By definition is an adjective ” dramatic entertainment featuring the gruesome or horrible” or more aptly the ninth volume of the Starman opus…when evil comes to darken the Opal, and heroes blood runs on the streets. In our journey perspective this story brings to a climaxing crescendo not only the story line of the series up to this point, but in true Robinson fashion, the story line of the Starman legacy up to this point.

I guess Grumpy Old Fan of CBR (Comic Book Resource) is right, with the DC New 52 stripping the post-Crisis legacy super heroic element they have lost a huge chunk of their heroes souls.  This opus proves it.

For it relates to us our own story, when we hit the true epic turning point of our lives where everything shifts gears, we are building upon the legacy of our ancestors before us. Into the microscopic, we are groing up to and concluding chapters of our own novel to that point before stepping into the next chapter, or better yet, the next volume.

For this is the epic conclusion to Ted’s story (the original Starman) and his arch nemesis, The Mist, and allows  Jack (current Starman) to truly emerge into the book of his own adventure.

How do the conclusion of our parents’ stories embark us into our own adventure?

How does what has brought us to each major fork int he road prepare us for the path chosen to ignite a new chapter?

What is the next book of your life ready to open that you just need to close off the current one?
