    Liebers art perfectly captures the tone of this series and the expressive characters draw in the reader visually. Read Full Review

    It's overall a solid issue, although it feels more like Russell riffing on tech issues than telling an actual story with these characters. Read Full Review

    DC Comics' ONE-STAR SQUADRON #4 is depressingly aware of the facts. Success is a commodity that's hoarded by a few, and shared with no one. In ONE-STAR SQUADRON, even legendary Justice Leaguers have to figure out where next month's rent is coming from. This would be a hard pill to swallow if it weren't delivered with so many laughs.

    The themes begin to solidify and the satire is stronger than ever as we gear up for the end of One-Star Squadron. Read Full Review

    If it weren't for a handful of big laughs, specifically one about "corporate art," One-Star Squadron would simply land with a thud. Instead, it functions as a curiosity worth discussing as much for what is absent as what is present. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Mar 1, 2022

    One-Star Squadron #4 is a sad, spiritually ugly, depressing continuation of a story that (I suppose) is intended to be biting satire. However, the jokes don't land, the satire is just mean-spirited, and the one bright spot from the first issue (Gangbuster) finally returns only to be shuffled off with a Trick-or-Treat moment gone wrong. Somebody, please put this misery out of its misery. Read Full Review
