- I'm both glad and disappointed that I didn't buy
this book a long time ago. I'm glad because I've had
the chance to read so much Starman is so little time
and therefore, when references are made to past
issues, they're that much more fresh in my mind. I
haven't had to endure the suspense month by month as I
wait for continuations.<br><br> I'm sorry that I've
been neglecting Starman for this long because now that
I love Starman, I want to have to wait for issues
and such. I want new material. I've taken Starman for
granted.<br><br> Superman by Robinson and Snejbjerg was as good as
I'd pictured him. It makes me almost wish that
Snejbjerg would go to a Superman title when he's finished
with Starman, or (at least,) do some fill in issues
for JSA. If Sadowski (God forbid!) ever needs to take
an issue or two off, I want Snejbjerg right in
there! His Superman was clear and the facial expressions
were well done. Robinson wrote him very heroicly...
very nice. Full of wonder and honesty. Robinson is no
Jeph Loeb when it comes to Superman, but I'll be
damned if he isn't just as good as any other Superman
writer we ever had in 60 years.<br><br> I used to miss
Tony Harris. I still do. I wish Harris were still
doing Starman... even if it's just for the final five
issues. I wish he'd at least do covers. Oh well.
Snejbjerg is an excellent choice to replace him, and Andrew
Robinson's covers certainly serve their purpose.<br><br> I
liked seeing Jack with his son, and I liked the final
page. I'm dying to know the secrets of how Jack and
David talk and where they go, etc. "Next Issue: Talking
with David (...and Ted) 2000" should be 2001, but I
really don't care. The issue was stupendous. If the rest
of the issues are this good, I'll be glad that
Starman ended good, on its own terms, as compared to some
other less fortunate titles.<br><br> 11 stars out of

Cool. I wish Starman had been around when I was younger. Of course,
I was reading about his dad & company in All Star Squadron back in
the mid-80's when I was your age. And without them we may never have
met Jack & friends.

Several reasons probably.
- The primary writers of those two characters work together.
- She is a member of the JSA & Ted looked after her.
- The original Star Spangled Kid was an interim, if you will,
Starman. I think he was at some point (either in the DCU or our
world, if not both) destined to be Ted's sucessor.
I really miss Jack, but I can honestly say I was happy how it all
wrapped up. I am so glad they got to finish the stories they
wanted. At least in part you could see that some of these plotlines
were planned from the very beggining.
