I loved all of those revolutionary books in the 80’s, but I love this one more.

Why? Because it has all their strengths combined, which makes it more layered, devious, epic, and hilarious. And more rewarding to the hip reader who wants to think while laughing their head off. Like THE WIRE or WATCHMEN, you don’t grasp it in a glance. You strap in and thrill to one of the richest journeys you’d ever want to take.

Riot grrrls, Indie rebels, manga mobs, comix renegades, seize the moment: this is your book!!

It might be helpful to know that Michael and I never planned Starstruck to be cut up into small segments. It was planned as a graphic novel, to be followed by more graphic novels. At the time we started work on the project, there weren’t many comics being produced in the U.S. that were not superhero books. Though Starstruck has an American sensibility, we patterned ourselves on the books coming out in Europe at the time. But this is such a big project that IDW could only take it on by releasing it first as a comic series, then as collections. Once the comic series finishes, the whole Starstruck series will be collected into its own book and the Galactic Girl Guides into theirs – hopefully, with more to come!
