Awesome! I can't wait to see the reprinted panels of......Golden Age Starman at the malt shop with his pal with an eating disorder, archrival, and two girls he can't decide between....Golden Age Starman in post-apocalyptic Japan, a rebel posessed by a spirit of destruction worshipped as a messiah by some....Golden Age Starman and his baby sister having wacky adventures in a world of adults, speaking in a language only they can understand....Golden Age Starman and his three nephews on globetrotting, slapstick adventures. and of course: ...Golden Age Starman's team-up with Jerry Lewis.
And you'd be amazed how many of those situations can be handled easily with some old-fashioned muscle and a blast of cosmic energy!!!Jerry was never the same afterwards...
Starman, oh Starmansurely the geatest heroof the Golden Age
Scipio:I wonder if you've read the 1982 JLA/JSA team-up? That monster stretched over five issues, JLA #207-209 and All-Star Squadron #14-15. In one of those issues, I can't recall which, they did the classic multi-hero plot device of the teams splitting up into smaller teams, and Starman and Aquaman teamed up for action! Sounds like your meat and drink.
Ted Knight was StarmanBut that was before he metMary Tyler Moore.
Ted Knight was also the narrator of the Aquaman cartoons, and the voice of most of the villains!
The last panels excerpted remind me of something modern comics have lost:Heroes improvising explosives out of readily-available materials.Though, I admit, the best example ever came in a modern comic, (well, 1983) The Brave and the Bold #200. The story begins in the fifties on Earth-2. Earth-2 Batman is put in a deathtrap and escapes by improvising explosives. The villain goes comatose. Decades later, his consciousness possesses his law-abiding Earth-1 equivalent. The villain sets up another deathtrap and puts the Earth-1 Batman in it, this time removing the elements that allowed Earth-2 Batman to escape. Batman improvises an entirely different explosive to escape.YES! TWO! TWO! TWO improvised explosive escapes from deathtraps in the same issue!That f'in ruled.WOO!
