    One thought on “Starstruck Deluxe Edition”

    1. Well, this was disappointing (though 2 stars may be a tad harsh). Kaluta has an amazing sinuous, sensual line, and a lot of the pages look great, but as many are overly busy and hard to parse. As for the story, . . . well, there isn't one, really. This is cobbled together from various earlier graphic novels and series (and a few extras from heaven knows where), and it ultimately just doesn't add up to a coherent package. The "main" story seems like a prologue (it actually IS a prologue, to somet [...]

    2. I know this comic has something of a cult classic status, but it just didn't do it for me. I spent the entire time confused by what was going on - it took me a second read-through to figure out what the plot was. Too much extraneous detail, and that's coming from someone who enjoys ridiculous worldbuilding! I also don't have much patience for over-the-top silliness or political machinations, which Starstruck is rife with, so this isn't a series that would draw me in normally even if it weren't a [...]

    3. Starstruck strikes me as a kind of feminist Heavy Metal. Visually it's fantastic, with some outstanding, painfully detailed work by Michael Kaluta and Charles Vess. But narratively it's an incoherent mess. Aside from the clownish "Brucilla the Muscle," it's unclear who any of the characters are, what they want, what the story actually is, or why we should care. The comic is amusing if you let each individual issue wash over you in a tide of stream-of-consciousness outer space wackiness, but in t [...]

    4. ¿Una novela gráfica feminista creada en los años 80? Pues sí. Es una lectura compleja, donde a veces hay que dejarse llevar y confiar en que lo que no se entiende en un momento dado se aclarará más tarde (y así es). Si tan sólo fuera autoconclusiva estaría a la altura de otros cómics de la época como Watchmen o El Incal.

    5. If there were a status call re-reading instead of read I'd put it in this category. There is so much to enjoy about this--the story that keeps looping around itself, the interconnection of the main characters (most of them strong and/or brainy women, the wonderful drawing (think Moebius/Druillet). Then there are the details such as the Jars with the embossed trademarks, the language and measures of time--marbecs, martrons, malton units, the fully realized universe, and the characters themselves- [...]

    6. The most playful and satisfying science fiction graphic novel ever rendered.A friend introduced me to an issue of Heavy Metal Magazine (the English version of Metal Hurlant) many years back that had an episode of Starstruck. I was immediately captured by the superb drawings by Kaluta and the Lee’s enigmatic non-linear story line. It was beautiful: science fiction with women in the lead!Heavy Metal introduced me to Moebius (Arzach), Philippe Druillet (Lone Slone), and Tamburini (RanXerox). But [...]

    7. Dense, free-wheeling, absurdist space opera which requires close reading, not just because of the coherently incoherent plot, but to enjoy the intricate artwork and multiple visual asides, many of which prefigure plot elements to come and are an essential part of the narrative.I have vague memories of reading some of this back in the eighties and being largely mystified, although entranced by Kaluta's beautiful art-nouveau-by-way-of-Moebius inflected artwork, and I have to say it makes only slig [...]

    8. Ok, first of all, I didn't know what I was getting into with this comic. I thought it looked like nifty sci fi. Which isn't far from the truth, I guess. The main storyline, the reprinted issues at the front, were pretty alright. An entertaining enough story, though, like in any good science fiction, the well-imagined world took some parsing out and getting used to. It feels like it ends mid-story, though. Then there's an encyclopedia, which has a lot of useful explanation, but it's really dry an [...]

    9. Dense worldbuilding, great art (though I'm not a big fan of the digital colouring). Story-wise, this feels a lot like the first few chapters of a much longer novel, introducing a lot of intriguing characters and showing us how some of them meet for the first time. This is a comic that warrants a reread or three, preferably on paper (I read the digital version), because it's the kind of story that makes you want to go back and read earlier parts again, and forward, to check the glossary, all the [...]

    10. Listening to the audiodrama (30 min so far). I have no idea what is happening.UPDATE:Some of the comics are online, but I just don't get it. It looks good though. I keep hearing that it's goodarstruckcomics/galacticgirlguides/Comics Journal review.

    11. This comic was a precursor to the Swamp Thing and Sandman-fueled adult comics boom. It's really phenomenally illustrated, experimental in style, and has a loose, sprawly narrative that's pretty charming. There's a little too much "special edition" padding, but the touched up coloring is incredible. Starstruck is really, really worth a read, especially if you like smart, typology-defying female characters.

    12. I may get back to this, but the absurdity of the story and characters, coupled with the overt "adult" sexuality and text disinterested me. I have so many things on my to-read list that I'm not sure I'm prepared to invest the effort in concentrating on "getting it" while overlooking elements I generally don't enjoy. There seemed to be some redeeming humor and creativity, but there is just so much junk (to me) to sift through that I'm not sure I can do it.

    13. Maybe I will give this a higher rating next time I read it, because I should understand the narrative the second (or maybe third) time around. Wanted this to be the perfect book since the art is so elaborate and the world has been so deeply detailed. But detail doesn't make a story. But it certainly is fascinating, and something I will dive into again later to get a better understanding.

    14. I had to read this twice and I still doubt I caught most of the stuff that's going on. I think it might have been better served if the "Ordering Anarchera" were at the front of the book, but that's just because I don't really like having to go back and re-read things. Ahead of its time.

    15. Lee & Kaluta's sprawling space epic is a wonder. Gorgeous art and a wide-ranging story full of intriguing ideas and awful puns. So happy to have the comics collected in one book. Now I need to listen to the audio adaptation of the play.

    16. The best and most essential Graphic Novel people have yet to discover. A complex and hilarious story with wondrous art laced with innovations that preceded everything that Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, and Grant Morrison are more-uniformly praised for. Absolutely brilliant!

    17. This is a strange graphic novel set in a really well-developed universe. I enjoyed reading it but had a hard time following - if only I realized there was literally an encyclopedia of this 'verse in the middle of the book.

    18. A little bit weird, and possessing a sometimes-challenging narrative, but still fun. Kaluta's art is beautiful as always.
