The classic 1970s science fiction newspaper strip predates Star Wars—and nearly 40 years after its debut, remains fresh and exciting for new generations of sci-fi and fantasy fans. Reprints more than 300 strips in a unique two-tier format, seven days a week. The Library of American Comics edition reproduces each strip on its own page so readers can relish Gil Kane’s incredible achievement. Included are all strips from August 11, 1978-June 10, 1979. Star Hawks takes place in the “Barnum System” that Ron Goulart used in several of his novels.
- “Gil Kane would acrobatically choreograph his characters as they literally glided in and out of panels. He refined his approach to movement and anatomy until it was possible to identify Kane’s stories through their unique dynamics…”—from Daniel Herman’s Gil Kane appreciation.
- Advance solicited for November release!
