Jim Starlin Writes And Draws New Dreadstar – And New Creator-Owned Work

dreadstar_1_0The Hollywood Reporter has the PR… Jim Starlin is to return to writing and drawing eighties classic sci-fi comic Dreadstar. Publisher… unknown.

"Drawing for me is a love-hate thing," he said. "It's a younger person's job. And so I tend to write for other people. But with this particular thing, I'm at a point financially that I can do whatever I want to at this point…and this is what I want to do." He added, laughing, "Right now I'm trying to decide what I want to Dreadstar's uniform to look like."

There isn't a publisher lined up – yet – as he wants to have several issues of the intended mini-series completed before seeking one out. (Starlin is also working on a series of six creator-owned one-shots but is keeping those details top secret for now.)

Is there anything not yet being revived, and announced during San Diego season?
