            Reviewing the Best Gay Artists . . .

                                 Star Trick
                        Artist Dom Orejudos Is Etienne!

            Darth Vader has nothing on Dom’s “Captain Kirk.” In fact, Star Trick’s
            Captain Kirk has nothing on at all. At last, Star Trek’s best special effects
            hang revealed. No longer is the enterprising spacemeat basketed in those
            bouncy JC Penney pajamas.
               Strip a Trekie. Get a Trickie.
               Drummer gladly sneak previews Star Trick. This strip is the latest by
            starwalker Dom Orejudos who signs his murals and paintings as “Eti-
            enne” and “Stephen.” Dom aims to please. Drummer aims to tease. After
            all, no preview ought to expose the great lengths to which Dom’s drawings
            go. Suffice it to say that a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Captains
            Outrageous dived head first into the ultimate space probe.
               Star Trick is a marvel of a comic. For men who appreciate uncut
            cockamamy plots and tongue-in-cheeks humor, Star Trick is a collectible
            available in this galaxy from New York’s Target Studio.
               May the farce be with you.
