Starfire Takes Center Stage in DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS #18

Starfire will shine and kick butt in her solo story.

The reaction to Starfire lately has been all over the place. As her character continues to develop in the pages of RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS, we're seeing that not only can she kick major butt, she also is a character worthy of respect, especially by the people of her planet.

Starfire fans will be overjoyed to learn that in March we will be getting an extra dose of Starfire. DC has announced on The Source (are they still calling their blog that name?) Starfire will have a solo story in DC UNIVERSE #18.

DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS has already focused on Deadman, the Challengers of the Unknown, Vandal Savage, Kid Flash and Black Lightning and Blue Devil. Issue #17 will focus on Arsenal. Isn't it time we see some more female characters in the spotlight?

The one-shot story will be written by Joe Keatinge with art by Federico Dallocchio. The issue goes on sale March 20. Here's what Joe had to say:

After working with illustrator Ricken on our Arsenal issue, I got the bug to do more with the Outlaws, so getting the immediate opportunity to work with illustrator Federico Dallocchio on Starfire is very, very ideal. Even better, she's a character I've liked for a long time now, especially in the classic Wolfman/Perez Titans era. Shining a solo spotlight to where she's at now in DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 is something I'm very enthusiastic about.
