Jim Starlin may not be a household name, but some of his major creations are becoming well-known to many audiences thanks to Marvel Studios. Starlin created Thanos for Marvel, and significantly developed characters such as Drax the Destroyer and Captain Marvel. He also wrote and drew Dreadstar, originally for Marvel’s offshoot imprint Epic, beginning in 1982. That character was in development as the basis for a film, but now things have changed, and the development effort is focused on a Dreadstar TV series.
This is a sprawling space opera focused on Vanth Dreadstar, last survivor of the Milky Way Galaxy, and his adventures amidst a war between two titanic empires.
