    One thought on “Starman, Vol. 3: A Wicked Inclination”

    1. James Robinson's Starman is the text book all other writers should use when trying to update an older character.He uses the characters history, showing how things fit together and fixing the bits that don't. Jack Knight feels real, and Opal city is a fake comic book city that feels like a real place.All of the supporting cast are interesting enough to carry a story on their own, and he manages to change the Shade from a minor JSA villain into one of one my favorite characters.The stories mix str [...]

    2. Collecting issues 17 and 19-27 and includes the Eisner award winning story Sand and Stars featuring the final team-up of Starman and the golden age Sandman. By this third collection in the James Robinson penned Starman continuity the family of characters is really starting to bite and the central character of Jack Knight is as fully realised in all his faults, habits, mannerisms and persona as any characterisation in comic book history. Tony Harris' art, particularly with the depth and realism o [...]

    3. This was my favorite of the Starman trades and the hardest to track down affordably.My main attraction to the Starman series was always that he was a legacy hero and always trying to live up to what his father, the original Starman, accomplished. This one was great because it had Starman teaming with a collegue of his father and a superhero in his own right, Wesley Dodds, the original Sandman, now a very old man. The relationship between Jack Knight and his family, and in this story Wesley Dodds [...]

    4. Two strong stories here. The first involves Jack going to NYC to meet one of his father's former colleagues, Wesley Dodds and Dian Belmont. The interplay between Wesley and Dian comes off as realistic to me, and the time hopping between the 1930 and the 1990s works for the mystery tale. The second tale involves the man whom Oscar Wilde used as the inspiration for the Picture of Dorian Gray, but in actuality is a killer who made a pact with a demon for immortality. A short side trip to the fifth [...]

    5. Robinson build upon the mythos of Opal City in the third volume of Starman. While not as glamorous, this version of Starman is as willful and distinctive as the other major superheroes. Harris' art has improved over the first two volumes bringing an offbeat feel to the story, as if he has started to settle into his role along with Jack Knight.
