Moonie in Too Many Moons
Using a robot MOONIE, the Captain and crew steal the priceless “Eyes of Hub” from a satellite vault and return the jewels to its owners causing the original thieves to pursue them. A human MOONIE tries to help by hiring the Captain to command the starship Thalia, which crashes on the asteroid Eros II. This marks the birth of MOONIE the Starbabe and all the Starbabes.
Moonie in the Slave Market of Opuul
MOONIE, the busty Starbabe who can live anywhere without life support, is taken captive by pirates and sold to a slave market. When Rangers attack, Moonie and her new friends, shoot their way to freedom. But freedom can hold a greater danger than slavery, especially when her first mission, as a Ranger, is to take revenge on the slave city from where she had just escaped. With illustrations.
Moonie and the Spider Queen
A pair of outer space grifters are in pursuit of a Starbabe, Moonie, who can live in space wearing little more than a smile, an ability worth billions. Their chase takes them to a world of giant thinking spiders, tanks of voluptuous naked maidens and the insidious spider queen, Phobia. With illustrations.
