    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Feb 26, 2020

    Star is in a very precarious position right now. If she cant learn to control her newfound powers shell keep creating rips in the fabric of reality. Scarlet Witch can help her as best she can but if Ripley continues to let her anger and grief control her actions it wont be enough. With the very powerful people after the Reality Stone, Star needs to act fast or she might lose her life. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Feb 26, 2020

    Star #2 delivers powerfully on the heart-to-heart between novice reality-warper Star and the veteran Scarlet Witch. The art does better with the characters than the mostly-symbolic action they're engaged in, but that suits an introspective episode like this. We learn plenty about Star -- and an excellent twist unveils some serious antagonism she'll soon be facing. Read Full Review

    There is a lot in Star #2 that is really well executed from the intense plotting to the stunning visuals, but the most intriguing aspect is just how much the issue pulls the reader in and makes them care for Ripley's dire situation. Read Full Review

    Pina and Andrade deliver some beautiful art in this issue. I like the contrast in styles and how that plays out in both the A and B stories. There's some great action throughout and the characters look amazing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - besottedgeek Feb 26, 2020

    STAR #2 is a step in the right direction. Kelly Thompson continues to grow the character, and pairing Scarlet Witch with Ripley was inspired. The art is inconsistent at distances, but at close range is at times stunning. Even without the big reveal ending Thompson delivers, STAR #2 would be a book worth checking out. Read Full Review
