Jim Starlin returns to the crowdfunding universe for the continuation of his Dreadstar saga in the form of a new original graphic novel entitled Dreadstar vs. The Inevitable.
The new graphic novel is the first project to be released by new publisher Monkey Wrench Press, who plan to release a number of projects by Starlin in the future.
The storyline picks up at the conclusion of Dreadstar Returns (the first Dreadstar story in over thirty years) and Starlin says that “Working on Dreadstar again is like visiting old friends. But this go around has the additional benefit of me getting to actually work with other old friends like Ron Marz and new friends like Chris Scioli and the marvelously talented and beautiful Jaime Jameson.”
Monkey Wrench Publisher Chris Scioli praised the famed artist and writer, saying that “We couldn’t ask for a better partner than Jim Starlin to launch our publishing line. Helping Jim bring more Dreadstar into the world is an honor. We know he has more Dreadstar stories to tell beyond this one, and we intend to be here for all of them, as well as some other classic Starlin properties.”
The Kickstarter campaign for Dreadstar vs. The Inevitable offers backers the choice between digital and hardcover copies of the graphic novel, and additional perks such as the first softcover printing of Dreadstar Returns, a Dreadstar calendar, and signed lithographs featuring classic Starlin art.
The Kickstarter campaign is now live and wraps up on February 24, 2023.
