Returning To The Universe of Dreadstar

This review refers to the Kickstarter Reward ebook.

I absolutely loved the Dreadstar series when in first came out. I can't be sure without checking the long boxes, but I'm pretty sure that I still have my original copies.

I say that to let you know that this review may be tinged slightly by nostalgia. While Dreadstar is a very fun series, it does suffer from some problems associated with comics of the time. We've got characters talking to themselves so the reader knows what is going on, some repetitive explaining of what happened earlier (necessitated by the publication history).

All that being said, Dreadstar is a lot of fun and absolutely beautifully illustrated. This Omnibus edition has not part of the original run, but the preceding material as well. We get to see what shaped Dreadstar into the person he is, watch him recruited by Darklock, see him gather his crew, and all the shenanigans associated with them.This review refers to the Kickstarter Reward ebook.
