About Galaxion (FAQ)
What is this comic about?
Galaxion is a science fiction adventure and romance, one that feels something like a mix between Star Trek, classic Star Blazers anime, and a Lois McMaster Bujold (Hugo-winning author of the Miles Vorkosigan saga) novel. Unlike most graphic novel science fiction, Galaxion is not dark and gritty, but bright and clean and a little whimsical, and populated by characters you actually wouldn’t mind meeting over dinner and getting to know personally. You can find out about the story so far on the Synopsis page.
Haven’t I seen this somewhere before?
Yes, you probably have! Galaxion was published first as a series of minicomics (under the name Salmagundi) from 1993 to 1996, and then as a bimonthly comic book from 1997-1999. There was one graphic novel, which collected the first six issues. The covers to all the Galaxion material are available for viewing on our Bibliography page.
Is the Webcomic the same as the original printed comic?
The webcomic version of Galaxion debuted in September 2006, and we have posted a new page every Tuesday ever since. The webcomic is a considerably rewritten and entirely redrawn version of the print comic. The basic plot is the same, but with new scenes and new viewpoints, so even a returning reader will find plenty of material to enjoy.
Will the webcomic version ever see print?
Why yes, I’m so glad you asked! Please check out our store page for more information on how to get your very own copy.
