DECONSTRUCTED – Influences

The Red Star first hit comic store shelves in 1999 and proceeded to come out in fits and starts. It changed publisher a handful of times, and sustaining interest was difficult – a pity as the central concept was so damn satisfying. Somewhere, in a longbox, I have a run of these comics – I was an avid fan.

The Red Star mixes overwhelming Soviet-style military might with psychic Sorceresses. The heady combination of monolithic scale technology, lab designed magic and Russian tragedy is a potent one.

It was this comic that really piqued my interest in the Russian military and Soviet era government – subjects I’ve barely scratched the surface of during my research. Perhaps for this reason I made the Los Perdidos Combine in DECONSTRUCTED a Russian colony in space, instead of an American one (cliché) or an English/ Japanese co-op, which was done in Aliens, as Weyland–Yutani, although you’d never know it.
