Overview

The sci-fi classic series continues! September 13th: 1999 — when 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 launch 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reprinting the best of the Charlton Comics series, the British Look-In issues and Annuals, with remastered and unpublished works by comic book legends such as Gray Morrow (Man-Thing, Tarzan, Buck Rogers), John Byrne(X-men, Fantastic Four), Joe Staton (Green Lantern, Superboy), and more. 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That Was utilizes over a dozen rare Space: 1999 painted artworks as chapter breaks, and is adorned by a previously unpublished Gray Morrow Space: 1999 cover painting, originally intended for the next issue of the 1977 cancelled Charlton comic series run and only seen print in the late '70s as a puzzle, now beautifully restored!

From the creative team who brought us the AMAZING "Aftershock and Awe" comes the newest addition to the "Space: 1999" universe. First off, let me say that this is a HEAVY book. Not philosophically (although there is a bit of that as well), but a very substantial book that's crammed cover-to-cover with excellent artwork and stories! "Space 1999: To Everything That Was" fills in the time between Year One and Year Two of the 1970's sci-fi epic (and carries a bit beyond Year Two), and does so by using a combination of a remastered version of the Charlton B&W comics and new, original artwork and stories to weave a narrative tapestry that manages to be deeper that the original show. On one hand, the stories are action/adventure at it's finest, but on the other, we get insight into the characters' thoughts and feelings by the use of personal logs. This adds a depth to the stories that aren't present in the televised series. For fans of the series, this will be a refreshing treat, and for those who aren't familiar with the show, it will be a GREAT introduction! Congratulations to Drew Gaska and his team!
