This week Rodrigo is out of town, which gives Matthew and Stephen a chance to take another look at Starman. In this new, third volume, Starman’s hometown of Opal City is terrorized by Dr. Pip, an eccentric bomber. And with no demands from the mad villain, both Starman and the local authorities are unable to track him down. Also in this volume, Starman teams up with Batman to save the life of reformed villain Solomon Grundy, and readers learn the history of Starman’s enigmatic mentor, The Shade. As always, the Major Spoilers Podcast is nothing without comments from great readers
This week on the Major Spoilers Podcast, the MSP Crew returns to Starman, and will discuss the happenings in the second Starman omnibus. The classic super-hero series STARMAN, starring a Gen-X super-hero, is re-presented in high quality format. 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. In this volume, Jack’s disturbing dreams drive him to New York City to meet his father’s old friend, Wesley Dodd, the Sandman of
Or – “There Are Old Pilots And Bold Pilots, But Few Old, Bold Pilots…” I saw recently that a clinical study proved that January 25th is the most depressing day of the entire year, scientifically and unequivocally. While I don’t disagree with that sentiment (especially as it regards the attendance of employees in Midwestern United States call centers) I find it fascinating that somebody actually got paid to try and figure out something that silly and (let’s be honest, here) banal. Still and all, it’s the kind of story that you read and go, “Yeah, I can see that.” Thus,
Lest you think this week is going to turn into Star Girl week, today’s Art Appreciation Moment of the Day jumps back to the past to find the original Star Man looking over us all.Â I do like the film look on his face, and the lighting from the cosmic rod.

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
James Robinson, who wrote the brilliant Starman series, and who is currently writing the Superman title for DC responded to the question on if Jack Knight would appear in the Superman series. “When you retire a character, if you bring him back, you open him up to the potential that he might appear in books you don’t want him to appear in, written by other writers.” Considering the only thing we’ve seen Jack Knight in lately is the awesome Starman Omnibus from DC, it looks like Robinson may get his wish.
