RELEASED: January 4, 2022

This issue does a nice job of making Minute Man, who we spend most of the issue with, sympathetic yet comedic. That’s not necessarily an easy balance to strike.

Minute Man goes to a comic book convention in this issue. *sigh* I miss conventions. Namely C2E2.

Mark Russell does a great job of making One-Star Squadron genuinely funny. As such, it’s a joy to read. I’m not sure how nice it is to Power Girl and Red Tornado from a character perspective. But that’s another matter entirely…

A One-Star Squadron #1 Micro-Review – A Familiar Comedic Twist

One-Star Squadron 1, cover, 2021, Steve LieberTITLE: One-Star Squadron #1 (of 6)
AUTHOR: Mark Russell
ARTISTS: Steve Lieber, Dave Stewart (Colorist), Dave Sharpe (Letterer)

RELEASED: December 7, 2021

It’s Justice League International…ish.

That’s what I thought both going into and coming out of One-Star Squadron. For the record, that’s not a bad thing. The market is wide open at DC for a quality comedy book in the JLI vein. And it looks like now we may have it.

Power Girl fans may come away from this one miffed, as it essentially turns her into a sell out. But maybe that’s just her character arc…?
