On September 4, Eth (Ethan Fleischer) posted his final preview frame and told everyone on SCDB that his comic would launch in a week. Tomorrow, it will be one week, so hopefully we should see some more updates sometime soon.
Although I have no idea what the plot will be for this comic, I’ll post some observations that readers may find interesting:
- Different races boarding each other ships. For example, an Umgah on a VUX Intruder.
- There is an image of an Ilwrath throwing a dead Spathi into a furnace with an Umgah shouting "WAIT!" Could it be a Druuge Mauler furnace?
- There is an image of a human talking to a Spathi wearing a red cap. The comic involves humans other than The Captain? Maybe an encounter with the The Safe Ones (Spathi High Council)?
- What is the green Ur-Quan holding in the first picture? Could it be an excruciator, a device that would cause the Dnyarri great pain to prevent them from controlling their minds?
- When the Ilwrath says "Is this passing strange", what is he talking about? What happened to the Umgah's face? Who went through the door on the right?
I love seeing Star Control art and I can’t wait to see the comic in its complete form. In addition to drawing, Eth also has experience in animation. He has a Star Control website titled “Famous Battles of the Ur-Quan Conflict”. It contains screenshots from other ports of the first Star Control with a plot written by Eth from the perspective of an Earth historian named Eth Erasmus Blackthorne.
I can’t wait to see more. Thanks Eth for taking the time to share your comic with the world.
