Now that Starburns Press has begun their much-anticipated launch, one of the first titles the new publisher announced is almost here for all to enjoy. Spawned from a conversation between acclaimed comic book writer Eric Esquivel and television mega-creator Dan Harmon, Gregory Graves takes a decades-old rivalry and turns it on its head. Originally pitched as a Lex Luthor/Superman story for DC Comics, Graves focuses on the titular character and his adversary, Luminary. Luminary, a nearly perfect specimen who hails from another planet, has been on Earth for some time, saving the world and being the perfect savior. Everyone from around the globe has taken to the handsome hero, with the exception of Graves, who sees Luminary as he truly is: a cosmic being who has taken this planet as its new home, but who doesn't truly serve the people, only their own egos.

No book exists without all of the creators behind it, but there’s something about how all of the different elements in this book are working together, how the creators are conversing through their artforms, building off the last things said that is creating a truly visceral, unsettling experience. They are managing this with very little gore, very little violence, but more about what’s suggested – the abstract.
Boone Dias and his team - a fairy, a talking gorilla creature, and a sort of Minotaur mage - set out to destroy the Copper Golems that are creating breaches between the Ether and the reality Earth lives in. It’s an exciting issue that’s visually arresting. Boone Dias is a scientist that has found a way into the Ether, an alternate reality that brings to life all our creativity, and Dias has been working as a sort of adventuring detective. Solving mysteries using science to show that, even behind the most magical of notions, there’s truly no such thing as magic. We’ve found that time moves slower in the Ether, and Dias can’t eat food there which drives him back and forth between each realm.
Earth was destroyed. In an instant, billions of people died. That was seven years ago. Now, the denizens of Arcadia on Mars want action. They want the people who did this - the people who killed their families and friends. The citizens of Arcadia aren’t the only ones who want answers.
