'Wandering Star' written and drawn by Teri Sue Wood is a reprint of the series from the early 1990s. This includes all 21 issues.
It's the future, and Casandra is the daughter of the President of the United Nations. She is sent off to school at the Galactic Academy and realizes that Earth isn't the center of the universe after all. She also finds herself in the middle of a galactic conflict against a race called the Bono Kiro, who are bent on subjecting the entire universe to their rule. She has her odd group of friends and a ship called the Wandering Star, but can she really make a difference?
The story is told with a framing device with an older Casandra. The art is rough and black and white. The lettering is a bit stylized in places and can be a bit tough to read. In spite of the art and lettering, I really loved this story.
At 468 pages, it's an epic space opera, but the personal side is heartfelt and poignant. It's about the kind of friends you make when you are young, and the way you feel at the loss of them. I'm so glad that Dover reprinted this and that I got a chance to finally read the whole thing.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Dover Publications and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
