    Really enjoyable introduction to the Zodiac Starforce, a group of young girls that have superpowers to fight evil. I loved the artwork and the characters so far. I can't wait to see what happens next.

    I love how this comic is heavily influenced by both Buffy & Sailor Moon! I also love that one of the main characters is called Emma & that's she's a Gemini like me! Keen for more Zodiac Starforce!

    Omg this series is perfect! I love these girls so much! And it's just the first issue! I love that Gemini is named Emma (one of my nicknames). If only her color was blue (my favorite color). I cannot wait to read more!

    3.5 stars. This was a bit confusing, bc it feels like you’re stepping into the story at the middle, but it will hopefully get better/less confusing.

    If you like Sailor Moon and other magical girl manga/anime, this is for you. I'm hoping they build more backstory in the next volume.

    You can also find this book on Hedgehog Book Reviews!Zodiac Starforce is a group of girls who fight monsters and evil, in general. They each have a different zodiac sign and come with their own, unique powers. In this episode, Diana, the popular girl at school, tries to get the Zodiac Starforce leader to join her team of evil. The other girls must try and save their friend before she is too far gone. There is also a bit of romance on the side too, because what’s a superhero girl gang without a bit of queer girl love?I have been on the hunt for graphic novels about groups of female superheroes for a while. I found a few, but Zodiac Starforce was the only one that my university library already had on its shelves. The rest are on their way to me! One of my favorite things about this book is the color scheme. Often, women superheroes are assigned blue and red colors. This is great, but I wish pink were also depicted as a strong, powerful color. Primary colors are not the only colors allowed to stand for superheroes! Pink is brave! The artwork in Zodiac Starforce was so bubbly, colorful, and pink. I absolutely loved looking at it.I, unfortunately, wasn’t as impressed with the storyline. I felt like there were a lot of jumps in plot that made the book hard to follow. Sometimes, I thought a scene hadn’t been completed, but then it cut to a new location or something 2 weeks later. I understand that this first installment in Zodiac Starforce is short, but I wish there had been more continuity. I hate feeling confused while I’m reading. I had to try very hard not to get parts mixed up while reading this and I still ended up feeling like I was missing something a few times.I noticed that one of the girls has bigger thighs than the others, but she’s still pretty slim. I would like to see more diversity in body size and shape in a feminist comic like this. Unfortunately, many books and companies that are beginning to incorporate women with thicker bodies are only using women with flat stomachs. It think Zodiac Starforce should incorporate more curvy women and body types readers may not normally see in graphic novels. I see the attempt that the creators made, but they could have taken it further.I loved the artwork for this book, but it wasn’t the feminist, girl gang graphic novel I was searching for. I feel like I didn’t see much in this comic that I hadn’t seen before. For that reason, I will continue my search for a graphic novel featuring empowered women of color fighting evil. I hope future graphic novels I pick up feature pink and purple like Zodiac Starforce did.

    The cover looks hella kick ass but idk the first issue is really slow. On top of that, they keep referencing to the past and I have no idea what they're talking about. Obviously they'll discuss it in the future, but I really don't like being left in the dark.

    Woo, that was great!The reason I picked this up is because I'm a huge fan of Japanese Magical Girl series and Sailor Moon is my all time favourite. The Manga, both anime adaptations, the musicals, the live actions show - you name it, I'm a fan of it all. This first issue sets up the scene and foundation of what's to come and I absolutely can't wait to find out what that stuff may be!The art style is great and offers a unique spread of many distinct characters. The colouring style is absolutely gorgeous and a pleasure to stare at!I can't say much on the plot since it's just starting up, but I really liked how all the characters were magical girls who had defended and saved the world already. Rather than becoming magical girls then and there, I felt like it gives a lot more room and time to play about with things rather than spending a few issues setting them up. It was so much fun spotting the Sailor Moon references through out! Spying the occasional background character with hairstyles from Sailor Moon or outfits was great - I hope they include some in future issues too!An interview at the end which talks to both creators mentions Cardcaptor Sakura, Avatar: The Last Airbender and also The Legend of Korra (of course Sailor moon too) being a fan of all of those things makes me really excited to see what they have in store! Buffy was also mentioned but I've never seen any Buffy. All in all, a fantastic start to what seems to be a very fun and creative Magical Girl series. Issue 2 can not come out fast enough!

