Jim Starlins Magnum Opus - Dreadstar - goes back to the beginning as three complete masterpieces are collected here for the very first time! Containing Metamorphosis Odyssey, The Price and Dreadstar: the Graphic Novel - all fully painted by Starlin - are presented here in one definitive collection - fully re-mastered and ready to command a new legion of fans! The Metamorphosis Odyssey was first published in Epic Illustrated #1-9 (initially in black and white, later transitioning into full color) in the late 1970s and told the story of an immortal mystic named Aknaton, whose Osirosian race was the ancestor of all humanoid life in the Milky Way galaxy. The second part of the Metamorphosis Odyssey was originally an Eclipse graphic novel called The Price that told the story of the magician-priest Syzygy Darklock and his rise to power within the Church of the Instrumentality. The third part of the Metamorphosis Odyssey was the Marvel graphic novel Dreadstar originally published in 1982 and featured the return of Vanth Dreadstar! Now, all three parts are combined into one volume.
