The classic super-hero series STARMAN, starring a Gen-X super-hero,
is re-presented in high quality format by James Robinson (BATMAN:
FACE THE FACE) and Tony Harris (EX MACHINA).
The super-heroic legacy of Starman is renewed in these stories,
in which Jack Knight--antiques collector and dealer--inherits the
name and powers of his father''s old Starman identity from his
older brother, who has been assassinated. Reluctantly adjusting to
his role, Jack reinvents the look of Starman, ditching the
traditional red and green in favor of black leather and aviator
goggles. But Jack has inherited more than a heroic identity from
his brother . . . he''s also gained a foe: the beautiful but
mentally unbalanced Nash, daughter of the villain known as the
Mist. Jack also must come to grips with the Shade, the morally
ambiguous former villain who decides to become Jack''s mentor.
