Selling all four issues of _Star Slammers_, published under Malibu's Bravura imprint May 1994-February 1995. Longtime fans of Walt Simonson will recall that this series is quite old, having been created and introduced at the 1974 World Science Fiction Convention, and led to his employment at DC Comics. These characters also appeared in a Marvel Graphic Novel in 1983 before appearing here. The issue covers indicate that it is a five-issue series, but only four were published by Malibu prior to its purchase by Marvel, who then proceeded to cancel a great number of Malibu's titles.
In Simonson's words this series takes place in "a world of big guns and big wars, the Star Slammers are a race of men that can kill, fight, and shoot better than anyone in the galaxy. The Slammers are mercenaries, paid vast sums and considered unstoppable." One day the unthinkable happens. While running a strike-and-sweep operation against a “backwater galactic empire,” a Slammer named Rojas gets cut off and captured. He is the first Star Slammer ever to be taken alive. As this series begins, Rojas has been immobilized and is being carried back to homeworld aboard a starship filled with soldiers to an unknown fate. What follows is not only a great conspiracy story but also a great adventure story!
Comics fans will recognize Walt Simonson (who both writes and draws) from his work on titles ranging from _Detective Comics_ to _Thor_ to _X-Factor_. To be clear, these are the original series issues, NOT the "remastered" issues on IDW that reprint the Marvel graphic novel and these stories with new covers.
All issues are in excellent condition with cover gloss and color intact and very little spine stress. Of course I'd be happy to combine shipping with any of my other items (you may message me for an updated invoice or I can refund any extra shipping paid).
