It'sDick Giordano's birthday today, And here's a belter of a strip to celebrate. I know I keep banging on about how great a comic Star*Reach was, but that's only because it was. ( Sometimes it's easy being right ). From the second issue, here's an absolute masterpiece of design and layout, the one and only outing for futuristic heroine Stephanie Starr. Steph' began life as a potential back-up to ( I think ) a DC book, before eventually finding her place here. It's a strip that's very of the time, but your girlfriend'll love the last page.
I also find it funny that in Twomorrow's biography of Giordano, Changing Comics, One Day At A Time, there are a few pages from this strip reprinted. Except there, Steph' found time to put a top on!
As Bill Hicks would say: Don't protect me, I'm an adult...
