Highly Recommended. By Ron Goulart. Art by Gil Kane. The classic 1970s science fiction newspaper strip, the only comic strip to be produced in a two-tier format, thereby greatly expanding how Kane could lay out each installment. Each strip is on its own page so readers can relish Kane's incredible achievement. Nearly 40 years after its debut, Star Hawks still looks fresh and exciting. This first of three volumes reprints more than 300 double-sized strips and includes an introduction by Ron Goulart, with rare promotional material and a photo of Ron and Kane in their studio!

Star Hawks was a two-fisted space opera, as Gil Kane, fresh off his work at DC and Marvel Comics, brought his best and most dynamic style to play. Giant space ships (a la Star Wars), good characterization, beautiful leading ladies, cool robots both good and evil...this has it all. As mentioned above, Gil Kane REALLY had a good time with the expanded layout size, creating all manner of unique panels to best propel his story forward. It's a fun strip, and here are hours of good reading and excellent draftsmanship.
