The SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch was the moment space enthusiasts like Eli had been waiting for since the landing on the Moon. “We all were brought up with the ideal that when we grew up we were going to live in a Futurama world — flying cars, space travel and humans becoming a multi-planetary species. Instead all we got were 140-characters, and a chance to buy upgraded smartphones, until Elon Musk came along,” says Eli.

“When I saw Starman orbiting around the Earth in Elon’s Tesla Roadster, I knew I had to do something to help push his vision forward,” says Eli, explaining his motivation behind The Adventures of Starman.

“My vision for Starman is for him to become more than a moment, but a movement. I see it as a movement where people like me who are inspired by the current space revolution strive to do their best for human advancement toward space,” Eli explains.

He continues, “I took an artistic approach because art has the capacity to inspire people, especially children like my daughter, to study hard and strive for STEM careers — this is a must if we are going to conquer the final frontier in our lifetime. I also hope that the Adventures of Starman will help drive public support for space exploration. Starman is the hero we need to keep dreaming of a better future.”

The Adventures of Starman is both art and history wrapped into a beautiful collector’s edition comic book. To bring Starman to lifeEli partnered with comic artist Dash Martin and hired artists from both Marvel and DC.

The first episode of the Starman movement is dedicated to the people of SpaceX who made the Falcon Heavy launch possible, and Elon Musk for his ceaseless efforts to lead humanity forward.
