One Star Squadron Appreciation Thread


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.

100%! I think people are gonna kick themselves for sleeping on it.

I haven’t read it yet but Mark Russell is one of my fave current writers.


Thanks for the suggestion

i hope you like it if you check it out!

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?

Oh wow, never heard of it! Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

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.
