Containing Metamorphosis Odyssey, The Price and Dreadstar: the Graphic Novel – all fully painted by Starlin – are presented here in one definitive collection – fully re-mastered and ready to command a new legion of fans!

The third part of the Metamorphosis Odyssey was the Marvel graphic novel Dreadstar originally published in 1982 and featured the return of Vanth Dreadstar! Now, all three parts are combined into one volume.
