Ominous Press is proud to announce the Jim Starlin’s Dreadstar Omnibus Collection. Featuring more than 1,500 pages of classic Dreadstar action over three volumes, each page has been meticulously remastered by Jim Starlin himself, making this the definitive Dreadstar collection. The three-volume hardcover Omnibus Collection will gather the complete Dreadstar stories by cosmic master Jim Starlin. Volume 1 is a 512-page collection of Dreadstar’s journey, from the original Metamorphosis Odyssey presented in Epic Illustrated magazine, to the Dreadstar Graphic Novel, The Price graphic novel, the Epic Illustrated short story, and the first eight issues of the original standalone Dreadstar comic series. As an exclusive bonus, Jim Starlin’s Dreadstar Omnibus Volume 1 also features the original painted Metamorphosis Odyssey Portfolio, as well as a four-page bonus story, The Prayer. Whether you’re a longtime Dreadstar fan, or this is your first introduction to the acclaimed series, this volume is a massive, must-own masterpiece.
Dreadstar is the comos-spanning tale of Vanth Dreadstar, a powerful warrior and the lone survivor of the Milky Way Galaxy. Joined by his crewmates Oedi, Syzygy Darklock, Willow, and Skeevo, the team finds themselves in the middle of an ancient stalemate war between two forces of evil: The Church of Instrumentality, led by the all-powerful and misguided Lord Papal, and The Monarchy.
Near frozen and left for dead after the brutal slaying of his parents, Vanth Dreadstar is saved by the Sword of Power, giving him newfound might and abilities. With sword in hand, he travels the galaxy on a quest for revenge, but what he finds is much, much more.
Derived from an experimental race of cat people at the hands of The Church of Instrumentality, Oedi joins Vanth on his journey after an epic war destroys his people.
A blind telepath, Willow can not only influence sentient minds, but has the power to affect the minds of cybernetics and computers as well. Joined by her seeing-eye monkey Rainbow, Willow uses the power of her inner light, but is fueled by a dark past
Ravaged by his own mystical powers, Syzygy Darklock is kept alive only by cybernetic parts and a will to abolish evil. His faith makes him a ready companion and powerful ally in Dreadstar’s quest, but his heart remains focused on his own ambitions.
Freebooter Skeevo uses his friendship with Oedi to join the crew, and the fight. He serves as the ship’s lowbrow pilot.
A truly legendary writer and artist, Jim Starlin has blazed his own trail in comics for five decades. His expansive work spans every major publisher, and includes the creation of beloved characters including Thanos, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Mongul, and more.

Risks and challenges
Jim Starlin has remastered each individual page in the collection, and production work on all three volumes is almost complete. Our risk of not completing the collection is quite low. Each volume will need to be produced and printed. Volume 1 will be at the printer by the time this campaign starts, with Volumes 2 and 3 to follow.
Volume 1 will ship shortly after this campaign concludes. Volumes 2 and 3 will be sent to the printer, along with the deluxe slipcase, so that the Dreadstar Omnibus Collection can then ship in full together.
Paul Harding’s 1:6 scale Dreadstar statue is still in production. We’ve been told an estimated wait time for manufacturing can be to a full year. Statues will be shipped as soon as possible given that timeline.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
