Michael Kaluta is one of the most revered and versatile artists in comics and illustration. He is frequently recognized as the definitive artist of The Shadow, has been praised for his Lord of the Rings paintings, and illustrated the Metropolis novel. He was also part of the legendary artists' collective (along with Jeff Jones, Barry Windsor-Smith and Bernie Wrightson) known simply as THE STUDIO.
But if any project is closest to the artist's heart it would be Starstruck, an ongoing space-fantasy that began in the pages of Heavy Metal Magazine in 1982, was a Marvel Comics Graphic Novel in 1984, and several series of comics from various publishers in the 1980s and 90s. Starstruck is still a work in progress and IDW Publishing will release a new series this year, with expanded stories by Lee and Kaluta.
Fans should also check some of these pages for their wonderful Moebius style inspiration. A great fun series of stories with compelling art.
