So, the same team as the original. That's good. I'll have to seek it out.

If Starman had officially ended at #45, it would have won this poll for me, hands down. Loved the series, loved the art, loved pretty much everything about it until the disasterous, overlong trip into space, followed by the "WTF happened to this series" bit with the evil dwarf.

 

So, I'm going to have to go with the first 24 issues of Brubaker's Catwoman. (There are no issues numbered 25 and above, got it) Sad, sweet, action-packed, and occasionally violent in mature ways more suited to Vertigo than a mainstream Batbook, this series had it all.

 

A few other contenders who lived fast and died young:

 

Chronos

 

Chase

Funny....Everyone here pretty much agrees that the point where "Starman" goes into space is the low point for the series, and I think that "Swamp Thing"'s adventure in space (minus a few issues) was the point where Alan Moore's run died out.

Space and superheroes:Can it work?!

Christian -- Starman's journey into space is actually a rip-off/homage to the Swamp Thing Space saga, it happens on the same planets, and even deals with the reprecussions of My Blue Heaven, Adam Strange Episodes, the floral green lantern, and Starman even gets to meet Jor-El...

 

 

i guess DC's space frontiers should remain unexplored.
