Comic Book creation and legend Jim Starlin along with inking sensation Jaime Jameson Discuss Dreadstar Returns now available on Ominous Press.
One thing that comic book legend did not expect to do after suffering a debilitating hand injury was not only to bring back the character of Dreadstar, but to also be drawing all 100 plus pages of the character.
For those unfamiliar with Starlin’s work, he is the creator of Thanos, Gamora, Drax, the Infinity Gauntlet, Shang-Chi and so many more characters that have been featured across platforms.
In addition to the Dreadstar Returns graphic novel, the Kickstarter campaign is offering the Dreadstar Guidebook, a 100-page hardcover companion volume chronicling the history and characters from the saga. The Who’s Who-style volume is written by Robert Greenberger, the dean of such projects, who is responsible for many of the comic guidebooks on shelves.
Jameson’s relation to Starlin begins with what she claimed was almost a stalking story in that she chased after him to get a Doctor Doom sketch from the legendary artist and writer. Once Starlin relented and drew his first sketch after his hand injury, this opened the door for his recovery and the eventual pairing of the two to revive and complete the Dreadstar Returns graphic novel.
Jameson almost plays down her skills in the interview because she is so new to the business and still learning but if Jim Starlin trusts you with 100 plus pages of his latest graphic novel, then you cannot be doing something wrong, no matter how much she professes she put down the worst line she’s ever drawn on one of the pages.
