superman.)

There does seem to be a few things going on for Vampirella. I remembered something involving Gail Simone, so I googled:

Kickstarter w/ some goodies.  It's from Dynamite. 

www.kickstarter.com/projects/dynamiteent/50-years-of-vampirella


Gail Simone is writing a story to be run in Playboy for the 50th Anniversary:

www.cbr.com/vampirella-playboy-special-50th-anniversary-story/

Christopher Priest is going to writing the comic and there was  Free Comic Book day preview of it.

www.bleedingcool.com/2019/02/02/priest-w...free-comic-book-day/

And as I have to concur: good catch on both of these. ;-)

R5 your knowledge about Supergirl is just amazing ~ I don't follow anything Tumblr anymore so I'm glad you posted this here.  Thank-you.  Great read and fun list - it really is 60 fascinating things.

There have been a lot of Supergirls over the years, but it's Kara Zor El of Argo City that I've always loved. She's an interesting soul given her upbringing on a Kryptonian colony. 

Unlike Kal El, she remembers what it was like to live in the hyper-scientific and socially-advanced Kryptonian culture. It was a crushing shock for her to lose her world and everyone on it. Then, as a mid-teen girl, to fly across the galaxy in a tiny ship to crash on a strange and relatively primitive planet. And there to amazingly gain vast powers and abilities. And responsibilities. 

And then be pushed around and diminished by her dick of a cousin for a few years. 

No wonder she's had a hard time figuring out how to be Linda Lee Danvers and Supergirl, because she's not either of them. She's Kara Zor El and she is a lost and lonely girl from another world who is doing the best she can here, but she's very aware of faking it.

Kal El is Clark Kent, and he's grounded on Earth. It's all he knows. Kal El is just a name. He does not miss a world or an identity he never knew. 

Kara does. Every day. She remembers everything.
