TONAWANDA, NY (August 20, 2019): Jim Starlin is best known for his cosmic epics, and the creation of characters like Thanos, Drax, Gamora, and many more, who have become recognized worldwide thanks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now Starlin’s most personal, beloved story may well be the DREADSTAR saga, which is now being collected in an Omnibus series remastered by Jim Starlin himself.
Starlin has teamed up with Creation.Ink and Ominous Press once again to present JIM STARLIN’S DREADSTAR OMNIBUS, a three-volume set collecting all of Starlin’s DREADSTAR saga, more than 1,500 pages of material. DREADSTAR is the cosmos-spanning tale of Vanth Dreadstar, last survivor of Milky Way galaxy, who assembles a band of misfits in order to take on the Lord High Papal’s Church of the Instrumentality, as well as the galaxy-controlling Monrachy.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Volume 1 has been printed and now is being offered on Indiegogo for anyone who missed the previous opportunity. The 512-page tome that collects the original Metamorphosis Odyssey presented in Epic Illustrated magazine, to the Dreadstar graphic novel, The Price graphic novel, the Epic Illustrated #18 short story, and the first eight issues of the standalone Dreadstar comic series. Bonus material in Volume 1 includes Starlin’s Metamorphosis Odyssey Portfolio, as well as the rare four-page Starlin story The Prayer.
Volumes 2 and 3 are at the printer now, and complete Starlin’s DREADSTAR saga, collecting up through issue #40 of the regular series, along with bonus material. Each volume features brand new cover art by Starlin. A slipcase designed to hold all three volumes also includes new Starlin art. Having injured his drawing hand in an accident, Starlin believed his drawing days were over. But he worked his drawing muscles into shape again, and painstakingly drew and colored these new covers and slipcase art... #dreadstar #jimstarlin #comics #indiegogo
