Starchild –The Wanderer’s Tale, signed by James A. Owens and dated 1995. Dimension: approximately 24 ½” x 18 ½” including the frame. Starchild (comics) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia states: "Starchild was a densely illustrated fantasy comic book self-published in the 1990s by James A. Owen. There were 24 issues total, and the series has been collected in a boxed set of reprints titled The Essential Starchild from Owen's Coppervale Press. Starchild’s sales never matched those of Cerebus or Bone, and Sim eventually dissolved ties with Owen — but not before responding to Owen's "Serbius" spoof by giving Starchild’s boggle-eyed barkeeper character Martin Humble a surprisingly substantial role in the graphic novel Guys. Five issues of Starchild were published by Image Comics, and Owen continued to appear at the San Diego Comic Con with a massive Starchild display featuring life-sized animatronic characters. In recent years Owen has reinvented himself as a novelist, with a fantasy trilogy titled Mythworld meeting with success in Germany. The material has been kept in print in the six-volume Essential Starchild trade paperbacks through Owen's Coppervale Press Imprint, and a one-volume edition, originally planned for late 2006, ended up being funded through Kickstarter in July 2013.[1] A trade paperback French translation of Starchild: Awakenings was released by Kymera Comics in the Fall of 2005, and additional volumes are forthcoming."
