James Robinson, who created the much-acclaimed Starman series in the mid-90s, is returning to helm The Shade #1 with artist Cully Hammer. This spin-off series, showing us that Mikaal Tomas has resumed the mantle of Starman, and continuity from Robinson's Justice League: Cry For Justice story is carrying over into the DCnU. But this series will focus on the eloquent Richard Swift, the mystically and mysteriously immortal shadow-manipulator known as The Shade.
