Publication history

Issues

Issue #1 Gotham Grey Evil

Issue one was published January 1999 with a cover by Mike Mignola.

In the story when Golden Age Starman, Ted Knight, is kidnapped by neo-Nazi skinheads, whilst giving a lecture on alternative energy sources, Batman and Hellboy team-up to rescue him. The duo eventually track the group calling itself the Knights of October to a deserted airfield but in the ensuing battle their leader Dantz escaped with the prisoner on board a small plane. Hellboy vows to go after him but Batman is called away to deal with an escaped Joker so Ted’s son the new Starman, Jack Knight, joins the mission.

Issue #2 Jungle Green Horror

Issue two was published February 1999 with a cover by Tony Harris.

Batman bids farewell as Hellboy and Starman board Bruce Wayne’s private jet for the trip into the Amazon Rainforest and as soon as they bail out of the plane over their target they come under fire. Once they penetrate the defences they learn that Dantz is using Knight’s scientific knowledge to reanimate the demonic Suggor Yogeroth. Hellboy invokes an ancient Lemurian incantation to dispel the demon and the duo are able to drive it back and release the captive Knight.
