Stardust (1997) #1
An illustrated "fairy story for adults" by Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single falling star. Telling the tale of a young man with magically mixed parentage and the quest he undertakes at a lover's bidding, Stardust begins with the story of his origin: A liaison between a young mortal and a fairy girl in the 1720s, when humans mingled freely each decade with the world of Faerie at a village festival.
Written by Neil Gaiman. Painted art and cover by Charles Vess.
