Jack Knight was not the first to be called Starman. There were others: among them were Jack's brother David; Mikaal, a castaway from the stars; Gavyn, the prince of a distant galactic empire; and Jack's father - Ted Knight. These are their stories...

Times Past is an interesting collection of short tales which unearth the history of those that have taken the Starman persona, fighting for truth and justice. The collection starts in modern-day America, then travels to various points in history including 1882, 1930s, 1976 and sometime in the not too distant future.

A number of Starman's enemies are included, but The Mist is possibly the most intriguing. Here we see why The Mist spared Starman's life when he could easily have killed him and how, years later, Starman repaid the favour by saving The Mist's life.

The producers of Smallville are currently in the process of bringing Starman to the small screen and I am very much looking forward to seeing the results.

This is an above average collection that should whet your appetite until a pilot TV show is produced.
