1st Issue Special #12 / Starman - Joe Kubert cover

First Issue Special #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. See today's posts or more Kubert, or 1st Issue Special issues. See also this blog's Joe Kubert checklist.
