iFanboy Video Podcast
Best superhero series of the 90's? Best fictional city? Favorite character ever?
These are the kinds of phrases being thrown around in this episode of iFanboy, and while it doesn't always happen, one thing Josh, Conor, and Ron all agree that Starman is a modern masterpiece, helping shape the concept of legacy in the DC Universe. Over the course of more than 80 issues, writer James Robinson steered Jack Knight from the reluctant son of a hero to a true hero in his own right. With a magnificent and varied cast of characters and set in the completely unique world of Opal City, there's nothing quite like Starman out there. Artist Tony Harris helped establish the essential pieces of Jack and Opal's world for the bulk of the series, before Peter Snejbjerg took over, where he set his own path, and handled the epic conclusion to the series.
With all 6 volumes of the Starman Omnibus available and on shelves, and an upcoming Shade series by James Robinson in our future, this is the perfect time to revisit Starman, or go to Opal for the first time. The guys talk about the rudiments and history of the series, before delving into the specific elements of the story, as well as our favorite parts.
