San Diego, CA (April 27, 2013) – IDW Publishing is proud to announce that for the first time, Christian Gossett’s acclaimed series THE RED STAR will be collected into a deluxe hardcover format!

THE RED STAR began with The Battle of Kar Dathras Gate in 1999. A fiercely unique fusion of imaginative technology, a deep, fully-realized universe, and a Soviet-influenced aesthetic, the series was a massive success, leading to three more volumes and incarnations as video and role-playing games.
