About

Hi. I’m beauty contest winning cartoonist Joey Peters. I’m here to talk about the Super Wizard Returns.
Stardust vs Yew Bee
Stardust vs Yew Bee

Stardust the Super Wizard was a mad alien god who came to Earth to mete out bizarre justice.

 It turned out Stardust was just too strange for our world and he vanished into obscurity soon afterward. Since then he’s shown up in occasional reprints or in the background of original stories, but nobody has tried to return him to life. Until now.  

YOU ARE NOW IN THE POWER OF STAR-DUST!!
YOU ARE NOW IN THE POWER OF STAR-DUST!!

Decades ago Stardust and his human consort Rosemary left the Earth behind. Since then they have toured the universe, Stardust showing Rosemary the GREATEST COSMIC WONDERS that YET EXIST--! But after so many years of this Rosemary’s thoughts have returned to her homeworld and try as he might, eventually Stardust couldn’t keep her distracted. 

 The Super Wizard left our world in the care of the Sixth Column, his child army given a fraction of his power. The Earth has become dominated by Stardust spinoff tech--weapons of incredible power. Violet McLane has spent her life trying to undo the damage Stardust did to our society. And Stardust’s old nemesis Yew Bee has survived, scavenging off scraps of cast off technology  

The Super Wizard Returns is a new original graphic novel by me, Joey Peters, with chapter title pages and a cover by Donna Martinez. It represents a new beginning for the strangest character from comic book history.

Here are a few sample pages selected at more or less random to avoid spoilers:

  

 

 

 

 Now let’s talk about backer rewards.

After that there's original art and commissions--want yourself or your boss to be tortured to a ridiculous level by Stardust?

Risks and challenges

This isn't my first rodeo--the comic is already complete and sitting on my hard drive. It could do with another editing pass but that's it. And I've printed comics many times before. The scale is a little different, nothing more.

The main problem I can foresee would be too much success--getting stuck with fulfilling way more copies than I originally intended. And there's ways to dealing with that.
