September 13th: 1999 – An atomic accident causes the moon to be blown out of orbit and hurled into the unknown, the survivors of the lunar base stationed there launched towards their destiny across the stars. But what of the cataclysm and wanton destruction caused to the Earth in its wake? In an alternate universe where JFK was never assassinated, mankind has already suffered through World War III, unified into a single world government, and built a base on the moon by the year 1999!
September 13th: 1999 – An atomic accident causes the moon to be blown out of orbit and hurled into the unknown, the survivors of the lunar base stationed there launched towards their destiny across the stars. But what of the cataclysm and wanton destruction caused to the Earth in its wake?
The story begins in Awe, which adapts the pilot episode of SPACE: 1999 “Breakaway,” as seen through the personal logs of Commander John Koenig and Professor Victor Bergman on Moonbase Alpha — expanded to include both new and unfilmed material, and utilizing the remastered art of comics legend Gray Morrow as a basis for this revolutionary retelling of a sci-fi classic.
This groundbreaking retro-reintroduction to the sci-fi hit series from the early 1970s continues with Aftershock which follows nine lives who are forever changed by the carnage left in the moon’s wake. Told from the point of view of those left behind on a ravaged Earth, Aftershock explores the scientific, environmental, and social political repercussions of a world left with no moon.
Based on the classic science fiction television series SPACE: 1999 – and set in the continuity of the original series, Aftershock and Awe steals a glimpse at an alternate history of mankind, and jump-starts humanity’s eventual destiny far out in space.
The sci-fi classic series continues! September 13, 1999 – An atomic accident causes the moon to be blown out of orbit and hurled into the unknown, the survivors of the lunar base stationed there launched towards their destiny, and adventures, across the stars.
Set in the continuity of the original series, Classic Space: 1999 – To Everything That Was fills in the gap between the first and second seasons of the gothic science fiction television series “Space: 1999,” offering an exciting narrative of events that occurred “behind the scenes.”
This collection is a celebration of the Space: 1999 comics of yesteryear, reprinting the best of the Charlton Comics series, the British Look-In issues and Annuals, with an artistic storytelling twist! The stories within have been carefully selected to represent both the international and domestic scope of the classic SpaceL 1999 comics from the 1970s, and not only look back in retro nostalgia, but also forward to the future of this dynamic space epic. Within these pages are not simply reprints, but remastered works, most in color for the first time. With respect to the intent and spirit of the original body of work, the comics presented in Classic Space: 1999 have been enhanced and clarified within both the story and art, in order to bring these Alphan adventures more in line with both the established continuity of the original “Space: 1999″ original televised series and the new graphic novel series. It is by no means intended to supplant the original versions of these works, but instead to exist alongside them.
A labor of love, Classic Space: 1999 – To Everything That Was utilizes over a dozen rare “Space: 1999″ painted artworks as chapter breaks, and is adorned by a previously unpublished Gray Morrow “Space: 1999″ cover painting. Originally intended for the next issue of the 1977 cancelled Charlton comic series run, this beautifully restored image had until now only seen print in the late ’70s as a puzzle!
This collection is dedicated to the original writers, artists, editors, and letterers who worked to bring Space: 1999 to the comics page. For many of us, the original versions of their work was our first window into comic book adventures.
