In addition to all the good stuff coming down the pipe (does good stuff really come down the pipe?), the Major Spoilers crew will be diving into DC’s Starman Omnibus.

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.

Post your comments about the first 16 issues here, and you might get your comments read during the Major Spoilers Podcast.

    I’ve just started reading it and I’m hooked! Right from the start it doesn’t read like a DC book, it feels more like an indy title or at least a Vertigo title. Tony Harris art is brilliant and to think I’d never seen anything of his until I picked up Ex Machina a few weeks ago.

    I can’t wait to get the omnibus finished up and for the rest to be released, also gives me hope for the future of Superman with both Geoff Johns and James Robinson working so closely together!
