    The news that Stardust will be returning to the moon to mark her birthday in a new story to be featured in an upcoming Fem Force issue has motivated me to say a few words about the original story
    In that story, Dusty travels to the moon to conduct her birth ritual( apparently a rather cold and sombre affair) in complete solitude.As she seeks to compose herself she recalls the events that brought her to this place and time(her origin story )Finally she is unable to suppress the joy she has kept bottled up inside her(Rurian culture dictates that all emotions always be kept in check and suppressed.) -and lets out a “primal scream “of joy.She realizes that she wants to spend her birthday with friends in the F.F. in as loud and emotional manner as is possible.And she understands now that earth is her home.
    To my mind this a very noteworthy story for a couple of reasons.First the story is silent .The “dialogue” consists entirely of Dusty’s thoughts as she remembers her past,considers her present and makes the conclusion about her future. This “inner voice “format works really well for this story and is very effective in working with the art to portray the perceptive and thoughtful mood of the story.
    Secondly (and I really like this aspect) the story quietly that the point that though newcomers/immigrants must often leave a lot behind when they come to a new country(and Dr. Mara could certainly qualify in that regard) they also get the opportunity to gain a lot as well. Not just physically or financially but also emotionally and spiritually as well .And that is the kind of gain that Stardust realizes she has achieved in this story.In her new life on earth among her friends in the F.F. she lives with a happiness she could have never experienced on RUR.
    You don’t often see this sort of story in other comics , so I am glad to see it here.
