VFCast! Season 5 Episode 4 – Two Men, One Boy

Title: Batman/Starman/Hellboy Issue 1 & 2
Author: James Robinson
Artist: Mike Mignola
Publisher: DC & Dark Horse
Release Date: January 1999


This is a crossover book drawn by a very popular creator and written by a cult favorite about the most popular character in comics and his dudebros. James Robinson has a very devoted fan following (Cabel and Leland included) and Mike Mignola is an extremely influential writer/artist.

So why can’t I find anything about it online? Seriously, the Wikipedia entry isn’t even important enough to get tagged with the “it’s just a synopsis” tag. It is so unimportant that no one (us included) even cared to mark that it was a bad entry.

Why is that? This should be an important book, right? There are big things happening. It is Starman’s first multiverse crossover. It is Mignola’s first time to professionally draw Batman. It has semi-false advertising on the cover.

We enjoyed it, so I guess all my confusion is somewhat moot.
