  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A graphic novel loosely based on the Atari game Star Raiders, published in 1983 by DC Comics. Written by Elliot S! Maggin and painted by Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, it was the first title in the DC Graphic Novel series. The story follows Jedediah Poole and Tomorrow "Tommy" Hardtack, two human adventurers who find a desolate planet with the Star Raider, a small, nimble, and very powerful spaceship. Aided by Zeke Vicker, the planet's only survivor, Poole and Hardtack decide to start a rebellion against the tyrannical Zylons who have conquered the galaxy.

According to Comic Book Resources, the story was originally intended as a 120-page-long limited series. Unfortunately, due to The Great Video Game Crash of 1983, Atari canceled the deal with DC Comics midway through development. With 40 pages already completed, DC decided to cut its losses by commissioning an additional 20 pages to finish the story, then released it as a single volume.

Tropes used in Star Raiders (comics) include:
