STAR BRAND was a moment best forgotten, as part of my career, and as part of Marvel history. When Howard Mackie, as editor, asked me if I would care to take on Jim Shooter's version of Green Lantern, I agreed, making a promise to myself that I would do the best STAR BRAND I could, not destroy it as everyone expected.

Circumstances made my best work difficult to achieve, and the parts did not come together as I had hoped. Nothing was actually destroyed, I just cannot recommend the series.

So, even tho I get royalties from this reprint, you all have my permission to pass it by!

I read it, still have them I think.
They're not that bad JB, I would think you were pretty limited as it being a different universe and all the Marvel characters you could use you couldn't and were stuck with the hand dealt to you. All in all it wasn't that bad, better than most stuff being printed today IMO.

Spider-Man has become the world’s favorite super hero — and together with Ross Andru, Keith Pollard and guest artists including John Byrne and Jim Starlin, Marv Wolfman will prove why!

Hey, what happened to Kirby's little finger nail nubs on the Panther's hands?

When I first read Star Brand as a kid, I found the scene that explored what would happen if death were eliminated to be thought-provoking.  When people do things for the benefit of society, they should consider the unintended consequences.

Marc, 
I'm not sure, but I would think they are.
I have the originals so I haven't bothered to look at the trade...
Remember only Vol. 2 has JB's work in it.

The first post in this thread has been updated to include the release of JB's adaptation of "The Cage" as the STAR TREK NEW VISIONS special edition:




I also added the AVENGERS BY JOHN BYRNE omnibus to the first post - it collects JB's amazing run on AVENGERS WEST COAST.
