    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Jan 1, 1970

    Stargirl The Lost Children #1 starts with great affection for every character involved, lays the groundwork for cool winter mystery reading, and aims to put several heroes on the DC map. No small mountains are being climbed here. I love the opening salvo for the story, art, colors, letters, and overall vivacity. If you love the show, the Golden Age of comics, Green Arrow, or are looking for something new to put into your bin, choose this one. Read Full Review

    Geoff Johns and Todd Nauck are back with mystery and adventure as we look for The Lost Children. They are using elements from all across the DCU, including newly discovered ones, to make a fun, entertaining miniseries that rejuvenates the Golden Age. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Nov 15, 2022

    Stargirl: The Lost Children #1 is pure, wholesome superhero fun from start to finish. Johns's writing lays out a near-perfect setup for a larger mystery that spans decades, and Hauck's art is spectacular. Read Full Review

    There is a lot going on here, and most of it is very good. Courtney's own supporting cast seems to get a bit of short shift this issue, but her friendship with Emiko is a lot of fun. This is a great start and I can't wait to see where the cliffhanger goes. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 15, 2022

    This was an encouraging debut for this six-issue mini-series. While Johns end game for these lost legacy heroes is still in question, the mystery in getting there is intriguing. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Nov 16, 2022

    Stargirls back in her own book, or rather her own teen team thats in the development stage, that looks to be filled with teen sidekicks of Golden Age, as well as their younger legacy characters here, building around a mystery that goes 80 years back. Court and Emiko are fun, and Johns handles the family chemistry well here. As a continuity buff, its always a treat reading stories by Johns, Waid, or Busiek, who really know their stuff. Add in Naucks penchant for drawing young characters young. If this team can make this mystery something to draw readers in, this could be a big hit for DC. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Nov 16, 2022

    If you liked last week's The New Golden Age #1, then Stargirl: The Lost Children #1 is a perfect follow up. Fans of the Stargirl TV show will find something familiar, even if some aspects aren't familiar, it's hard to keep the spunky Courtney/ Emiko duo away from an intriguing mystery! The nostalgia for Golden Age legacy goes beyond the simple emotion that is evoked but adds something that's been missing from the DC Comics comic book universe for too long, a tangible sense of history and interrelated characters and stories.

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Nov 17, 2022

    This first chapter of Stargirl: The Lost Children is a conflicted book, but that mirrors the conflict in the heart of DC Comics. I think most readers are tired of big events and the books I hear discussed most enthusiastically are the ones unconnected to big events. Yet it is apparently the big event books that drive the sales of the monthly series, if not the trade collections. I don't know what the answer is. All I know is that there were parts of this book I enjoyed very much, though they made me wish for a series that doesn't exist on our Earth. Read Full Review
