    The second installment of Stargirl and Emiko’s great journey begin and once again Geoff Johns and Todd Nauck have filled each panel with inside jokes, cameos, and Easter Eggs. Heck, even the name of Chapter 2 (More Fun) is a reference to Green Arrow and the Golden Age Aquaman’s starting point in More Fun Comics. Courtney’s joke about Green Arrow really wanting to be Batman (a frequent joke/criticism back in the day) had me laughing out loud! At least until I saw the Arrow Cave layout! The Arrow Car! The Arrow Plane! The statues of Green Arrow’s Rogues Gallery (including the Dart, Clock King, and the Spider)! The Green Arrows of Other Nations! OMG! Miss Arrowette, they included Miss Arrowette! And the honest to goodness original Seven Soldiers (or do you call the Law’s Legionarres)! No replacements, no retconning. Now this is what I’m talking about!

    And the ladies have found the island! An island who’s beach is made of Miraclo! And now that I’ve seen aspects of the villain, I believe the internet speculation might be spot on. Best of all, we finally get our first taste of some of the missing sidekicks! As with Emiko captured it’s up to Wing, Air Wave, Robbie the Robot Dog, and Cherry Bomb to help! This is a love letter to fans of the Golden Age written and drawn by people who know.

    Geoff Johns has written some of the most epic runs and spectacular events in DC Comics history, so it’s easy to forget that he’s one of the best around at quiet character work as well. That’s the case for this series, which brings the story back to his most personal character—Courtney Whitmore. (…) I feel like this series didn’t get as much hype in advance as Johns’ new Justice Society of America series did, but so far this is the one that’s probably going to stick with me longer and deliver the more exciting read.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Stargirl: The Lost Children #2 is a Saturday Morning cartoon that meets Golden Age Comics with a new age twist. It’s fun, not too heavy, and perfect for any age. Sure, it has some cheesy moments here and there, however, the plot is direct, the pacing is perfect, and the characters are welcoming. Emiko and Courtney work well together plus the subtle Golden Age twists provide the perfect blend for parent and child to read together.

    Readers even get to see the Arrow Cave as well as experience some corny goatee jokes. What more could you ask for in a comic? I highly recommend picking up Stargirl: The Lost Children #2, as well as issue one, for something lighthearted yet still important to the overall climate of DC Comics. Add this puppy to your pull list post haste!

    Stargirl: The Lost Children #1 was one of the month’s most pleasant surprises, and issue #2 meets that same high bar. The themes of Legacy, abandonment and the fear of being forgotten are all concepts ripe for exploration, and Geoff Johns impressively weaves those elements together in a lighthearted but still thought-provoking mystery. (…) At times things can walk a line between being poignant and melodramatic, but more often than not the book avoids the latter, and it has quickly become a book I look forward to each month.

    Stargirl: The Lost Children #2 is “more fun than issue #1. After the drama of the setup, Emiko and Courtney’s visit to the Arrow Cave as their journey begins gives the issue a light-hearted start. The plot moves along as the duo finally gets confirmation that they are on the right track. It’s the right combination of fun and adventure with a touch of drama and world-building that is geared toward the Golden Age/ legacy fan.

    Business picks up and we finally get to Orphan Island. Really intrigued by these captive Golden Age sidekicks and what their place will be during the Dawn of DC in 2023. Compelling story and solid art.

    Johns and company are playing with intriguing ideas that rest in the margins of the DC continuity. They would hold a lot more impact if the rest of the DC Universe had a little more continuity to it, but the idea of a lost Golden Age feels captivating enough as Johns continues to explore it in the second issue of Stargirls new mini-series.
