I LOVED THIS!
This just proves that another magical girl graphic novel can only make your life better. Zodiac Starforce is such a brilliant team because it was formed prior to the comic's beginning. I really liked how this followed a different storyline than most magical girl series, which is like 'let's collect a new member in each comic!' I loved the diversity of the girls, I loved the transformations and the colour palette is so cosmic cute <3 Where's Volume Two???
This was a fantastic graphic novel!!! First of all, the art in this is stunning. I love how bright and happy it feels. This is probably one of the few "superhero" comics I will ever enjoy, especially because the characters are so relateable and lovable. Excited to see how the next volume is because I am already OBSESSED. also, there's a f/f romance that I am LIVING for.
Colour Palette - 5 starsCharacter diversity - 5 starsEvery outfit (background or main) - 5 starsActual Story - 5 stars. SOOOOO CUUUUTE.
Well this was cutesy. 2,5 stars. Not enough substance for a higher raiting, but it was nice nonetheless. I'll probably be checking out the next volume once it comes out. Also, I'll be basic and say what everyone else is saying about this- it totally is like Sailor Moon.
Okay seriously? If you like anything related to Sailor Moon, astrology, or ass kicking, this is the comic for you. Did I mention it's females doing the ass kicking? That's right! This comic is beyond awesome. Paulina's art is so magically colorful that I just want to stare at it for days. Really. Get this comic.
Girl power + female friendships + LGBTQ romance + bold and colorful art = when is volume two coming out??
One of those rarities that can back up being marketed as "Buffy meets Sailor Moon."I really enjoyed the graphic novel and graphic novels aren't really my thing. I really enjoyed that this first volume wasn't the journey of the girls getting their powers. I loved that it started as they had already saved the world two years ago and kind of disbanded, but not circumstances are putting them back together again. Molly is my favorite for sure. I read this graphic novel for #Diverseathon because of ho [...]
Zodiac Starforce is a wonderful modern rendition of the Magical Girl Warrior trope. A bright, bubbly, action story which defies stereotypes on so many levels. Our quartet of heroines is diverse. The story picks up two years after the Zodiac Starforce girls saved the world and are now trying to just live out their lives. We begin both in the middle of the story and at the start of a new one. Monsters are returning, it seems like the school's mean girl Queen Bee could be more than she appears to b [...]
oh gosh, this was so good. I love magical girl stories and this one was just my cup of tea. the girls are lovely together and I love the lore with the signs. besides, the art is just jaw dropping and I love love love the colour palette. I can't wait to read more.full review here: catshelf.wordpress/2017/0
Ultimately a fun story of friendship and magic! It definitely had modern day Sailor Moon vibes to me, even though the story is def different.
4.5 starsAhhh, I really enjoyed this graphic novel. It was beautifully illustrated and the colours are SO bright and vivid and rainbow-like (yes, my eyes have turned to hearts)! ZS is basically an all-female version of Power Rangers whereby we follow the four team members (Emma, Kim, Savanna and Molly) as they try to juggle the pressures of school life with the unexpected arrival of some giant-ass monsters! They also have to battle with Diana (another high-school girl) who's a bit of a bitch and [...]
from my Instagram#TBRTakeDown 4.0: Most Recent Book Haul.I'M SO HAPPY I FOUND THIS!!! I don't normally use so many exclamation points but I'm super excited for this!(!!!!!!)Two weeks ago I didn't know this comic book even existed. Then I saw a Booktube video that featured it and I was like "what is dat thing?!?!?! need dat thing right fucking now"d I got it today thanks to the oh so slow italian post service. This reminded me of all the old anime television series I watched as a kid: Magical DoR [...]
Okay that was so good!! I'm so excited to read the sequel! Honestly this might be my favourite magical girl comic now, it's just so wholesome
3.5 Loved the art style & bonus material at the end of this trade. 💕
I read all the volumes separately, but so it is easier to catalogue + review I have decided to go for this edition which combines all of them.So, I have been looking forward to reading this one for some time. My twitter feed was full of images and squealing people who loved this series. The art looked amazing, the story looked fun, so after waiting to make sure all 4 were out (so I could go through them in one go), I read them today.And, *sighs*, I know again why I tend to skip comics. The art i [...]
Crosspost: thereadingbelleZodiac Starforce was kindly provided by Edelweiss. All opinions are my own. This was review was supposed to get published last week, but I accidentally scheduled it for today. My bad. Ha ha.What a fantastic graphic novel! If you’re a fan of magical girls like Sailor Moon, you should definitely check Zodiac Starforce. Let me start off with character designs, I love it. I love the “big” hair too. Reminds me of Jem & The Holograms, the animated series and not the [...]
Hmm, I don't know. I just couldn't really connect to it. I liked the characters but that's it.
This book was just not my style - I've never been a fan of the magical girl when it's played as straight as this is. The characters were very flat, and I felt like I'd been dropped into the volume lacking vital background info.
Magic. Monsters. Friendship. Zodiac Powers. Lots of cool stuff! I REALLY liked it!
I liked this! Part Jem, part Power Rangers and part Lumberjanes!?
‘Zodiac Starforce: By the Power of Astra’“How is a star formed? It begins with a collapse.”I have waited for over half a year for this comic to come out in my country. Seems fitting then that the book’s themes orbit around the zodiac star signs - Gemini wins out!There are many reasons why this was perhaps my most highly anticipated graphic novel to date, whose hype miraculously exceeded my expectations. Mainly it’s because, and this should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me, [...]
This is the type of comic I normally wouldn't admit I'd read, but I ended up liking this more than I thought. Would I recommended this to other, probably not, this isn't everyone cup of tea. How much cuteness and girl power can you handle?Why am I reading this? Because I actually really like magical girls. There was a thought in my mind that I could end up regretting this based on the fact that it could just be a bunch of randomness, but it actually has a decent story. You have 4 (to start with) [...]
The artwork in this is absolutely stunning. The drawings, the characters, the outfits - everything is perfect! And the colours! Bright and bold and an almost dreamy mix of pinks and purples, yet it's still vibrant.This would probably be a four-star rating just because it's so lovely to look at! Luckily the story and the dialogue lives up to the artwork. It seems very influenced by Sailor Moon. There are extras in the back and one of them is a one-page story with the characters in uniforms that l [...]
Picked up in the belief it was something else entirely - a different magical girl team comic where the magic hits the wrong people, so one of them is a goldfish and another is a little old lady? - and frankly not something I have the hinterland to assess. When I read a superhero pastiche such as X-Men '92 and wonder how it would feel to a reader without awareness of the tropes it's playing on? Here, I am that reader. My understanding of Sailor Moon is limited to a couple of images and fs I've se [...]
not really my cup of tea, kinda feel like i did not feel interested and it was boring and nothing new. sorry guys
I liked the artwork but there was nothing exceptional about the story or the writing. Felt like it was trying too hard, tbh.
notes• (I NEED MORE)• Savi is by far my favourite character.• This was fun, colourful, and empowering.• The plot felt a little squished and predictable at times, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.• Female friendship!!• A queer relationship between two of the girls!!
THIS WAS THE CUTEST ALSO THE REPRESENTATION IS 10/10. libra and pisces are so gay for eachother i frickin love it
The more I think about it, the more I like it.I think this book was natural, relatable, and realistic. The problem that I usually have with YA is that the teenagers are unrealistic, but that's not a problem Starforce has. Though it did have a small case of insta-love I didn't mind it because it was super cheesy and cute and I adored itS DIVERSE! There are LGBTQ characters, the characters are drawn realistically and are all different shapes and sizes. I loved there costumes, and the clothes. Also [...]
