Comic Review: Space: 1999 – Aftershock and Awe

Space: 1999 – Aftershock and Awe
Written by Andrew E.C. Gaska
Art by Gray Morrow, Miki, & David Hueso
Cover by Gray Morrow
Archaia Entertainment
Release Date: December 17, 2012
Cover Price: $24.95

If you’re looking to take a leisurely breeze through Space: 1999 – Shock and Awe, you’d better think again. Clocking in at 168 pages, this is one of the most involved comics that I’ve ever read. And by involved I mean by both creators AND readers.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen quite as much love poured into a project as I have this one. It’s clear that Archaia and especially author Andrew E.C. Gaska wanted this graphic novel to be something beyond fantastic and their work clearly shows and that’s what they deliver. In spades. I honestly can’t believe what went into this book – and I’m only speculating.

The first part is a fantastic adaptation of the first episode of the series by Gaska taken from old Charlton Comics! From there, it just gets better. Gaska delves into the back story of the series and even shows us what happens to Earth after the nuclear disaster of September 13, 1999.

1970s Sci-Fi Series ‘Space: 1999’ Being Revived For Television As ‘Space: 2099’

These days it seems like every beloved science-fiction franchise from the past five decades is getting a modernization with varying degrees of success. We’ve had four Star Trek spin-offs, Syfy’s much-loved Battlestar Galactica update, and ABC’s recent V revival, and there’s the eagerly anticipated Star Wars: Underworld series heading to the airwaves soon.

Now comes the news that the mid-1970s British-made television series Space: 1999 is getting a 21st century revival and will be titled Space: 2099. The new series will be a joint venture of ITV Studios America and HDFilms.

10 Ways To Make a Kick Ass Version of ‘Space: 1999’
  |  @   |  

By Broadcasting Brain

Space: 1999, the first major science fiction television series to follow Star Trek, deserves a second chance at life. Space: 1999, which ran from 1975-77, chronicles the adventures of an international crew of scientists and specialists on Earth’s Moon. Although it was cancelled after two seasons, fans still fondly remember the series. In light of other pop culture recycling that permeates today’s creative content, why not see what can be reused from this series?

As Space: 1999 begins, Commander John Koenig arrives at Moonbase Alpha, charged with ensuring the successful launch of a manned deep space probe after a series of mysterious crew deaths. His old colleague Professor Victor Bergman is there as chief scientist and advisor, while Chief Medical Officer Dr. Helena Russell tries to determine the cause of the deaths. The cause is determined to be radiation poisoning from unstable nuclear waste disposal sites, which explode, blasting the Moon out of Earth’s orbit, on an unknown trajectory at unknown speed, towards open space.

The series is a story of survival, adventure, and hope as the crew of Moonbase Alpha, the only manned settlement not on the Earth, searches for a new home in space. They encounter aliens, other humanoid civilizations, space phenomena, fearsome machines, and have several failed encounters with planets which could have provided homes for the lost Earthlings. You might see some parallels with later series like Battlestar Galactica (both versions) and Star Trek: Voyager.
