The Last Starfighter

 LASN   (Marvel, 1984)

™ and ©1984 Universal/Lorimar Joint Venture

This three-issue mini-series is the official comics adaptation of the film by the same name.

Alex Rogan wants nothing more than to escape his trailer park existence. At first, he hopes that college will provide the means, but he can’t get the loans he needs. His only break from harsh reality is the Starfighter video game.

When Alex sets a new record on the game, he suddenly finds himself swept off into a spaceship, where he discovers that the video game actually was a means of choosing the last starfighter; a pilot who will defend the Star League’s space frontier against Xur and the Ko-Dan Armada.

Now Alex finds himself in a space-fighter squadron made up of aliens like the aggressive Bodati. How can a mere human boy be the last starfighter? Alex will have to be up to the task, if the Star League is to survive.
