4.5 out of 5 stars

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 of the expressions just gets it right. It takes more than one person to make a good comic and this is as good an example of everyone just getting it right as can be seen. Don't just barge through this collection in one sitting - put the thing down when the cliff hangers are delivered and string it out for gods sake because stuff as good as this doesn't come round very often.

This trade paperback of probably one of the *best* books on the market also contains "Sand and Stars", in which the "next generation" (Jack Knight" teams with the one who "started it all" (Wesley Dodds, aka Sandman). A well-written meditation on life, growing old, and age, it even features a "cameo" by Guy Davis, who drew the late, lamented SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATER. Plus, you get the "Demon Quest" arc, a Christmas story with a difference, *and* a "Talking with David" segment. Trust me, at this price, it's a *bargain*. And after reading this, begin reading STARMAN. You'll be glad you did.
