Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E. (1999-) #7
Great fight between our heroes and Shiv. And great interaction between Courtney and Pat. I love how even in battle Star Spangled Kid was all “I’m not talking to you. LALALALA!” You will never see Batman and Robin interact like that. Also love the running gag of everyone assuming S.T.R.I.P.E. is just her robot sidekick.
This really is a great series. It’s not surprising it didn’t do better. DC has always had a hard time selling fans on a solot title (or I guess duo title in this case, but let’s be honest… name or not this was Star Spangled Kid’s book) starring someone not tied into the Batman or Superman family. Especially one done by a then lesser know writer… little did we know. So get why it didn’t sell well. It’s just a shame as this book got better and better with each issue, it’s a shame more fans were not willing to take a chance on this.
