    A Comic Book Blog - Victor Kutsenok Mar 11, 2011

    Another nice action packed issue. I like the quick origins of the Pride and the Witches. Gives you some nice background info. The pace of the issue was non-stop once again. This book hasn't given us a second to catch our breath and reflect on what we have seen. Every issue we get new characters and bigger battles. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Mar 9, 2011

    I've said it a few times, but this is so the best of the new Stan Lee titles at Boom! In fact, I got bored and stopped reading Soldier Zero and The Traveler, but I think Starborn is wedging itself onto my pull list because it is telling a Space Opera-type story that I can't really get anywhere else. It's true that we have Marvel Cosmic, but that is mostly a known universe. The fun of Space Opera is learning what is possible in a storytelling universe and that can only come with a new series.

    IGN - Mar 9, 2011

    Khary Randolph delivers yet another energetic issue. With the additional alien races the book continues to build a lush and complex universe with plenty of different elements. I'm absolutely in love with his design for the witches of arbor, whose simple yet elegant body structures evoke a sense of familiarity with the traditional alien character models. Starborn currently fills a small niche for science fiction and fantasy fans, but it needs to take a chance and shy away from overused techniques if it wants to keep readers interested.

    Major Spoilers - Larry King Mar 10, 2011

    Reading all four issues back to back in one sitting, I will say that this issue is a great capstone to the first arc, and fully paid off in the end. The writing is solid, the concept is quite different, without being wholly unrelatable, the artwork not only holds it's own, it flourishes within this concept.Overall the whole Starborn Universe is a massive undertaking, but it's not head scratchingly frustrating, and a Universe I can't wait to see where it takes me next.Final Verdict, Starborn #4 receives 3.5 Stars, out of 5.
