#8 - Imagine #1-6 by Various (Star*Reach Productions, 1978-1979)
Since I wasn't able to include Star*Reach due to it's 18-issue run, I decided to include it's spin-off series instead, Imagine. The original Star*Reach series featured a plethora of great material from several well-known collaborators, so much so that it could not all fit in one quarterly title. Thus this spin-off was born.
Many of those same collaborators returned for Imagine, featuring work from the likes of Neal Adams, Dave Sim, Gene Day, P. Craig Russell, Lee Marrs, Steve Ditko, Michael T. Gilbert and many more.
Many of the stories, like Star*Reach, are of a sci-fi flavor. The standout stories include "The Nimrod Fusion" (by Steven Grant and Richard Larson) about a mentally unfit soldier on a mission to destroy a race of mutant frogs that view him as their savior, "Avatar" (by P. Craig Russell) about a warrior's quest to rescue the Chimera, and "The Summoning" (by Steve Ditko and Paul Levitz) which was actually intended as a Doctor Strange story but the characters were altered.
Great series with plenty of hidden gems to be discovered.
