SILVERSTAR1COVER.jpgImage Comics has announced it has collected Jack Kirby’s Silver Star epic and will be selling a hard bound 144-page edition this July.

Originally published during Kirby’s stint with Pacific Comics during the 1980s, SILVER STAR chronicles the rise of Homo-Geneticus, a New Breed of humanity, genetically altered to survive an impending holocaust. Morgan Miller discovers he is Homo-Geneticus when his reality-warping abilities erupt doing his tour of duty in Vietnam. Encased in a silver suit to contain his blossoming powers, Miller is dubbed Silver Star. Another Homo-Geneticus, the nefarious Darius Drumm, is bent on world-domination and vows to slay the others, saving Silver Star for last. What follows is both heartbreaking and explosive. Silver Star faces a deadly adversary like no other in this Kirby classic.

Silver Star is one of the few creations Jack Kirby actually owned.
