Legendary comics writer Geoff Johns returns to his breakthrough hero, Stargirl, in this special one-shot illustrated by Todd Nauck!
Courtney Whitmore’s spring break plans aren’t like your average high schooler’s. Instead of hanging out with friends, she’s heading out on an adventure with her stepfather, Pat Dugan, a.k.a. S.T.R.I.P.E., and teaming up with his former team, the Seven Soldiers of Victory! The Soldiers are forced to reunite again to unearth the secret eighth Soldier of Victory, but what other secrets lie buried, and what does it all mean for Courtney’s future as Stargirl?

    This special was an exceptional primer for Stargirl and the legacy character corner of the Universe. Hopefully it leads to much more from DC in 2021 and beyond. Read Full Review

    Stargirl Spring Break Special #1 is the quintessence of everything good superhero comics should be. It is bright. It is hopeful. It honors the past while acknowledging we can be better today in building a better tomorrow. It is also one heck of a read that will leave you wanting more. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox May 28, 2021

    This feels like a return to form for writer Johns and his early DC work but still hints at the epic long-form writer he is today with the cliffhanger and reset of character stories back to fresher times. As he diversifies his comic output, it's good to see he still remembers how it began. I don't normally give such high scores to DC characters but this is a clean 100%. Read Full Review

    Overall, this book has a nice light tone to it and feels like a return to form for Johns and his early DC work before he became the epic long-form writer he is today. As he diversifies his comic output, it's good to see he still remembers how it began. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 25, 2021

    While you could simply look at this as a fun Stargirl Special, this issue does a ton to bring the Seven Soldiers of Victory into the modern age in a story that allows their timelines to make sense in a world where "Everything Matters". We've got amazing art throughout and a story that sets things up for Courtney Whitmore going forward and even though I would have liked more time and page space to allow the Seven Soldiers to really be fleshed out for new readers, not to mention concepts, I had a lot of fun with this book and look forward to what the future brings with the characters involved.

    But Why Tho? - Jason Flatt May 25, 2021

    Stargirl: Spring Break #1is nothing like what the title would suggest. While the art style matches a teen drama, the plot is a high-intensity action thriller filled with time shenanigans and severe emotional stakes. It's a good story though with amazing coloring, especially throughout the lengthy final action sequence. Read Full Review
