Starfire by Palmiotti and Conner: a Kids Comics Review!

Welcome back to another Kid Comics Review! This week we are showing some love for a great DC character. Starfire has been a staple of the DC universe ever since her first appearance in DC Comics Presents #26 and her follow-up run as a member of the New Teen Titans. She's always been the classic "fish out of water" character. Her journey across the universe to earth, and her subsequent time as a hero, show her strength and power. But underneath all of her abilities she is still learning about our planet and customs every day. This week, we are recommending to you Starfire: Welcome Home!

In this series, which ran from 2015-2016, DC super partners Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti (of DC's Harley Quinn fame) move her to Florida and give her some wild new adventures. She fights villains, makes new friends, learns what beer is, and generally gets to be a young lady in Florida! I found this series to be lighthearted and somewhat perfect for pre-teen readers. Its sense of humor and romantic dramas are the perfect backdrop for Starfire, whose social faux pas create the common thread through the series. If you enjoyed Conner/Palmiotti on Power Girl, Harley Quinn or Birds of Prey, then you'll be very pleased with these issues.
