"THE STRANGERS was one of Malibu's three premiere titles and its biggest seller right out of the gate. The Jumpstart, which created the team and over 50 other Ultras, was the linchpin of the Ultraverse launch.
That inexplicable blast from the moon changed a Latina business tycoon - two All-American art students - a baker - a kid from the hood - a pleasure droid - and an ethereal princess from a long-hidden civilization in the clouds. Five of them were normal people, all were strangers to each other, and now strange to themselves. Starting at ground zero in San Francisco, they set out to chart the changes in their brand new Ultraverse. (It was such a powerful idea that J. Michael Straczynski later borrowed it for Rising Stars.)

The wonderful thing about the Ultraverse was that it was a collaborative effort. Mike Barr, Steve Gerber, James Hudnall, Gerard Jones, James Robinson, Len Strazewski, and I (plus Larry Niven for a time) all agreed from the outset to share the playground and join in each other's games. Thus it was that STRANGERS #4 was planned as a crossover with HARDCASE #4 from the beginning, and STRANGERS #7 crossed over with PROTOTYPE as part of BREAKTHRU. But that was what made Malibu unique to the public and a family for us Founding Fathers."
