Overview

The classic, galactic-spanning saga of Starstruck, the renowned stage play, radio drama, heady science fiction classic, continues!
Collecting all 13 issues of the completely remastered Starstruck series by Elaine Lee and Michael Kaluta! That's 280-pages of Starstruck and Galactic Girl Guides adventures, covers, pin-ups, glossary, postcards, and so much more! The first truly comprehensive collection of this material in a grand, oversized edition, this beautiful book features some of the finest art ever put to paper by Kaluta, including many pages that were never printed in the original run. Additionally, Kaluta painstakingly added approximately 20% of art to nearly every page to ensure the aspect ratio of the comic would be consistent and correct. The end result is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced — a head-spinning, synapse-snapping, soul-searing ride to a world like no other… the world of Starstruck!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This brain-bending SF epic is the type of book that once devoured, demands to be passed on to another unsuspecting reader with a meaningful look and a wistful sigh. It is not however the type of read that lends itself well to actually being pinned down in a description any longer than, "you must have this". Originally published in Heavy Metal in the 80s and expanded over the years, Starstruck is a soap opera, a space adventuring epic, and an ambitiously multi-layered visual treat that might just bend your mind. There is Galatia 9, a space faring adventurer with killer bow skills, and her new companion Brucilla the Muscle, a fierce and fun loving pilot running from her disgrace. Mary Medea who masquerades as the glamorous Queen Glorianna, and Erotic Anne, a sex droid who is achieving awareness. Verloona Ti and Lurcrezia Bajar are scorned sisters, manipulating those around them. Say goodbye to stories with a beginning, middle and end; plunge instead into a story that wraps around itself, creates new worlds in every panel, has a plethora of strong and intriguing female leads. Lee's quirky dialogue is more than matched by Kaluta's belle époque techno-finery. (Sept.)

Meet the Author

Elaine Lee has had incarnations as an EMMY-nominated actress and playwright, artistic director of a theatre company (Wild Hair Productions), comic book writer and color artist, animation writer and story editor, video game writer, and art director for a music company. Specializing in sci-fi, fantasy and horror, Elaine has created six original comic series (BrainBanx, Skin Tight Orbit, The Transmutation of Ike Garuda). She is best known as writer/creator of Vamps.

Michael Kaluta's early professional art appeared in pulp magazines, and the earliest comic book work appeared in various Charlton Comics. DC Comics was the Kaluta's main focus of the 1970s; drawing interiors and, eventually, covers for their House of Mystery and House of Secrets comic books. Covers for both Detective Comics and Batman were the next step, and, eventually, the nod to draw DC Comics 1970s versions of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Carson of Venus and Pulp Icon, The Shadow. The new century saw a Madame Xanadu five-issue comic book story arc, and Chaos King, a special 30-page stand-alone book in Marvel's Chaos War.

I love the art work in this book...I love everything about this book.  If you have been into comics as long as I have you will love this graphic novel. I must own book for comic addicts...it is a great fix for anyone that loves great graphics and story line.
