The second in our series reprinting the classic Dreadstar tales includes the Eclipse Comics’ graphic novel The Price, Marvel/Epic’s Dreadstar graphic novel, and the solo Dreadstar story that appeared in Epic Illustrated #18. These chapters introduce the new cast of characters who accompany Vanth Dreadstar on his mission to end the devastating war between the Instrumentality and the Monarchy. Once again, Fate beckons Vanth - this time in the form of a wizard named Syzygy Darklock. Both are forced to relinquish what is closest to them in the name of a higher calling - their price for saving humanity. As they do battle with demon mystics, evil priests, bloodthirsty kings, and robot armies, they face their own inner demons and haunted memories, and overcome galactic obstacles to implement the mysterious Plan M. This epic starts as a mystical detective novel and slowly grows into an adventure tale of intergalactic proportions with a tortured hero at its center.
