Captain Marvel and Starman


Jim Starlin in my mind is synonymous with outer space action.  Sure, he's done great work for Marvel and DC in various genres, but what immediately comes to mind for me are his interstellar epics.  It's great that we are seeing so many of his designs and concepts reach new audiences now that they are being interpreted by the movies.

These two heroes first met in a tale that began in  STF #1678, and continued into STF #1679...

Speaking of interstellar epics, how about the Epic character Dreadstar? Team him up with any of Starlin's other galactic heroes or perhaps Judge Dredd.

Amen, Ross! Amen. :-)

You CANNOT have enough Jim Starlin, in my opinion. Shucks, his name suggests super dynamic space opera. This is just a cover full of WOW!!!

Perhaps the team up of Dreadstar and Starman might reveal another family connection...?

In the back of my mind there's always been some disappointment that it was Starlord and not Dreadstar that got re-discovered and turned into a multi-media superstar. But these mentions of him got me Google'ing him for images, and what turns up but STF #527 where Ross had him and Warlock go at it!

How about Star-slayer and Captain UK? After all; they're both McQuillons!

I'd like to see Dreadstar more in blog as well. Starlin sometimes changes established characters too much IMO but I think Dreadstar works in team ups and teams well as long as right team. He has appeared in blog only once.
