THE BLACK ORDER MAKES THEIR MOVE! The former generals of Thanos have come for the reality stone. But thanks to everything Star has been through, she’s learned a lot about the power bonded to her. The Black Order expects to find a novice but instead will find a dragon. And no matter who wins this fight, one thing is for sure: The Marvel Universe is about to be a much more dangerous place…for everyone.

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 1, 2020

    This is a good ending to a series that further proves Star needs to exist and continue on in the Marvel universe. Thompson and company have done an excellent job making me want to learn more about this character and see her change and evolve. She's a complex character that may not make the same choices as the heroes, but that's sort of the point. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Jul 8, 2020

     Star #5 may be the end of this miniseries; its not the end for Star. As long as Reality Stone is bonded with Ripley Ryan, shes sure to pop up again in the larger Marvel universe.  Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jul 1, 2020

    Star #5 crafts a satisfying (if unsurprising) end to Ripley Ryan's story. It leaves the door wide open for future tales of the Infinity Stones and their unlikely new wielders. At present, this issue and this series might fly beneath the radar of people who aren't Captain Marvel or Kelly Thompson fans. But I suspect that when the next Infinity Whatsis takes shape, Star will stand out as one of the best bits of groundwork laid for it. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jul 5, 2020

    Star #5 was a fitting end to the first mini series for a new character. Kelly Thompson knows this character well, and will make us love her sooner or later. The pencils and colors are the cherry on top of the issue that makes it stand out further. Star is a hero we need to see more of! Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Jul 1, 2020

    The ultimate problem with this issue is that it takes the Black Order and reduces it down to a family. Having a super villain team that is also a family is not a new concept. It is however not necessary with a team as heartless and interesting as the Black Order has already been. Trying to create sympathy for some of the coolest villains in the Marvel universe is unnecessary. Some villains can just be villains. They can be extraordinary in their brand of evil, they do not have to be ordinary in their love for each other. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jul 1, 2020

    This was a disappointing finale to a mini-series that I was looking forward to reading. Everything felt rushed here to put the pieces into place for what is coming next for Star, but with that, Kelly Thompson never got to expand on her character fully. Maybe I expected too much.
