    But Why Tho? - Jason Flatt Jan 1, 1970

    Flavor Girls #1is an excellent beginning to what is poised to be an exciting story in a world equal parts expansive and charming. While I don't feel like I know the characters particularly well yet after one issue, they at least strike me as strong exhibitions of classic archetypes who will offer all the charm inherent in those types of characters. I'm very excited for more and hope that its short run can fulfill the expectations this opening issue has set up. Read Full Review

    Despite the issues with the lettering, Flavor Girls #1 is a big hit that will appeal to fans of magical girl media (Sailor Moon, Tokyo Mew Mew) and fans of superhero teams (The Justice League, X-Men.) And with beautiful art in addition to unique character concepts, Flavor Girls #1 is a can't-miss series.  Read Full Review

    Locatelli-Kournwsky's art also feels like a Studio Ghibli fever dream in the best possible way, all of which culminate to create a pleasant surprise of a first issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Curtis Jul 13, 2022

    Overall, the premise is fun and has the makings of an empowering story for girls. Yet, the first issue runs out of steam and overloads itself with the wrong details. Hopefully the next issues make for a well-rounded adventure. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Christopher Egan Jul 14, 2022

    A fun, bubblegum teen superhero manga adventure that is unfortunately far too over-stuffed for its own good. Read Full Review
