    Stargirl: The Lost Children #3 lacks the wild punch of an action comic but delivers with some Golden Age feels. It adds an intriguing bite to munch on with the time-displaced storyline and mixes it all up with a lighthearted, entertaining theme that will certainly keep the interests of the classic fans. This series is meant for any long-standing, diehard comic book lover whos a true fan. Its steeped with history and wrapped with some amazing art that pays perfect homage to the past but also connects it to the current artistry found in comics today. I cant recommend Stargirl: The Lost Children #3, as well as this series, enough. The new or average fan may have to do some internet sleuthing to figure out who all these characters are and where they were last seen. But trust me, itll be worth it! Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 18, 2023

    The mini-series is now halfway through. With all the introductions well and fully handled, Johns and company can go about the business of diving into the heart of the action, which should be a lot of fun. Once things really get going, the storys momentum should kick in and take things in an enjoyable direction moving forward. Theres real potential in the sidekicks getting off the island and moving into the rest of the DC Universe. Johns has done a nice job of making an engaging ensemble that should be fun if they manage to make it beyond the mini-series. Read Full Review

    It's fun, and there's nothing wrong with that. You can still have a great comic even if it isn't earth shattering or genre melting. Stargirl: The Lost Children #3 is a fun comic that can be enjoyed by all ages. It has the right elements that recall the great comics of the Bronze Age. Not only does this series throwback to older characters, but it utilizes storytelling and tone that is from a less complicated time. Read Full Review
