While very few publishers are producing any new content, Kickstarter is a place for creators to do their thing (and get paid). These crowdfunding projects are interesting in that sometimes you get an unknown upstart, and sometimes an industry legend. This case, it’s the latter with the return of Dreadstar from Jim Starlin. Yes, the creator of Thanos and Infinity Gauntlet writer Jim Starlin.
For those who may not know, Dreadstar was a comic published by Epic Comics back in the early 1980s, and it has developed a cult following over the years. For those looking for a unique space opera that’s also a throwback to the 1980s, then this might be for you.
For more on Dreadstar Returns, check out the excerpt below and the Kickstarter Campaign here.
The first all-new Dreadstar adventure in thirty years, written and illustrated by series creator and living legend JIM STARLIN, has arrived!
In coordination with the exciting release of Dreadstar Returns, Jim Starlin and Creation.Ink have also produced an official handbook to the Dreadstar universe, The Dreadstar Guidebook.
For almost three decades, fans of Dreadstar have pleaded with Jim Starlin to continue the adventures of Vanth Dreadstar and company. The long wait is finally over!
