Silver Star is essentially a cross between Captain America and Superman reimagined for the nuclear-paranoid 1970s, America's own personal superhero dealing with menaces beyond the scale of most ordinary people. Jai Nitz takes this premise and gives it a spin that recalls H.P. Lovecraft as much it does as Kirby. He shows a being that can do anything but ultimately chooses to strike a balance with the rest of the planet. The first scene in the Nursery brilliantly illustrates the horrific costs implicit in attempting to "fix" the world. The bad guys are appropriately less than obvious and at least one of them is a joke that only he doesn't get.
The one weakness of this story is the fact that it focuses so heavily on the demi-gods present. The human cast and scale are not as emphasized, which I feel weakens it a bit. However, anyone who would like proof of what comics can do in terms of storytelling can do much worse than this collection.
