    This is the gold standard for fun and action in comics. Incredible characters and lots of action make this a winning book, time and time again. This is the book you show people who have never read a comic. Recommended. Read Full Review

    It's not a series for everyone, but if you're ready for a series that has confidence in its characters and doesn't feel rushed and forced to make the characters into something they're not, then you should give this one a try. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Nov 12, 2015

    Starfire continues to be an interesting series to read simply because I have no idea where it'll go next. I love the quirky sense of humor and the whole fish out of water element that Kori brings to it – and the way that others realize it and kind of just run with it. The story structure still just makes me feel a little weird while reading it and trying to process it, but there's just so many small moments to like that it's easy to simply enjoy it. Which is even easier with what the art and color team here does. The book runs the gamut of places, people and situations and just knocks it out of the park with ease. I continue to adore the colors here and it reminds me why I buy this one digitally as the print edition just doesn't feel anywhere near as beautiful and rich with the colors and details.

    The Rainbow Hub - Logan Dalton Nov 12, 2015

    Palmiotti and Conner also give her incredibly threatening dialogue as she vows to kill Kragg if he hurts the people of Key West, who she has come to know, love, and protect in the first arc of Starfire. And Kori definitely seems to mean it as she throws Kragg around like a rag doll and even cuts him with his own blade before relenting and having an important character morality establishment scene when she says that she doesn't mean “eye for an eye” literally before banishing him off to space. Starfire is a character, who can become violent when people she love are threatened, but she always looks back at the light before plunging into the abyss. Her transformation from pancake related breakfast chatter to punching aliens in the face seems instantaneous, but is rooted in her personality in what could just be an action Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 14, 2015

    This was another fun, solid entry in the Starfire series. We finally see what happens when that alien bounty hunt comes to town, and Kori does not disappoint. Read Full Review

    This issue of Starfire actually surprised me with how little nonsense it threw into the story and how it seemed to rely more on the strength of the character and the past she's desperately trying to leave behind, which I hope continues from here on out because those are the type of stories that I'm interested in.  The art was spectacular as always and I see a shining light here, showing us what this series could become in the future.

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Nov 18, 2015

    While Starfire is still loveable, the story is dull. It's uninspired and doesn't take advantage of potentially cool ideas. I wanted to know more about this doctor and he's carded aside for a useless bounty hunter. The issue is just disappointing. Read Full Review

    A very action-packed issue that shows Kori's more heroic side, and what she's capable of when the people close to her are in danger. "Beware the nice ones" indeed.

    One of my favorite titles in my pull list. Lupacchino's art is consistently good and the quirky storytelling of Conner/Palmiotti keeps things interesting but lighthearted. This issue wasn't as memorable as previous issues and there weren't as many switchbacks between various subplots but a surprise guest at the end makes me excited for the next few issues. Yes, everyone's favorite former Boy Wonder is back in the picture and that's always a good thing. You stay classy, Dick Grayson.
