Where did it begin?
Reversed Star is a sci-fi webcomic that follows the concurrent stories of Icaruss, a studious and proud human/alien hybrid, and Evangeline, a spoiled and generous human heiress. Despite living on opposite sides of the galaxy, the two share an unexplained psychic link, with Icaruss seeing through Evangeline’s eyes in dreams when she’s in danger. And when Evangeline is kidnapped and held captive, Icaruss takes it upon himself to cross the galaxy to rescue her with a few companions and the help of his twin sister, Thara.

Reversed Star started posting on October 17, 2017. It is currently being hosted on tumblr and posts a new page every Tuesday at 2 PM EST. Additional information and sketches are also released on the creators' blog.

Reversed Star contains examples of:

  • Aliens Speaking English: Although many have languages of their own, most of them know English for the sake of the plot.
  • Benevolent Alien Invasion: Aliens and humans get along quite well, at least where Icaruss is from.
  • Gaia's Lament: Icaruss’s planet seems to have this problem, with many of the residents having to wear gas masks outside.
  • Golem: The galas (robotic servants created by Evangeline's dad's company) seem to invoke this trope, at the very least.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: This seems to be very common where Icaruss is from. Icaruss, Thara, and Greta are all stated to be part human.
  • Humanoid Aliens: Many aliens look like this.
  • Interspecies Romance: Very common. Some examples include Greta and Lexia, and Icaruss and Thara's parents.
  • Otherworldly and Sexually Ambiguous: Seems to be the case for plenty of aliens, at least in the background.
  • Pronoun Trouble: In a short story, there’s an alien with four heads called a “stalk.” A single head uses the prounoun “it,” while the whole creature (which is implied to have a sort of shared consciousness) is referred to as “they.”
  • Shapeshifting: Some aliens are stated to shapeshift in a mock article written.
  • Spoiler Opening: Begins with a short shot of Evangeline and Icaruss fighting in a war, before jumping back to before the two met.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: The Shifters.
