I was, and am, a huge fan of Starstruck, which I think was one of the most brave and elegant experiments in comic book story-telling.
The basis for the critically acclaimed comic book series by Elaine Lee and Michael Wm. Kaluta, Starstruck was first presented in 1980 and 1983 as an off-off-Broadway play, written by Elaine Lee with Susan Norfleet and Dale Place.
In a far-flung and very alternative future, Captain Galatia 9 and the crew of the Harpy are on a mission for the United Federation of Female Freedom Fighters. When the Harpy runs into a living ship inhabited by a team of galactic evil-doers, including Galatia’s insidious sister Verloona Ti, the outcome of the battle may well decide the fate of the free Multiverse. Often hilarious, always surprising, Starstruck, is a spine-tingling joy-ride to the far side of the spiral arm!
