    Starfire hits another installment where it has some wonderful light moments, some silliness, and just a touch of what's going on with Kori and Sol as Stella can't help but ask. Most of the book revolves around the girls and not talk about guys, which is good as they're just trying to get away from everything. There's a lightness to it that works and the small bits of Atlee's home that we get to see is pretty nice, though I hope to see a lot more. Charretier looks like she's capturing the tone and style of the book well, which Hi-Fi continues to just make ever more amazing with the coloring job done on it that shines digitally. It's a solid enough book yet one that I still just feel like it doesn't click with me as well as it should. Read Full Review

    This is a very good issue. Most of it focuses on the characters just talking to each other like most of the series which is still engaging. This is a great set of characters that I love more with each issue. I am sad that these characters probably won't survive the Rebirth but at least we have them here. Charretier makes a great replacement on the art and we get to see Syl'Khee. I recommend picking this issue up; it's definitely worth a read. Read Full Review

    This issue would have been great if it was all bonding all the time, with a little royal turmoil thrown in for kicks. Conner and Palmiotti are great with characters, but their Starfire never really made a memorable mark. Read Full Review

    Another issue jam-packedwith fluff where very little happens. The art by Elsa Charretier is really awesome and I'd love to see more of it. Um,what else can I say about this book without any spoilers? There are lots ofcool monsters in it. Also Starfire and Stella have a heart-to-heart, which wasnice to see. Do Tamaranians even have hearts? I bet they actually have like anuclear core or something. Anyway, this book ends in three issues, so if youhaven't checked it out yet, you can keep not checking it out. But if you havebeen enjoying it, why not stick around until the end? Read Full Review

    As soon as I buy an issue of this, I find out it's to be cancelled. Why can DC let an "ongoing" series do that? This cynical rebooting every other year, with a bunch of no. 1's for the fans will backfire one of these days. I rather like the comic itself. Not much went on, but the characters seemed to be fleshed out and the art was good. I would have put it on my pull list, but there is no point now.
