‘Dreadstar’ To Be Adapted For Television

Have you ever heard of Dreadstar? I haven’t. But apparently someone at Universal has, as The Wrap is reporting that Universal Cable Productions and a production company with the amazing name Benderspink are teaming up to bring this comic property to television.

Vanth Dreadstar was created by Jim Starlin back in 1982 for Marvel’s Epic imprint, and he’s pretty much a pulpy, space opera hero as far as I can tell. Honestly, while I don’t know much about the character, it seems like the show I’d like… so I guess I’m excited?

My interest is at least marginally piqued.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
