The classic super-hero series STARMAN, starring a Gen-X super-hero, is re-presented in high quality format by James Robinson (BATMAN: FACE THE FACE) and Tony Harris (EX MACHINA).
The super-heroic legacy of Starman is renewed in these stories, in which Jack Knight--antiques collector and dealer--inherits the name and powers of his father's old Starman identity from his older brother, who has been assassinated. Reluctantly adjusting to his role, Jack reinvents the look of Starman, ditching the traditional red and green in favor of black leather and aviator goggles. But Jack has inherited more than a heroic identity from his brother . . . he's also gained a foe: the beautiful but mentally unbalanced Nash, daughter of the villain known as the Mist. Jack also must come to grips with the Shade, the morally ambiguous former villain who decides to become Jack's mentor.

James Robinson is an acclaimed, award-winning writer whose works include STARMAN and JSA: THE GOLDEN AGE. He was co-writer with matt Wagner on SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE and with Geoff Johns he co-wrote HAWKMAN. In addition, he wrote the screenplay to THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, starring Sean Connery, and created the acclaimed young readers comic series LEAVE IT TO CHANCE.From Booklist:
Of the spate of more-realistic, adult-aimed superhero comics that came in the wake of Alan Moore’s genre-defying Watchmen (1987), Starman is arguably the most ambitious and thoughtful. Jack Knight is the son of a 1940s costumed crime fighter powered by an energy-harnessing cosmic rod. Initially rejecting the family legacy, he reluctantly assumed the mantle after older brother David was killed in battle by their father’s archenemy. Jack still rejected the garish costume. Writer Robinson was firmly in command of concept and characterizations from the get-go, but Tony Harris’ art in the early issues gathered here is relatively crude. Harris improved rapidly, though, and by the last stories in this volume, he demonstrates the stylish realism that became integral to Starman’s success. Critically lauded in its day but somewhat overlooked by readers, the comic has been collected before in paperback. Libraries still in possession of those editions may not need to upgrade, but those who missed them or wore them out now have a durable way to amend such situations. --Gordon Flagg
