I admit it. I bought every issue of Silver Star, but never really followed the plots too well. Perhaps like Jack's oddball Galactic Rangers title, the word balloons were filled with "word jazz" that made little sense. Besides, how was Captain Victory the superior officer to a Major? But I digress...

This is a excellent collection of Silver Star! The best part is the BRIGHT WHITE HEAVYWEIGHT paper, like the Baxter paper Pacific printed these on on originally. Well worth the pittance this hardcover costs.

The only downside? No dust jacket...which I always remove and press flat anyway...so no foul!

This is an insane read. One so bizarre that it veers toward a "meta" vibe precursor to Grant Morrison or even the strangeness of a Daniel Clowes. The dialogue bares little resemblance to actual human speech, and the plots are so wild and jumpy as to be pretty much incomprehensible. But instead of being drawbacks, these traits are wielded so passionately by Kirby that they become strengths. You will enter into a surreal alternate dimension when reading this, which in my mind is the greatest thing a comic can achieve.

Jack Kirby is a legend in American comic books. He created or co-created Captain America, Thor, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. In the 70s he went on to create less-famous but still prominent characters like the New Gods and the Demon.

In the 80s he worked with Pacific Comics to publish creator-owned titles, finally realizing his dream of comic creators owning their own works, just like ordinary authors. His move to Pacific comics also saw one of the first times a publisher upgraded the paper stock for better printing.

Silver Star continues some of the themes he'd developed earlier, Silver Star, like Captain America, is the product of military experiments. But he is far more powerful than any hero who preceded him, able to rearrange matter with his mind, creating castles, vehicles and anything else he can imagine. Against him is the evil Darius Drumm, a cult leader and product of the same experiments. Between them are other products of the experiments including Great Masai 'the Goliath of the Ghetto'. The conflict builds towards a suitably epic climax with whole cities being destroyed but then ends abruptly, as if someone told Kirby he only had one page to wrap everything up.

The book raises deep issues of humanity becoming obsolete as the supermen emerge and of battles where the human race is nothing but a bystander.

But the work is seriously flawed. It lacks subtlety, the characters rant and rave and act like, well, comic book characters. Plot points are introduced and dropped quickly. And the ending is very unfulfilling.

In the introduction, we learn that Kirby wrote the book with little or no input from editors or the publisher and even asked them not to publish negative letters. Even the publishers admit the work was rough.

So Silver Star is an interesting piece of comic book history and of Jack Kirby's body of work, but not a particularly great comic.

I'll admit that Kirby's writing prowess was not quite the equal of his artistic skill and imagination. However, his writing worked for his art. I have a modest & slowly-growing Kirby collection. I have various collections of his work for both Marvel and DC as well as The Fighting American. I'm glad to add Silver Star to that collection.

From what I can tell, both Silver Star and his archfoe, Darius Drumm, are far more powerful than any of Kirby's other creations. I'm comparing them to Marvel's Thor, The New Gods, and even The Eternals. I haven't been able to get ahold of the Captain Victory collection, so the jury's still out on that one. I agree with some of the other reviewers that the story for Silver Star was better fleshed out in the movie script. Even though the ending wasn't what I wished it could've been, I prefer it to the non-ending in the OMAC series. It's just as well that Silver Star didn't end up at Marvel or DC because I honestly don't think they really would've done this character justice. DC probably would've incorporated Silver Star and Darius Drumm in the New Gods tapestry and Marvel probably would've folded them into The Eternals. I'd prefer to remember these characters as Kirby left them.

I got the full-color version (not the graphite edition) for a sweet price and I'm happy with my purchase. If you are a Kirby fan (like myself) or completist, add this book to your collection before the price goes up. I wouldn't bet on this book getting another print run.

While I'm not reviewing the story here (you either like Kirby's weirder, wild independent work or you don't), I would like to say that the actual hardcover produced of Silver Star is GORGEOUS. Oversized, dazzling color, a historical introduction by the original publisher, along with the screenplay treatment of the proposed SS movie and unused cover sketches -- I don't know how a better tribute to this series could have been produced. Excellent job Image!

Silver Star was originally planned by Kirby as a movie. This is somewhat evident in the way the series was written. The art is not New Gods or Fantastic Four quality but definately really good for Kirby in his early 70s.

Fun ride of a story as all Kirby's big concepts can be. I enjoyed rereading the series.

No reasonable Kirby enthusiast or comicbook historian would claim SILVER STAR is among Kirby's best work. That being said, if this is "bad Kirby", it stands as a testament to Jack's brilliance. The storyline and dialog would no doubt have benefited from an editor or script writer but who cares? We get full, uncensored Kirby in all its zany glory! There is some great art: beautiful splash pages and energy and explosions that crackle off the page! The book includes and interesting introduction, Kirby's script for a proposed SILVER STAR movie and some behind the scene sketches from the King. At $34.99 retail I would call it a little pricey, but well worth the Amazon discounted cost.
