    Default Will DC ever reprint Robinson's Starman?

    I've been trying to re-read the series and have Vols. 1-2 of Omnibus but Vol. 3 is very rare and hard to get *anywhere* for less than $150 at least.

    With all the other collections and omnibuses DC has put out in recent years, Starman feels like a glaring omission.

    Does anyone know the reason for this? Or if DC has any plans to rerelease the series somehow?

    DC started reprinted the omnibi in cheap paperback volumes, but it was solicited twice and cancelled for low pre-orders. There doesn't seem to be enough demand for it to be reprinted.

    I bought the entire run PLUS the first TPB from my local second hand bookstore for $80.00.
    I was pretty damn happy with that purchase.....
    I'm surprised there's a lack demand for this. Starman usually rates pretty high in reader polls for best run on a series.

    You should be able to find the individual trades of the vol 3 arcs for cheap on eBay. Hell I purchased the entire run of issues off eBay or the dollar bin of my comic shop. LOVE this series!

    Depending on how much of Robinson's Starman run might impact the upcoming Stargirl series, it would probably be a good time to re-release his Starman run/OMNI's and the original Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E.S book .

    YES!!!! While I feel Starman does get the love it deserves, Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E.S certainly does NOT get the love it deserves. Such an underrated series!

    I love it too! That's why I'm so eager to re-read it so many years later.

    Maybe I'd be able to find the relevant individual issues by shopping various LCS's in my city. I'll try that next.

    On Amazon, eBay, and elsewhere Omnibus Vol. 3 starts at around $150 though every other omnibus is around $20-30. It's Vol. 3 that's so rare that its price is cost prohibitive.

    If I can't find the single issues locally, I'll read them on comixology.

    Thanks for the comments, y'all.

    This is a great point. Maybe I'll hold out. I have a lot to read lately.

    Oh yeah you can definitely find those arcs/issues waaaaayyyy cheaper either at your LCS or eBay. By the way next month the DC Book of the Month Club will be starting Starman. Currently working our way through Kingdom Come if you are interested.