    What's not to love about this, really? This was recommended to me because I like love Sailor Moon. Like seriously, it was my childhood along with a slew of other things.So here's a group of teenage girls who, blessed by the goddess Astra, have can transform and with that, they have powers. The great thing about this though, which makes it different from Sailor Moon, is that it is not an origins story. It takes place about two years after Zodiac Starforce initially broke up. Some things caused them to break up which I won't reveal because YOU SHOULD READ IT but some old enemies are resurfacing.Also, I love all the characters. I mean, what's not to like? They're diverse, which a word thrown around a lot lately because there aren't a lot of them in young adult books but this is perfect, really. The art work is great, too, and I'm just so thrilled to keep reading. I would recommend this to anyone who wants great female protagonists. They aren't perfect, but there's still bad@$$.

    This is so awesome and way better than I expected. The story revolves around a group of friends with magical powers which are all linked in some way to their zodiac sign, and which call themselves the 'Zodiac Starforce'. However, unlike many this does not start out with an origin story, and in fact it starts out two years after the team has fought together. They seem to have slightly drifted apart, however, are brought together when a monster shows up of nowhere and they realise that this is just the beginning. The characters are written very well, you can already distinguish their personalities, and already in this first issue it gives insight to their complex feelings towards the situation they are in. For instance, some of them do not want to be a part of the Zodiac Starforce, however, it is not something they can hide from because it is their fate. Also, Kevin Panetta stated that this was inspired by Buffy, which I can totally see :3

    In this Western magical girl comic, best described as Sailor Moon meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer, we skip all the origin story stuff, and are instead presented with a team of four magical girls -- Emma, Kim, Savanna, and Molly -- who have already saved the day. They previously fought and sealed away the great evil they were meant to defeat, and the four girls are now retired from the fighting evil game, and have disbanded to live out their normal high school lives. Of course, a new wave of strange monsters and a dire message for the team's leader Emma brings the band back together. Recommended.

    A big hit with me! With a beginning as promising as this, I have high hopes for Zodiac Starforce. The creators were influenced by their love for strong female characters in shows like Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Sailor Moon, Avatar The Last Airbender, and Legend of Korra, and you can feel it in this issue. It's spectacular. Even better because it doesn't take itself too seriously. There's heart in this. And I love the inclusion of different skin colours, body types, sexual orientations, and how each girl has her own fashion style. This comic is going to be epic if it keeps this up.

    The art and coloring are so gorgeous that regardless of story quality I would have enjoyed this book. This particular issue had a lot of history to allude to and characters to introduce, so we haven't really seen the arc begin to unfold. I'm feeling pretty confident that when it does this will become a 5 star series for me.

    I didn’t know anything about Zodiac Starforce, but I was absolutely delighted by the cover. It looked like it could be fun and engaging, and as much as I appreciate dark and heavy stories, I love being able to find lighter fare in comics.Check out the roundtable over at !

    This was fun to read. But, I wish we had not been thrown into a story that had already partially completed. We are constantly reminded of a battle that they already had that we did not get to read.

    It was a little confusing at first as it open two years after the girls have saved the world, but once I got my bearings, it was great. The girls are all amazing, and I enjoyed seeing their friendship. If you're a fan of Lumberjanes, give this a try.

    I give this first issue two and a half stars. It feels like a Mr. Buy Right version of Jem and the Holograms meets Lumberjanes. I'd like to continue reading this series at some point in the future when I have more time.

    SO MANY REFERENCES TO SAILOR MOON, I WAS DYING. The drawing style is so great too, plus the diversity and interesting starting point for such an intense plot. I'm so excited to see where it goes from here to lay down the ground work.

    Very much enjoying this series, which might as well have been aimed directly at my heart. As a Sailor Moon fangirl, it hits right in that space reserved for awesome design, beautiful artwork, strong friendships and team dynamics. :D

    THIS IS SO COLOURFUL!!!1!!!!!111! Also, have got to love a team of magical girl fighters BUT without the lengthy origin story! I like that this starts effectively in the middle, but without using exposition for the background story. Can't wait to read more!

    For a single-issue beginning, it definitely sucked me in. I'm invested in the characters and learning more about this world and the magic in it. I am excited to continue on with this series. (I need the Aquarius character to be phenomenal!)

    Zodiac Starforce employs some fun concepts, but issue one felt recycled from an anime. I may have enjoyed this more were I younger.
