Everybody have a read of this comic series (okay the trade paperbacks then)- it kicks serious behind.

I've heard that, Fluffy, but I was never to sure what the series was about. What's it about? Give us some details, I've always been very curious about it..

Hard to describe without giving too much away.
The story of jack knight, son of the original ww2 starman. Jack has no desire to follow in his father's line of work, but eventually is forced to don this mantle.
This book follows him as he comes to terms with his heritage and the legacy that his father has left. Starting off pouring scorn on his father's costume, he comes to realise his father's life and works.
Like Kingdom Come, Starman is a book about comics. It embraces the history of the medium, takes digs at it, and revels in the nostalgia of old heroes from our childhood. These are made human, with some of the best characterisation around.
There's no such thing as a bad character- only bad writers.
If u don't belive me- just read through the 1st issue (issue #0)- or read thru the 1st chapter of the sins of the father tpb.
