The Dugan-Whitmore family vacation is in full swing, but something sinister lurks in the woods, stalking Pat Dugan. Can Stargirl and S.T.R.I.P.E. face down the threat from Pat’s past and preserve their summer trip, or will it come to a tragic end?
KabooooomThe only real weakness to Earth-Prime: Stargirl #4 is that it doesn't seem to advance the overall storyline of the series that much, apart from revealing the identity of the mystery villain tying the different Arrowverse series together. Ignoring that, it is a solid comic with a great story that can be enjoyed by both fans of the show and newcomers alike. If, for some reason, you haven't given Stargirl a try, this issue is a fine place to start.
Geek DadIt's a great character spotlight, and also does an excellent job of setting up what makes this series different from all the others in this line. It's such a charming read that by the time Magog actually shows up, it's almost distracting.
ComicBook.comBy and large, these Earth-Prime issues have contained a lot of good – but this week's Stargirl-themed installment might be the first genuinely great one. As the Dugan-Whitmore family try to enjoy their family vacation, a visit from an old villain, as well as the looming threat of Magog, add some complications. James Robinson and Paula Sevenbergen's script (unsurprisingly) perfectly captures the charm and emotional nuance of its live-action counterpart, and Jerry Ordway's art is quintessentially timeless, especially as it traverses multiple points and time. This issue isn't only a must-read for Stargirl or DCTV fans, it should be read by anyone who loves the Golden Age corner of the DC Universe.
