The Twentieth Anniversary Nearly-Complete Essential StarChild
AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC AT LAST! The massive, beautiful book that was funded by a tremendously successful Kickstarter campaign is now available to purchase. Everything that was ever published in the StarChild comics by James A. Owen — and a lot of additional material — is included in this 704 page limited edition hardcover. All of the stories, including the first two storylines, AWAKENINGS and CROSSROADS; the “Little Neil” short stories from the anthology NEGATIVE BURN; the long story “Hobblesmith;” the unfinished MYTHOPOLIS chapters that have never been reprinted; all the development sketches and notes; guest illustrations and art features from some of James’s pro friends; literally everything that had been associated with the title StarChild — as well as the first draft of the Prologue and first chapter of the forthcoming illustrated novel, Fool’s Hollow.
Everything has been rescanned from the original art and digitally cleaned for the highest quality reproduction, and James has also hand-retouched several of the pages to both assure the final quality of the work, as well as alter (slightly) a few of the more mature-reader-oriented pages to make this edition more family-friendly for younger readers. The book includes a color tip-in plate (our choice) on the signature page (and a few doodled drifting leaves); a matching ribbon bookmark, and is limited to just two thousand copies (850 of which were delivered to the Kickstarter supporters). 7 3/8″ x 10 1/4″ on heavy coated stock, with a gold logo on a blue leatherette cover that includes a tipped-in cover plate, and heavy matching endpapers.
PLEASE NOTE: There is NO WAY to guarantee that orders placed will mean the book will be received in time for Christmas, even with more expensive expedited shipping. Sorry!
