Good start for a character we know so little about. Wish we could have learned more about her this issue.

The story was solid. Art fit the tone perfectly.
The lettering was amazing. Lettering can really add subtext to a story if done properly and this is an example of that.

This has by far been the most consistently enjoyable comic I have read all year.
Many comics have there high and low points but I can always count on Justice League Dark for a bone chillingly enjoyable comic.

I really enjoyed this issue.

Ripley Ryan as Star was SUPER obvious, I would have been more surprised if she wasn't Star. And her backstory isn't terrible, she gets kidnapped by Nuclear Man in the first issue and goes of the deep-end realizing how breakable her average human body is and wants superpowers to feel safe. She makes a deal with a mad scientist to get those powers.
