The Pan-Galactic Postal Service doesn't just deliver the mail. A crypto-military organization
with a monopoly on interstellar commerce, the PGPS safeguards the Community of
Worlds, bringing mayhem to all who threaten Galactic stability. In a civilization that
breeds Citizens who cannot kill, the dirty work of frontier
defense is left to non-Citizens, recruited from isolated non-member planets.
Gordon is one of these -- the PGPS Fighter Corps is the only ticket off of his
homeworld, a backwards farm planet called "Earth."
Interstellar war looms. Ruthless insurgents from the edge
of the galaxy foment rebellion on the frontier.
But these events are quickly overshadowed by a new crisis: something is making stars disappear,
and it's headed for Archive, the clerical heart of the PGPS.
Gordon and his friends, a neurotic navigator who may have written and then lost
the finest epic poem in history and a beautiful woman who is counted among the
seven greatest geniuses in the galaxy, speed together toward Archive aboard the
PGPS Galahad. At their destination awaits the supreme test -- of Gordon, of his
friends, and of all humankind.
The first issue of "Gordon and the Stareater" should weigh in at 24 pages when completed.
Note: the pages shown here change frequently. This is a work in progress, which means anything
that's ugly will be made beautiful, and anything that's dumb will soon be dauntingly erudite-seeming. All final-pencil drawings are done with a number two pencil
on bristol board and scanned at Kinko's.
Color is added in Photoshop.
