    This book is not for everyone, but in its niche kernels of genius is something that'll satisfy readers of old school indie comics. While definitely rough at the finer seams, it's overall a relatively fun and breezy book. Read Full Review

    The saga of Starstorm dips away from focusing on the main character to introduce some possible major players into the mix. Readers will enjoy the throwback feel of this story as it combines many elements with its blossoming origin. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 28, 2023

    The actual design of Grants suit and the visual component of his powers are cool enough. At the heart of the comic, Grant actually seems like a pretty fun idea for a character. It kind of feels like the story for the comic book might have been cobbled together from Frank Millers Daredevil and Jim Shooters Star Brand and classic superhero teens like Spider-Man, but I all fits together well enough that Craigs really got something interesting in Starstorm. It just feels weird watching the thing take its first couple of shambling steps in its first couple of issues. Read Full Review

    After two issues, it's difficult to state what exactly The Savage Strength of Starstorm is about or why readers ought to take a chance on it. Read Full Review

    Sooooooo....... this was a fun little comic. Nothing huge here just classic teen superhero stuff. Not as bad as most stuff out there. The suit feels like a Dark Hawk/Rogue Sun style and the high school stuff reminds me of Riverdale. This is pretty basic feeling but it was fun and entertaining and in the end that's all I really wanted out of it.
