Black Star is a debut graphic novel by Eric Anthony Glover, based on his original unproduced screenplay, and illustrated by Arielle Jovellanos. In the future, interstellar travel is past its prime and sending shuttles beyond our solar system—even for vital scientific research—is a life-threatening gamble. However, in order to retrieve samples of an alien flower that may hold the key to saving countless lives, Harper North and her crew of scientists must journey to Eleos, a dangerous planet in deep space.But as they approach Eleos, their ship is caught in an asteroid storm and as it hurtles towards the surface, its reserve shuttle detaches, landing over 100 kilometers away. When the rest of the crew perishes in the burning wreckage of the ship, North races towards the rescue shuttle built for one, hoping to fulfill their mission and survive.But North isn’t alone: The team’s wilderness expert is still alive and hell-bent on hunting North down and claiming the shuttle for herself. Now, North has no choice but to reach the shuttle first—and fast. The fuel is leaking. Her GPS battery is dying. And the planet’s deadly seasonal change is coming. As she battles the flora and fauna and tries to elude her ruthless former crew mate, North will find the cost of survival is dear . . . Will she be willing to pay that price?

About the Author

Eric Anthony Glover studied screenwriting at Sarah Lawrence College and feature and television writing as a 2016 Final Draft Big Break Fellow in Burbank, California. He currently works as a screenwriter for Meow Wolf, an arts and entertainment company based in Santa Fe. Glover is committed to writing about underrepresented groups in his scripts and sincerely hopes to make the world a better place with this work. Arielle Jovellanos is a New York-based freelance illustrator, writer, and comics artist. Her work has been featured in the Eisner and Harvey-nominated anthology Fresh Romance and in magazines, comics, books, and branded social media campaigns. Recently, Jovellanos drew a series of variant covers for the mini-series Giles, a Buffy the Vampire Slayer spinoff by Joss Whedon and Erika Alexander; was a featured cover artist for the Adventure Time comic series; and finished a nine-month art residency with Redbubble in San Francisco.

"Jovellanos injects energy with fluid action, expressive character design, and a radiant color palette with blazing red wildfires and icy blue shuttle scenes... this offers a nifty take on interpersonal conflicts in interspace, bolstered by snazzy art."
