DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers: Is Fan Favorite Starman Jack Knight Coming To The Flash? Plus What Is The Phantom Ring Plaguing The Green Lanterns?

Starman Jack Knight Omnibus with the Shade

DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers follow.

DC Comics released their DC Rebirth November 2016 solicitations. Here are two series to watch.

The Shade finally comes to DC Rebirth! The character and anything closely tied to writer James Robinson and artists Tony Harris and Peter Snjejbjerg Starman opus has had a reverence with fans and with DC brass. Only James Robinson has touched these characters in a significant way for the last 23 years. That stops with Rebirth. I loved that classic run, but there are capable creators that can touch Starman, Shade and others and treat them with respect and do right by them and the fans. The question is whether this Flash creative team to fill these big shows and take that responsibility on successfully. We’ll soon see.
