      Ah God, this was bad. Just terribly, awfully bad. Not so-bad-it's-good bad, not bad-when-viewed-through-a-modern-lens bad. Just bad like sour milk. And I've read some pretty tepid, juvenile, malformed Golden Age comics in my day -- but nothing as joyless, as stiff-jawed, as poorly-written and just plain lazy as the stuff in this volume. Pretty much every story ended with me shaking my head and grimacing and saying "what the fuck was THAT?" The formula for each and every story here runs exactly l [...]

      For those of you who think that Golden Age comics are mostly unreadable, this volume, either stands out in contrast or proves the exception to the rule. Created to out-do Superman, the art and the writing are indeed superior to the writing on either Superman and Batman at the time. Unfortunatly, Starman never really caught on, and it's a shame, but you can see perhaps the best series of the Golden Age in these two volumes, as easily the best artist of the era.

      Wealthy playboy Ted Knight has somehow harnessed the cosmic energy of the stars in his Gravity Rod. As the world moves to war, he decides that the best use of this technology is to become a costumed superhero, taking the name Starman.Like many characters created during the Golden Age, Starman did not have an origin story as such, (Roy Thomas gave him one decades later); in the first story Ted Knight has already been operating as Starman long enough to have convinced FBI chief agent Woodley Allen [...]

      This was an impulse buy at my last DragonCon, and I have to admit I was surprised how fun these stories are. With authors like Gardner Fox and THAT Alfred Bester, the plots and action are very strong, even by ultra-pulpy Golden Age standards. The art from Jack Burnley is excellent as well - as I understand from the introduction, Starman was basically created as a vehicle for showcasing Burnley's talents.The problem is with Starman himself, who -despite the strength of the writing- is a weak char [...]

      This was a pretty fun Golden Age Archives from DC. Artist Jack Burnley is the real star here, as his illustrations are far above the standard GA comics art at the time. Gardner Fox's stories are fairly formulaic, but he comes up with some interesting adversaries for the Man of Night. As for Starman himself, I never knew that his alter ego of millionaire Ted Knight was such a milquetoast. Quite the opposite from his superheroic identity. One thing of note, even though Starman never wore a mask, h [...]
