The acclaimed series STARMAN, starring a Gen-X super hero from the 1990s, is re-presented in high quality format, featuring spectacular art by Eisner Award winner Tony Harris.
In this volume, Starman stands shoulder to shoulder with heroes including DC's Captain Marvel, Batman and many others.
First, in a story set in the 1940s, Ted Knight, the original Starman, works with Captain Marvel and Bulletman to clear himself of espionage charges.
Then, back in the 1990s, young Jack Knight, the new Starman, must capture the deadly Doctor Phosphorous before embarking on a mission into space to find lost hero Will Payton. And in a never-before-collected story, Starman teams up with Batman and Hellboy to rescue his father, Ted Knight, from neo-Nazis who have tapped into a mystical power source.

James Robinson is English born but has lived in Southern California for almost twenty years. He has spent many of those years solely as a writer of comics, most noteworthy being THE GOLDEN AGE, STARMAN and Leave It To Chance. But he's written a whole lot more than that. Burned out from comics, he retreated to the world of screenwriting which he continues to do while, after a lengthy break, returning to his first love comics with SUPERMAN and JUSTICE LEAGUE. He resides in Hollywood.From Booklist:
In its fourth volume, the deluxe reprinting of one of the 1990s’ best superhero comics showcases the middle of Starman’s seven-year run. Second-generation hero Jack Knight has grown more comfortable with his father’s legacy, so Robinson shifts the focus a bit to bring in other characters from the DC universe, such as Captain Marvel and the Demon, and to portray other superheroes who adopted the Starman name over the decades. Even those who have the earlier paperback Starman reprints will want this volume, for it includes several previously uncollected stories, among them a two-issue collaboration with Batman and Hellboy, gorgeously illustrated by the latter’s creator, Mike Mignola. --Gordon Flagg
