In the tradition of the “Times Past” issues of STARMAN comes a story of revenge, murder and betrayal set in the 1940s! The Shade is just beginning his long criminal career, but when an industrialist who is helping with the war effort is targeted for assassination, the Shade surprisingly seeks to help save the man! Who is this man, and who is the strange woman on this issue’s cover? Find out more about the Shade’s true origin in this story illustrated by the amazing team of Darwyn Cooke and J. Bone!
Shade is, of course, the man of mystery from James Robinson’s epic Starman series. You can read all about the book here
and Shade himself here
. Shade has always been a man of mystery, and this will reveal more of his origins, but more, with the new Deathstroke in this title, but not JSA for Shade to have interacted with Starman, this is clearly a DCnU book. There must, therefore, be big changes to Shade, one’s we’ll likely find within this issue.
