Awesome Find: Starman Trade Paperback

While strolling through a local comic shop this past weekend, I came across the very first Starman trade paperback!  I own the individual issues (#0 – 5), and I realize the beautiful yet expensive omnibuses are available, but this first trade is special to me. It was first collected in 1996, a time when trade […]
