    Revival of a cult classic : kickstarter for 'Starstruck'

    Hi,

    This is my 1st post on the RPS forum, although I've been visiting RPS for years (I think it was around the time Armageddon Empires came out when I found RPS)
    Reason I registered is to get your attention on a certain comic book which appeared in 1982. It's called 'Starstruck' written by Elaine Lee and drawn by Michael Kaluta.



    So what is Starstruck?
    It's a space opera, a sci-fi noir. In the future humanity has expanded far into the galaxy and there is an ongoing feud between two families.
    The Bajar family (Ruthless corporate dictators) and the Medea family (Rebels and wealthy miners).
    The story doesn't focus on one character but revolves around several movers and shakers of the galaxy.
    Still worth mentioning are: Galatia 9 (aka Molly Medea) the amazon freedom fighter/warrior poet (I wouldn't say she is talented... but she tries) and Brucilla 'The Muscle' the hot head former galactic girl guide from Kansas.

    This kickstarter will continue the story with another character: Harry Palmer, hero of the Revolution, and Bartender/Owner of the Sailor’s Grave.

    Mike Carey and A.J. Lake, intro to Starstruck Deluxe Edition, 2011.
    "Reading Starstruck is like reading sci-fi written and drawn by J.S. Bach in the middle of an acid trip: fugues and choruses and multi-part harmonies of narrative, playing off each other in unexpected ways to produce delayed reveals, sting-in-the-tail pay-offs, devestating [sic?], poignant, and ironic juxtapositions."[74]


    You might think this sounds so strange, well it is strange and epic I kid you not!

    I'm not a good writer so I will post a few links with reviews ;)

    Now you might ask, if this is such a good comic why do they need a kickstarter?
    To quote Elaine
    "it’s always been more of a cult phenomenon, or perhaps a Love Baby, than a money maker. Bills must be paid!"

    Starstruck is not well known, but it is a diamond by the incredibly talented Elaine Lee and Michael Kaluta.
    Be sure to check it out. 33 hours to go.

    Cheers!
