Jim Starlin’s Dreadstar comic to get a series

Layout 1

The sci-fi, superhero comic, Dreadstar, will be getting its own series. It will be developed by Universal Cable Productions (UCP) and Benderspink, with Jim Starlin joining as the executive producer. Starlin, who created the comic, is also the man behind the creation of Thanos, Drax the Destroyer, and Gamora. Ford Gilmore will also be producing.

The Dreadstar comic was first introduced under the Epic Comics banner, an imprint of Marvel Comics. Vanth Dreadstar is a sole survivor of the Milky Way galaxy (that means we’re all dead) and has a team to help him on his adventures, one of them being the cyborg sorcerer Syzygy Darklock. They’re on a mission to stop the war between two evil empires: The Church of The Instrumentality and the Monarchy.

“I consider ‘Dreadstar’ to be an extension of my family, so it took me a while to feel comfortable letting anyone else take care of this project,” said Jim Starlin. “It has taken some time, but I know I’ve put my trust in the right team and I’m excited to collaborate with Universal Cable Productions and Benderspink to bring ‘Dreadstar’s’ unique brand of chaos to television.”

Fans should be looking forward to this, and if you haven’t heard of the comic, then perhaps the idea of a comic book sci-fi series should be enticing, just like how Guardians of the Galaxy was able to captivate the audience in theaters.
