The Comic

The earliest origins of Hyperhelion lie in a comic strip written and drawn by Calvin Climie in his early teens. The characters of Deh'ma and Speen feature prominently even in this early version of the story, although Deh'ma's name is spelled "Dema." Bil, Qual and Tomlo, the other members of Deh'ma's group, unseen in the movie version, are also present. Speen's android henchman, Crat, appears on a viewscreen in a couple of panels.

In translating the early stories to film, some development of the characters has taken place - note the small size of the Chiropteran characters in comparison with Speen, as well as Speen's less-than-svelte appearance.
