Unlike Bruce Willis, Jack Knight is not unbreakable. He's just a guy with a lot to live up to; the latest of the Knight family to
take up the mantle of Starman, protector of Opal City.
Like a lot of things when something hits you out of the blue, unexpected, they cause a heck of a greater impact. The first
graphic novel , Sins of the Father, collecting the initial story arc of the relaunched Starman did just that. It was something
bloody good from a quite unanticipated quarter. So when picking up Night and Day, which picks up where Sins left off I'm
already aware that I'm going to read a good comic. What I'm trying to clumsily say is I'm not sure whether this book is as good as the first book for the reasons stated. Jack Knight is still a great character, forced as he is to discover the hero in himself the hard way.
The first few issues in the collection detail his encounter at a travelling circus with a character that had been set up previously in Sins; a mysterious blue skinned alien who was once known by some as Starman.
The second story arc is where things get really good. Over several issues, and from as many different perspectives, a day in the life of the inhabitants of Opal city is told and the symbiosis of hero and villain is suggested to both generations of Starman. It's good stuff and highly recommended reading.

Robinson grabbed the comics world's attention with his ground breaking mini-series The Golden Age, which present highly belived and whell charecterized versions of the charecters of 40s and 50s, be brought them up to date by giving them realistic foibles (The Tarantual becomes an alcholic because he developes writers block, Starman becomes a manic-depressive because of his role building the A-bomb). Shortly there after Starman exploded onto the scene, the story of the latest Starman (the younger son of the one mentioned above) Jack Knight. Whats kept me dumping my cash into this book (aside from the amazing Tony Harris Art) is the fantastic charecterizations, Jack as a person is proably more intresting then most people you know. So go buy Night and Day because I'm pretty sure what happens here has some pretty important ramfications in the up-coming storylines. Then go buy the other two trade-paper backs and then go a comic book store and not only demand back issues but that they hold Starman for you every month, 'casue if you don't they'll be an ass 'kicking!

Starman is probably the most popular superhero comic book with adults who liked comics when they were kids. If this fits you, read the book. It manages to be a 90's comic book (much more intelligent than they were in your youth) and makes references to comics of the 40's-60's. This is the second collection. Check out the first, Starman: Sins of the Father.

Okay, if you haven't read Starman, then read this . It is a prime example of "The best written superhero in comics" (Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly). If you like superbly written comics with killer art then you need look no further than this. Nothing more can be said except again READ THIS BOOK

5.0 out of 5 stars What makes a man a hero? 25 Jun. 2001
By J. Carroll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In this collection Jack Knight starts to assume the role of hero. Whether fighting to free enslaved carnival performers (and in the process meeting another of DC's various Starmen), or meeting the new Mist and running her gauntlet; Jack Knight starts his transformation into a true hero. Not fighting for revenge or glory, he is a hero because it's the right thing to do. That may sound trite to some, but the truly wonderful thing about this character is Robinson's ability to create a superhero that has no agenda other than protecting his city and the people in it. Comic readers often ask themselves," What if a real person became a superhero?" This might be as close as we'll get to the answer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Weak Uninspired And Somewhat Boring- Silly Conclusion 19 May 2016
By thirdtwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This revamp of the golden age hero was a critical darling when first published but it just didn't work for me. The art was fine enough to hold some interest but the storyline I found to be dull and uninteresting with the ending volume being ridiculous to the point of silliness in this age of more human heroes in urban settings. I realize mine is the minority opinion.
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best reads from the 90's 16 May 2007
By C. Barnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As with the first trade, this book is packed with story. Starman Vol. 2 is where many characters and long running plot themes are introduced. I've read this all before so it's really a treat to see how many of the later stories are seeded by this one volume. Very recommended.
