    Equal parts bleak and hopeful, this final issue of One-Star Squadron delivers the profundity I was hoping for with a Mark Russell comic. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 3, 2022

    Lieber does excellent work with the art in the issue. The characters shine visually as the story concentrates on their emotional states and the look of the art is perfect for the tone of the story itself. Read Full Review

    One-Star Squadron ends in a better place and offers more satisfaction than much of its journey, which provides an appropriate parallel for its own narrative and themes. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 3, 2022

    Russell's satire has felt a little darker, a little more caustic lately, and it doesn't work quite as well as some of his brilliant past work. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez May 3, 2022

    One-Star Squadron #6 ends the series as well as the series started - with a mix of one part satirical jokes that don't work, one part misery, and one part heart. The grounded art is acceptable for the story's dramatic elements, but neither the writing nor the art makes sense for these characters and the superhero world they inhabit. In retrospect, there is no point or entertainment value in this series, so chalk it up to a creator vanity piece that will likely never be remembered.6.5/10 Read Full Review
