    This is a great finale to a great series. I am going to seriously miss this book because it was a highlight of my pull list and one of the best DC projects right now. However, I don't think I can recommend the issue to people who haven't been reading the series simply because I don't know if those people would care about this particular one. It's a farewell and thank you to the fans. I do recommend that, if you haven't read this series, to go and buy the issues or the trade collections because it is worth every cent. Fans of this series and character should find a lot of enjoyment in this issue. I know I did. Read Full Review

    There were a million reasons for this book to end on a sad note, since it's ending too soon, but this is the best farewell a series could have. I actually felt glad for Koriand'r and the decision she was making. This is how every series should go out: with the character and the reader upbeat. “Now, let us see what new adventure is in store for us!” I'm standing and applauding the creators of this book.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 12, 2016

    Starfire was a really fun little treat that I looked forward to each month. While there were aspects of it that I thought could be done better I did like that they essentially tried to do a Harley Quinn kind of series for her in a way. Kori's a character that has had a long and rich history at DC Comics but is one that has been through so many variations over the years that she really needs a full on kind of reboot – yet you don't want to lose some of the magic that made her who she is. I liked the interpretation here and just felt that it needed a little more for the "hardcore" side to sync things up a bit. But overall Conner and Palmiotti had a lot of fun with it here and it showed, especially through the excellent artists that they had right through Charretier's perfect sendoff installment here.

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher May 17, 2016

    After Starfire #12, Conner and Palmiotti can now boldly claim that they rebuilt Starfire's character. They made her lovable beyond her innate sex appeal. It's a remarkable accomplishment in the grand scheme of superhero characters. When a female character can be both lovable and sexy, everybody wins. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway May 11, 2016

    The farewell issue of the series, wherein Starfire says farewell. All loose ends are tied up, and necessary bridges are burned, and in the final analysis we can say that this book did what it was supposed to: make Starfire a character that more people would want to read about. While the book itself didn't turn huge numbers, I think Kori's character redemption was real, and I expect something closer to this post-Rebirth than what we got prior to the maxi-series. As it has been for the previous eleven issues, the art in the final story is phenomenal, and if there can be only one legacy of this title, let it be Elsa Charretier doing more work for DC Comics. Because I would love to see this style on something like Green Lantern. Read Full Review

    Starfire was pretty much a mini-series. It was self-contained and worked well on its own. It was a more humor filled title without the level of ridiculousness that Harley Quinn is known for and the art was beautiful throughout the 12 issues. I enjoyed it for what it is and I liked how Palmiotti and Conner crafted a fun story for the fans and used guest characters sparingly. Definitely a sleeper hit. I hope we see more of Starfire during Rebirth, she deserves better than the porn-star persona Lobdell gave her during New 52's inception.

    I'm going to miss this series. Out of all the recent books I've read that take a more easy-going, jokey approach to Superhero comics, this one was my favorite, as it combined good humor with solid action, lovely art, and wonderful characters. I loved how it felt timeless instead of relaying on "Meme-Style" Humor, I loved how it brought a character I love from the cartoons and Post-New 52 books out from the rubble of her shattered reputation, and most of all, I loved this book's heart.

    What a great series this was. Funny, sweet, relaxed. It's a real shame to see it go, and no doubt the character development will all be wasted when Rebirth starts. We need more comics like starfire.
