    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Mar 27, 2020

    Kelly Thompson has proven herself a master wordsmith and the rest of the creative team have forged a visually stimulating work of art. There's a flashback scene with a particularly interesting style different from the rest of the book. I imagine that's where the multiple credited artists come in. I'm in this one for the long haul. Miss Thompson, please tell me this poor, fictional white lady is going to be ok. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - besottedgeek Mar 24, 2020

    STAR #3 builds upon the previous issue to become the best of the short series. The resolution to last issues main ordeal may feel a little cheap, but Kelly Thompson explains it in a believable way. The main art throughout is consistently great, and while the flashback art is off-putting in its stark difference, the narration within hammers home Ripley Ryans motivations. STAR is a series that has improved with each issue, and hopefully the trend continues. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Mar 25, 2020

    Star #3 abruptly ditches the "mystic cave" angle from the previous issue and lays out the protagonist's real-world challenges with admirable efficiency. Great character work in both words and art combine with some intriguing plot twists to keep a tight grip on the reader's interest. This issue sets the stage for an excellent climax, clarifying the players and the stakes without prematurely answering all the questions. Read Full Review
