Starman is a title I hold close to my heart. It introduced me story-archs, foreshadowing, character development and it’s also one of the reasons I’m in college learning the art of writing. But, that series ended it’s run. Enter Blackest Night.

I was both happy and worried when this was solicited. But after reading it, I felt like visiting an old friend again. This issue manages to blend everything we Starman fans loved about the book while staying relevant to Blackest Night. Fans will thrill at all the nods thrown in like a mention of “Talking with David”, or the development of Shade and Hope’s relationship. In some instances this had a very Times Past feel.

Is it the greatest thing since sliced bread? Well, I wouldn’t put sliced bread down, but this came pretty close. It served as an excellent tie-in to Blackest Night with an ingenious way of discarding a Black Lantern, but it also gave us one more chance to visit some old friends we haven’t seen in a while.

Story: 5 - Excellent
