Official Press Release
San Diego, CA (April 27, 2013) – IDW Publishing is proud to announce that for the first time, Christian Gossett’s acclaimed series THE RED STAR will be collected into a deluxe hardcover format!
This fall, fans of THE RED STAR can look forward to a new presentation of all four of the series’ volumes, complete with a wealth of bonus material from Gossett’s archives.
“IDW has raised the industry standard with its deluxe line, and THE RED STAR is known for its world-class production value, so this is a match made in heaven,” said Gossett. “I’m proud that our long-time readership will at last be offered the lavish version they deserve, and to give new readers their best opportunity yet to discover this unique and ongoing saga.”
THE RED STAR began with The Battle of Kar Dathras Gate in 1999. A fiercely unique fusion of imaginative technology, a deep, fully-realized universe, and a Soviet-influenced aesthetic, the series was a massive success, leading to three more volumes and incarnations as video and role-playing games. Though it was published in oversized trade paperbacks, fans have never before been able to find all of THE RED STAR in a deluxe format, but that’s about to change.
“Red Star remains one of the most imaginative and visually stunning creator-owned projects of the last 15 years,” said IDW’s President, Greg Goldstein. “We’re delighted to be able offer it in the deluxe format it truly deserves.”
This fall, fans of skyfurnaces, immortal Soviet sorcerers, and other denizens of the singular world of THE RED STAR need look no further than IDW Publishing!
