    It's fantastic having the Zodiac Starforce team back in action and they're better than ever. Cries of the Fire Prince has only just begun, but it's already fulfilling its promise of delivering more magical girl action and witty comedy with just a touch of drama and intrigue. And what intrigue! The Fire Prince has only just arrived, but from where and for what purpose? Only way to find out is to tune in next issue! Read Full Review

    I hated the idea of only ever getting four issues of Zodiac Starforce, and Cries of the Fire Prince #1 brings back all the magical girl charm of the first series with even stronger writing and artwork. Today's debut issue will undoubtedly delight longtime fans of the original miniseries, and this is a perfect time to catch up on the first volume before diving back into Panetta and Ganucheau's heartfelt take on a much-beloved genre.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 5, 2017

    Zodiac Starforce essentially provides the launching point for the story here with a few teases with what's being brought into the world toward the end, which means there's little to really say about it just yet. What the bulk of the book does is to reconnect us with the cast a little bit after the events of the previous miniseries and to show what changes in life have occurred since then. It's solidly done to get everything underway that will please existing fans but be entirely accessible to new fans as well. Panetta keeps it smooth and fun, albeit a little overstuffed in some ways, while Ganucheau's artwork and Stearn's color work gives it a great sense of life and vibrancy that has me quite interested to see what's in store with this run of the book.
