Some might complain about the complex story, or the fact that you probably really need to have read the previous work (highly recommended by the way) to make complete sense of the plot, but quite honestly it's rare that you get an adult SF comic that is written by and for adults that doesn't contain all the usual tropes, and gratuitous nudity and violence. This has nudity and violence, and humour, aliens ,starships and the galactic girl guides but it still seems fresh and fun..
My originals were from the mid-eighties and the difference in clarity, colour and impact is outstanding.
This is a series that you need to concentrate and focus when you're reading - there are visual details not pointed out in the text, and some non-linearity to the story; but it more than repays the effort.
I’ve been a HUGE fan of Starstruck ever since it’s appearance in the November 1982 issue of Heavy Metal magazine. I was already familiar with artist Michael Wm. Kaluta’s illustrations and was delighted to see his style — sort of a cross between the lushness and whimsy of Windsor McKay and the often stark surrealism of Mœbius — applied to cartooning. Elaine Lee’s writing was beyond lush and whimsical — simultaneously humorous and rich in complexity. To me Starstruck will always be one of the first works to truly be considered a “graphic novel,” or at the very least, THE first post-modern graphic novel.
As an aside, anyone interested in the upcoming feature film, Valerian (and The City of A Thousand Worlds) should check out Starstruck to see a somewhat contemporaneous space opera graphic novel.
