    Mike Grell Starslayer #1 Complete 25-Page Story Original Art (Pacific, 1982).
    Starslayer was a pivotal book in the days of the early 1980s alternative comics. It was not only a high-water mark for Space Opera style stories, and one of Mike Grell's most defining works, it would also launch the Rocketeer, Grimjack, and Groo from backup stories into their own books. Included here is the complete 25-page story "The Legend of Starslayer". The pages are ink over graphite on Bristol board with the 17 single pages having an image area of 10" x 15", and 4 two-page spreads with combined image areas of 21" x 15". All text is paste-up on acetate overlays, some of which have slipped down or come loose. The page numbered as "27" has a large photostat paste-up as Panel 2. Page 31 is a large photostat paste-up for the entire panel. Slight toning and edge/corner wear. Some pages have corners and top edges trimmed, but overall these over-30-year-old pages are still in Very Good condition.
