NEW! SHOP Starman



In 1970, Freddie Burretti left his hometown of Bletchley and moved to London. Fate led him to become a close friend of David Bowie. Together they created the Starman persona that propelled Bowie into rock super-stardom. In Starman, Freddie Burretti; The ManWho Sewed The World, cartoonist Paul B. Rainey adapts Lee Scriven’s musical of the same name which mythologises those events. Rainey sets out to capture the positive and energetic spirit of the original production using the silent artform of comics.

The comic-book is 40 pages, full-colour cover, two-colour interiors for £7.50.

Only available from www.pbrainey.bigcartel.com to order now.

“Suffice to say, it’s hugely enjoyable and set me off looking deeper into the life of Burretti, a fascinating story of triumph and tragedy that Rainey summarises beautifully, capturing all the aspects of a complicated life. Another one for the Best of British lists and definitely one you should be picking up." Richard Bruton, Comicon.
