Let me just start by saying, the premise for this comic is great: a teenage girl, Courtney Whitmore, discovers that her stepdad used to be a superhero, and steals his equipment to become one herself. In an attempt to keep her from getting herself killed, Pat, the stepdad in question, becomes her sidekick, who happens to wear a giant robot outfit.

It's really the stuff classic comics are made of. There's plenty of superheroing and all that, but the dynamic of a teenage girl being forced to team up

This book reprints the first 14 issues of Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. in which Courtney Whitmore teams up with her stepfather to fight crime as the new Star Spangled Kid, and then issue #4 of JSA All-Stars in which Courtney takes on the name Stargirl.

The book is really of interest because of the TV series based on Stargirl as a comic book series, it's not particularly remarkable. It's Geoff Johns first work in comics and as a book it's not bad, but that's about all you can say to it. The characters a

Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. was a very fun series that came out right when I was getting into collecting comics regularly. It has deep connections to the golden age of DC Comics and that also drew me in. It's been a while since I revisited the series and after watching the first episode of the new Stargirl TV show I couldn't resist. Geoff Johns and Lee Moder created a great comic book and it was fun to see Courtney Whitmore grow and develop as she learned more about the heroic legacy she adopted init ...more

I found Stargirl to have a consistent storyline, with a few fun time travel twists. The villains featured in this comic, primarily green aliens, were less complicated than I expected them to be. I read this to see if I would be interested in the new show on CW and I probably will watch a few episodes to see how the storylines differ, which I imagine they will fairly quickly.

Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E., which is the comic collected and rebranded for the new DC Universe show Stargirl, also happens to be Geoff Johns first comic for DC. If you are interested in Johns' earliest works and want to spoil the hell out of the TV show this is the collection for you. Johns is very much finding his way in these early issues but they are still equal parts fun and forgetable.

This was a fun re-read of the STARS AND S.T.R.I.P.E. series. Its one flaw is that it suffers from "crossover-itis," with things mentioned in an issue and then never referred to again. As someone who typically reads only certain titles, this can be distracting. Still, the fun factor far exceeds that flaw.

Courtney Whitmore is really an annoying brat for most of this story line.

Reseña de Raúl Peribáñez para su blog:

Comics poco conocidos, pero recomendables (2)

Entre 1999 y 2000 DC Comics publicó Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E., una serie de carácter juvenil que pasó desapercibida en su momento pero que con el paso del tiempo ha ganado en relevancia: presentó el debut de Courtney Withmore (futura miembro de la JSA) y los primeros guiones del ahora popular Geoff Johns en el mundo del cómic.

Capitán Torrezno
Obra primeriza pero ideal para el público adolescente en la línea de young justice o runaways.
Guiones muy frescos que se adaptan muy bien al estilo del dibujante

Dicen que hace mucho, mucho tiempo, cuando Geoff Johns recién entraba en DC, era muy buen guionista. A ver cuánto hay de cierto y cuánto de dulce nostalgia en esas afirmaciones.
