1st Issue Special #12 / Starman - Joe Kubert cover
First Issue Special v1 #12 featuring Starman, 1976 - DC introduces its bronze age version of Starman, a separate version of the golden age hero with no common traits. Joe Kubert draws an appropriately bold cover of the alien superhero, dodging a flying saucer's blast. The World Trade Center is prominently displayed in the background, though not in the story itself. Kubert's impressive effort is far superior to the interior art by Mike Vosburg. The issue also includes a fine Neal Adams public service ad, which appeared in several DC titles around the same month. This is number 2 of 2 First Issue Special issues with Kubert art and/or covers.

New format tweaks continue, hopefully improving the site. All posts now have large scans of both covers and interior pages. All scans are now captioned, credited to the featured artist on this blog. Any feedback is appreciated.
