STARDUST: The Super Wizard!

From the surreal mind of Fletcher Hanks comes Stardust!
Stardust had the amazing power of being able to do just about anything that was required, depending on the needs of the story.
Fletcher Hanks marched to his own drum, and may be an acquired taste, but I think he's awesome.
Stardust appeared in FANTASTIC COMICS #1-16 (Dec 1939-Mar 1941) and BIG 3 #2 (Winter 1941).

FANTASTIC COMICS #12 (November 1940)
story and art by Fletcher Hanks


I'm sure it's very restful.
Of course, she's more than eager...


  1. Whoa! He's a BIG fella, isn't he? ;-)

  2. This stories and 21 more twisted tales will appear in the second volume of The Collected Fletcher Hanks: "You Shall Die By Your Own Evil Creation" (Spring, 2009, Fantagraphics.

    Volume 1, "I Shall Destroy All The Civilized Planets" is still available. The 4th edition should by rolling into Amazon any day now.

    For a slide show of another Hanks tale and super-cool t-shirts go to:

  3. I'm happy to hear about that fourth printing!! I'm a very-latecomer to the awesomeness that is Fletcher Hanks, so by the time I was looking for "Civilized Planets" it was gone. I'll be keeping my eye on Amazon for that!!

    Excited about "You Shall Die By Your Own Evil Creation," as well!!

    Thanks for stopping by!!

  4. I would pay a lot of money to see a Hollywood blockbuster Stardust movie. I can't think of any more awesome concept.

  5. Aw, no! I thought Stardust's main squeeze was Fantomah (she of the skull floating behind her head fame)
    When she comes home she's gonna be pissed
