At the start of the Random Chat (our other Podcast) Matt and host Paul discussed Mark Millar and Goran Parlov's sci-fi tale. For both of them the series was a great success and now that series is coming to trade.
All six issues will be included in the trade and it will be released in Comic Book shops from the 11th of Feb with other outlets coming out a few weeks later as is the norm.

A sweeping science fiction epic, STARLIGHT features Millar’s most heartfelt storytelling to date, while Parlov depicts with equal skill a dazzling alien planet and and old man’s loneliness with his gorgeous, Moebius-esque art. Duke is returning to Tantalus a legendary hero, but is he still the man he was forty years ago?
“The whole character just seemed to pour out the moment I started writing him,” said Millar of Duke in an interview on Image Comics’ website, “and I found myself really caring about him. His life is like any of our father's or grandfather's, except for this one amazing thing that happened forty years ago, and so as the first issue closes and he gets a chance to go back we're really with him on that journey.”
A must-read for anyone who wants their sci-fi to have a sense of wonder, STARLIGHT will be in comic book stores on February 11 and in bookstores on February 24. It is available for pre-order now. It is currently in development at Fox as a feature film.
