    These three are a phenomenal team and I can't wait to see where they go with this. So trust me this book is a definite go out and get quick before they are all gone. in the end you will be rooting for Star-Lord hoping that he will find what he misses so much in the multi layered work that is Battleworld.

    With Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde #1, a fresh creative team's finally managed to wring out some fun from the interminably grim dystopia that Battleworld often seems. Next-level artwork and a great script make this issue not to be missed. Read Full Review

    It's good to know that within the overall dire circumstances of Battleworld, the patchwork planet can still serve as an outlet to breezy, good-hearted stories such as this. Sam Humphries' splendid character work for both Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde continues here but it's Alti Firmansyah's fantastic Disney-inspired artwork that makes this series a rare treat for both StarKat fans and regular Marvel fans alike.

    From the cover of this book, this is not the story I was expecting to be told with Peter and Kitty…but I loved every minute of this. The familiarity from Peter, the art work and colors (I can't say enough about them) and just the overall light tone of this book made it a great read for me and I cannot wait for the next issue.

    Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde is a Disney movie of a comic -- and that's not just because Peter Quill spends half the issue singing Little Mermaid songs. Read Full Review

    STAR-LORD AND KITTY PRYDE #1 is one of the best issues to come out of Marvel's “Secret Wars” storyline so far. While it's plot is a bit exposition heavy at the start, it eventually starts moving at a brisk pace, with very strong characters and fun art. If the darkness of most of Battleworld is bringing you down, I'd definitely recommend giving this issue a read. Read Full Review

    ComicWow!TV - Bhavna Bakshi Jul 24, 2015

    This is probably the most “out there” miniseries in the Secret Wars bunch of books so far. It is also one of the most engaging and entertaining. It’s not only a classic relationship for long time readers and supporters of Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde, but an inviting and fun book for new readers. No matter which you are, you’ve got to check out this book. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Brandon Borzelli Jul 25, 2015

    Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde is a fun read. One is a survivor of the Marvel Universe and the other is not. One is looking to pick up their romantic relationship where they left off while the other has no idea who the other is. The comic is a fast read, with strong characters, solid action and a good hook at the end. The artwork is stellar and helps elevate this to another level. Overall, the book is distant from Secret Wars, but that might serve it well. This is worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Evan Moore Jul 27, 2015

    I give the book a 4 overall. I really like the story, by Sam Humphries, but the art, by Alti Firmansyah, is not quite my cup of tea. It's good looking and technically sound artwork, but it kind of reminds me of Disney animation, and is just not a look I like for comics, personally. Read Full Review

    Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde #1 is here and within its glossy pages lie what can best be described as a great episode of Star Trek: the Next Generation; you know the ones that take place entirely on the holo-deck and have Data playing Sherlock Holmes? Read Full Review

    GWW - Danny Benavides Jul 30, 2015

    If you are a fan of either Kitty Pryde or Star-Lord, or looking for a break from the destruction going on in majority of other Secret Wars issues out, this is worth reading. At the same time, if you do decide to skip it, you wouldn't be missing much. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jul 22, 2015

    A nice opening issue to establish the characters but it's so darn slow you won't miss much if you do skip it. That said it has a certain Disney cartoon charm many will like. Read Full Review

    Between the striking artwork and some smart moves from Humphries - including a great bit about luck-infused knifes made from the bones of Longshot - Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde is a surprisingly effective book. While it's unclear if the murky setting of Battleworld might undermine this book's plot, there's something here, something about this unlikely couple finding their way back to each other once more, that gives this book its potential. Here's hoping it reaches it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Herald - Matt Lehn Jul 29, 2015

    It seems Humphries and company intend a star-crossed rom-com with a hint of Midnight Run. That said, this issue is deceptively subtle in the route it takes getting underway. So far, we're treated to an ultra-swanky affair yet the current tenor reads more as an adversarial "Vs." than as a cooperative "And" (but that's how all great love stories start, right?). Featuring the "prime" Peter Quill, there's no question this story "counts" however it's opting for light-hearted larfs over it's potential for over-the-top drama and deep introspection. Not a perfect opener but amusing and beautifully constructed. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Jul 29, 2015

    The art by Alti Firmansyah is a nice style choice for the tone of the story. His pencils are clean and almost cartoon like, but can still invoke that sense of seriousness when they need to. The colors by Jessica Kholinne are bright which also gives the story that more light-hearted feel. Despite Star-Lord being out of character in the choices that he's made, it's still a fun first issue that entertained me until the end. I'm not sure where the story is headed and if Peter's journey will lead to bigger things within Secret Wars, but I'm also not sure if that's what this series is about or if that was the intention. So far, Humphries and Firmansyah are telling a solid story and I'm ok with that. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Jul 27, 2015

    "Star-Lord and Kitty Pryde" #1 is a charming beginning with strong humor, but future issues will need much more in the way of Kitty's characterization for the central romance to (re)ignite. Read Full Review
