Description

Basada en el guion de un episodio piloto para una serie que no se rodó, e ilustrada y adaptada por una reconocida artista, esta novela gráfica trae de vuelta la intriga, el ingenio y la atmósfera que hacen de George R. R. Martin un fenómeno mundial.

Hace una década, representantes de un colectivo interestelar formado por 314 especies alienígenas aterrizaron en la Tierra y nos invitaron a formar parte de él convirtiéndonos en la especie 315.

Ahora, por fin, después de sufrir todo tipo de retrasos, el Puerto Estelar de Chicago está listo y recibe visitantes de toda la galaxia: diplomáticos, comerciantes y turistas por igual. Dentro, los visitantes se rigen por un tratado intergaláctico. Fuera, las calles son solo de unos pocos. En ellas, la policía de Chicago trata de no sucumbir al entusiasmo del nuevo mundo y de evitar que algunos de sus agentes cabreen al universo entero…

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Law & Order 
meets Men in Black in this graphic novel adaptation of an unproduced TV pilot script by the author of A Game of Thrones—a never-before-seen story brought to life for the first time!


SECOND CITY. FIRST CONTACT.

Ten years ago, representatives from an interstellar collective of 314 alien species landed on Earth, inviting us to become number 315. Now, after seemingly endless delays, the Starport in Chicago is operational, a destination for diplomats, merchants, and tourists alike. Inside, visitors are governed by intergalactic treaty. Outside, the streets belong to Chicago’s finest.
 
Charlie Baker, newly promoted to the squad that oversees the Starport district, is eager to put to practical use his enthusiasm for all things extraterrestrial; he just never expected to arrive on his first day in the back of a police cruiser. Lieutenant Bobbi Kelleher is married to the job, which often puts her in conflict with Lyhanne Nhar-Lys, security champion of Starport and one of the galaxy’s fiercest warriors. Undercover with a gang of anti-alien extremists, Detective Aaron Stein has no problem mixing business with pleasure—until he stumbles upon evidence of a plot to assassinate a controversial trade envoy with a cache of stolen ray guns. Now the Chicago PD must stop these nutjobs before they piss off the entire universe.

Based on a TV pilot script written by George R. R. Martin in 1994 and adapted and illustrated by Hugo Award–nominated artist Raya Golden, this bold and brilliant graphic novel adaptation at last brings Martin’s singular vision to rollicking life. With all the intrigue, ingenuity, and atmosphere that made A Game of Thrones a worldwide phenomenon, Starport launches a new chapter in the career of a sci-fi/fantasy superstar.
