The classic 1970s science fiction newspaper strip created by Ron Goulart and Gil Kane is coming back in a big way. The only comic strip to be produced in a two-tier format, the Library of American Comics edition will reproduce each strip on its own page so readers can relish Kane’s incredible achievement. Nearly 40 years after its debut, Star Hawks still looks fresh and exciting. This first of three volumes reprints more than 300 double-sized strips and includes an introduction by Ron Goulart.
“We throw the phrases ‘classic’ and ‘legendary’ so lightly that the words have lost most of their meaning, yet maybe here’s a book that can restore some of the intended luster of the terms. Now readers get a chance to see how Star Hawks stands up nearly four decades later. The answer: superbly, and it benefits from the usual excellent LOAC presentation, which includes more than 300 double-sized strips, an introduction by Ron Goulart, and an essay by Hermes Press’ Daniel Herman.” —Scoop
