Free Comic Book Day 2018
Still want the origin issue of Star Beasts? We dropped off more copies of the original sneak peek teaser of Star Beasts at Elite for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY. They’ll go quick, so make sure to stop by Elite and pick one up on free comic book day, Saturday, May 5th.
What is Free Comic Book Day?
Some Crewcreatures might be new to comics and not realize that once (and sometimes TWICE) a year comic book stores give out free comics to their customers. Many comic book stores like Elite even have activities with special guests! You can meet comic book creators and dress up like your favorite characters. It’s basically like a store-sized comic con, but there’s also FREE COMICS. And you know how the Star Beasts love their free space stuff….
Where is Elite Comics?
Elite comics is located at 11842 Quivira Road in Overland Park, Kansas. Blast on over and pick up your copy of Star Beasts Issue #1 and enjoy FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!

Commander Flashtista is the Condor’s head of security, pilot, and Bandit’s best friend. It’s her job to maintain order and advise Captain Bandit on military issues when necessary. Being second in command, she often let’s her strong-willed-kick-in-the-pants attitude do the commanding for her.
Flashtista isn’t your average turtle. She has psychic abilities. When she was younger she used to predict the future, but she’s lost that skill due to an accident. Now she can only predict movement and levitate. Flashtista moves fastest when she’s floating and rarely ever walks. The crack in her shell is connected to her un-turtle like abilities.
The Condor’s pilot is a no-nonsense leader who tends to blast first and blast again later.
Lieutenant Jamyang is a tiger and trained medic. Despite her large size, she is a gentle soul. Her commanding officer, Flashtista, gets frustrated with Karma’s “humbled warrior” approach to life. Karma, on the other paw, is proud to be a “peaceful healer.” She enjoys spreading goodness across the galaxy.
Due to her strength, natural fighting abilities, and risk taking past, Karma is often called into battle, but she tries to live up to her name. Lieutenant Jamyang does everything she can to help rather than to harm.
When she’s not tending wounds and saving the universe, she enjoys meditating and texting with her family back on Earth.
Crewcreature Snuffs Lewis is practical from tail to snout. On the Condor, his job is to be a space farmer and feed his team. Every once in a while he grows experimental fruits and vegetables with more powers than just vitamins.
Snuffs is a the most useful, get-the-job-done creature on the Condor. Dr. Maria Curly appreciates the pig’s focused nature. They were both raised in the country and often spend time together.
Before coming to the Condor, Snuffs was a farmer on Earth. He decided to join the Creaturehood primarily for the paycheck. He has five hungry piglets back on the planet to feed. Crewcreature Lewis wears his gardening hat whether he’s in the dirt or not. His piglets gave it to him as a going away present.
Lieutenant Clio Fin is third in command and a dedicated scholar. Her mission is to observe and record Creaturehood history as it happens. She see’s history as a living thing. Clio uses her historical knowledge to help make current decisions for the Condor Crew. She truly believes that applying perspective and learnings from the past can help save the future.
Clio’s most useful tool and favorite possession is her Shell Library. Passed down from her father, Nabu, it contains the most crucial and least obvious moments the Creaturehood history. Lieutenant Fin loves all kinds of stories. During her rare time off, she tends to binge stories through movies, books, and TV shows.
Being a goldfish, Clio must stay in a watery environment. A water bubble constantly surrounds her so she can breath.
The Condor Crew will be at Library Con 2017! If you’re in Springfield MO swing by the Greene County Library Center for the super stellar Library Con on August, 19th.
Not only can you meet all kinds of writers and artists, you (yes, you!!) can check out out new Star Beasts swag and FREE SPACE STUFF!

Vintage Phoenix love animals. They even help animals find their homes, no matter what they’re made of! Recently, they’ve tried to reconnect a lost stuffed lamb found in the street with her human friend.
