Stargirl and the lost kid sidekicks are ready to do battle with Childminder on Orphan Island. The biggest problem is Stargirl’s old JSA teammate, the android Hourman, is on the Childminder’s side. The lost sidekicks must fight their way to escape.
So this pain is finally over. The huge amount of hype Geoff Johns gets for his writing is totally unwarranted. Half the characters in this book are actual sidekicks from the Golden Age, the others, Johns’ pulled out of his ass. Not every hero from the Golden Age had a kid sidekick, nor did they need to. This is just another excuse for Johns to push Stargirl down our throats and make it seem she’s special or something. If DC had any brains, they would put Johns on a short leash and kill off Stargirl once and for all.
Todd Nauck’s art seriously shines here, but unfortunately, it is lost on this on this awful story. Nauck needs to be put on another book like the new Superboy or Tim Drake. With Nauck, the highlight was when Stargirl was growing old and almost died. I was so hoping she did.
Matt Herms’s color really adds to Nauck’s art and seriously pops.
Bottom line, DC Comics, kill off Stargirl already. Don’t waste your cash on this crap. People need to wake up and stop thinking Johns is still a good writer.
