About the Author:

James Robinson is an acclaimed, award-winning writer whose works include STARMAN, SUPERMAN and JSA: THE GOLDEN AGE. He was co-writer with Matt Wagner on SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE and co-wrote HAWKMAN with Geoff Johns. 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. He is currently writing EARTH 2 and DC UNIVERSE PRESENTS.

From Booklist:

The charmingly amoral and seemingly immortal antihero from the much-lauded Starman comic returns in a miniseries that begins with a savage attempt on his life by the supervillain for hire Deathstroke. The Shade’s quest to learn who’s behind the attack takes him around the world, reuniting him with several of his descendants, before culminating in a cataclysmic battle with Egyptian gods held captive beneath the British Museum. As a bonus, the tale delves into the heretofore unrevealed mystic calamity in Victorian London that gave him the power to manipulate shadows to devastating effect. The story’s deliberate pace and provocative characterizations set it apart from standard superhero fare. The various chapters are drawn by some of comics’ foremost artists, including Darwyn Cooke, Jill Thompson, and Cully Hamner. Many fans of the Shade have likely moved on in the decade that’s elapsed since Starman’s celebrated run; even so, this revival of one of the DC universe’s most intriguing characters is arguably one of the best things the company’s published since it overhauled its superhero line two years ago. --Gordon Flagg
