Starlight #4

I don't know why it took me so long to pick up Starlight. I like space opera, it's written by Mark Millar and the art is gorgeous. I should have had this sucker in my stack at the checkout the first time I wandered past it. For some reason though I ignored it and now I'm kicking myself because this is one of the best comics I've read in a long time. A send up to the space serials of old, it follows Duke McQueen, a Buck Rogers type who in his youngers years freed an alien world from tyranny just to return to Earth and have no one believe. Now an aging widower, his life is turned upside down when an alien rebel seeks his help and sets him on the course to adventure once again. I've recommended issue 4 because it's the most recent one. That said, I'd urge you to go out and buy the two before it as well because I'm confident you'll love the series as much as I did.
