About the Author

James Robinson is an acclaimed, award-winning writer whose works include STARMAN and JSA- THE GOLDEN AGE. He was co-writer with matt Wagner on SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE and with Geoff Johns he co-wrote HAWKMAN. 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.


Gr 9 Up-There are a number of oft-quoted statistics that place the average age of comic-book readers somewhere in their mid-20s. If so, then just as Spider-Man was created for the teenagers of the 1960s, so Starman was for the 20-something readers of the 1990s. This iteration of Starman (and there have been many) sold collectibles, had a strained relationship with his father, and fought crime while wearing street clothes for a costume. The end result was something new, but not for everyone. This third volume collects single issues of the series, plus a limited series, and assorted miscellanea. Unfortunately, the collected works do not equate to a single, consistent narrative. The volume would be fine for those libraries looking to fill out their "Starman" shelves, but not great for casual readers. The writing is very talky, with occasional pages of pure text, and a lot of reflection by the characters. The art is uneven, varying in quality and tone. Purchase for die-hard fans and libraries in which the previous two volumes have been popular.-Douglas P. Davey, Halton Hills Public Library, Ontario, Canada Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

"The best-written super hero in comics . . . Starman is keen."--ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
