Back in 94, 14 year old me tried his damnedest to get into the Ted Knight Starman series. However, it wasn’t to be. I found it too wordy and not in the glib style of Clairemont or Wolfman who envoked pulp adventures in their prose. I found the art too rough compared to Lee, Silvestei, Romata, etc. So before issue three even hit shelves I dropped it and never looked back, getting confused on the nearly three decades since when people talk about how amazing it was.
With Stargirl’s release and DC Universe’s generous catalogue I figured I’d give it another shot (by the way page 16 of issue 5 is broken). ■■■■■■■■ this book is amazing! I want to wait until I finish it before going into detail about it but … Wow, I was a childish fool for dropping this 26 years ago!
