HAS JIM STARLIN'S STAR BURST?
The title of the post being, of course, mere word-play, based on the
name of the magazine that this JIM STARLIN three-page strip comes
from, although it may have appeared earlier elsewhere. (Anybody know?)
The strip itself is dated 1975, but it was in 1978 that it appeared in issue #2
of STARBURST, a magazine produced by DEZ SKINN. I'd hazard a guess
and say that not many people will have seen it before (the strip, not the mag)
so it's a bit of a collectors' item if I'm correct in my assumption. As always,
someone will be sure to tell me if I'm wrong, but I'm a big boy now - I can
take it. Could it have first appeared in a fanzine called GEMINI, as that
name appears alongside an earlier date of '72 on the last page? That, of
course, would mean Jim didn't draw it in '75, so if anyone knows
the score regarding the different dates, feel free to share.
Anyway, all you Starlin fans - enjoy!
