Read the short description below and watch for more news on STARPORT!
SECOND CITY. FIRST CONTACT.
Ten years ago, representatives from an interstellar collective of 314 alien
species landed on Earth, inviting us to become number 315. Now, after seemingly
endless delays, the Starport in Chicago is operational, a destination for diplomats,
merchants, and tourists alike. Inside, visitors are governed by intergalactic treaty.
Outside, the streets belong to Chicago’s finest.
Charlie Baker, newly promoted to the district that oversees alien affairs, is
eager to put to practical use his enthusiasm for all things extraterrestrial; he just
never expected to arrive on his first day in the back of a police cruiser. Lieutenant
Bobbi Kelleher is married to the job, which often puts her in conflict with Lyhanne
Nhar-Lys, security champion of Starport and one of the galaxy’s fiercest warriors.
Undercover with a gang of anti-alien extremists, Detective Aaron Stein has no
problem mixing business with pleasure–until he stumbles upon evidence of a plot
to assassinate a controversial trade envoy with a cache of stolen ray guns. Now
the Chicago PD must stop these nutjobs before they piss off the entire universe.
Based on a 1997 TV pilot script written by George R. R. Martin and adapted and
illustrated in full color by Hugo Award-nominated artist Raya Golden, this bold and
brilliant graphic novel adaptation brings Martin’s singular vision to rollicking life.
With all the intrigue, ingenuity, and atmosphere that made A Game of Thrones a
worldwide phenomenon, Starport launches a new chapter in the career of a sci-fi/fantasy superstar.
