What are the WILD STARS?

The Wild Stars debuted as a series of comic books created, written, rendered,
sometimes illustrated, and once even printed
by Michael Tierney,
first published in 1984.

What is the concept of the WILD STARS?

Seventy-Five-Thousand Years ago, mankind first migrated into
space and colonized the planets circling the brightest stars in the night sky,
creating the region of space known as the Wild Stars.

Space Gods complete wild stars ad ws5page1

The Wild Stars are where stories of UFOs and legends of Space Gods come from.
The decendants of those deep space explorers have returned many times over the ages.
Now... their war with a genocidal enemy has followed them back to Earth...

The complete comic book novel took 20 years to tell, and in 2004 all three Volumes of the comic book series and the Wild Stars portfolio from 1985 were combined into the trade paperback:

In Spring 2009, the

Wild Stars: The Book of Circles -- Recalibrated

hardcover was released.
The 25th Anniversary edition combined the 2004 graphic novel with new material, previously unpublished Wild Stars comic pages, plus several other new features.

The 30th Anniversary brought a triple-play of new books in 2014:

The new sequel to the graphic novel is a novel with graphics.

Wild Stars II: Force Majeure

An 83,000 novel wrapped around 38 pages of comics pencilled by Armando Gil, along with 50 'flashback' illustrations by Dave Simons.

A child of the Wild Stars has been kidnapped and lost in time.
What would you do if, after searching a Billion Years in a single day,
you discovered that the survival of Earth depends upon abandoning your daughter to sadistic enemies?


The black and white contents of Wild Stars: The Book of Circles -- Recalibrated were released for the first time in a trade paperback, in a uniform edition that matches with the new Wild Stars 2: Force Majeure.

For the first time in a collected edition, the 30th Anniversary Edition hardcover of Wild Stars: The Book of Circles - Recalibrated restores the color from the outer and interior covers of the original comic books.

The runup to 35th Anniversary brought a triple-play for the magazine release of Wild Stars 3: TimeWarmageddon:

Released Summer 2018 in a Cirsova Special magazine edition, the debut of Wild Stars 3: Time Warmageddon boasted three covers!
The main edition featured a front cover by Tim Lim and a back cover by Mark Wheatly.
Mark Wheatley provided a wraparound cover for the variant edition.
There was also a third version in hardcover, which featured a Mark Wheatly wraparound dust wrapper --
in virgin format without text!

Wild Stars 35th Anniversary Omnibus hardcover from Cirsova!

Wild Stars Omnibus

The Wild Stars 35th Anniversary Omnibus hardcover is available for order on Lulu.
This 726-page, 8 1/2" x 11" hardcover features an incredible wraparound cover by Anton Oxenuk,
and contains everything from the first 35 years in the history of the Wild Stars!

The Wild Stars universe continued to grow in 2021, when
Wild Stars 5: The Artomique Paradigm was serialed in three parts in the
Spring, Summer, and Fall issues of Cirsova magazine--which had previously
published author Michael Tierney's posthumous collaboration with Edgar Rice Burroughs
on Young Tarzan and the Mysterious She.

Young Tarzan and the Mysterious She

The Spring issue featuring Part One of Wild Stars 5: The Artomique Paradigm had six different editions:
The main cover by Anton Oxnuk is available in both paperback and hardcover.
The Genzoman variant cover is availabe in paperback with the traditional trade text,
and as a virgin cover in hardcover.
Publisher Alex Alexander's Chen cover is available in both paperback and hardcover.

So to recap, here are the paperback covers (Note: The Chen cover is NOT Artomique Paradigm related),
click on any paperback cover to be taken directly to Amazon:

Here are the hardcover editons:

Here is the cover for Cirsova v2 #7, with Part Two of Wild Stars 5: The Artomique Paradigm:

But the story of the Wild Stars actually began long before even the celebrated anniversary date of 1984
.
