Though we have a general consensus that the Star-lord Special Edition by Claremont and Byrne is one of the awesomest Bronze Age comics, Star-lord fans know a few gems awaiting those who dig deeper. Consider this origin story by the prolific Doug Moench. And dig that opening splash panel by Tom Sutton!
Do you absolutely desire your own copy printed on tree corpses? You can buy Star-lord’s origin in Marvel Spotlight #6; Marvel Comics, 1980. Oh, the scent of vintage paper!
