One Star Squadron Appreciation Thread

979536.SX270_QL80_TTD

I’m moved to start a thread about how much I’m enjoying One Star Squadron. It’s funny and sad at the same time; it’s a strong heir to Giffen and DeMatteis’s classic Justice League; and it dusts off neglected, obscure DC characters, most importantly The Heckler!

Anyway, good job, Russell and Lieber!

Loved the first two issues, this book needs some more love. It’s really going under the radar.

The premise of One-Star Squadron reminds me of Hero Hotline, an obscure hero-for-hire team that ordinary citizens could contact (via a 1-800 phone number) in case of an emergency. The team had its own 6-issue miniseries, as well as a strip in Action Comics Weekly.

Anyone else remember them?

My favorite was Power Company by Kurt Busiek and Tom Grummett

One Star Squadron off to a good start, we’ll see where the power struggle goes next issue.

One-Star Squadron has finally arrived on DCUI. I had no idea what to expect but I had a lot of fun with this one. I will probably be picking up the TPB whenever that comes out, if it isn’t out already.

If you want more of these vibes in recent comics you can check out Blue and Gold if you haven’t done so.

(Power Girl fans, just repeat to yourself, “it’s a big multiverse”)
