If like me you're a big Space:1999 fan, don't hesitate to buy this book.

The crew at Blam take some comics from the past from the UK and U.S, add a lot of love and some re-mastering and bring the whole thing superbly to life with new linking material and re-dialogued scripts to tell an on-going tale of Moonbase Alpha.

Put together in an wonderfully designed package, it's essential reading for Space:1999 addicts. Let's hope there's more to come.

I have the majority of the old comics and read them as they came out. This version remasters and re edits stories into one long graphic novel. Simply wonderful stuff.

So glad to see this in print 17 Sept. 2013
By Talvi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The is a wonderful and lovingly remastered collection of the 1975-79 British comic series. At 300+ pages, there is a lot here to like. Especially for those of us who never had a chance to read the originals.

The comic series bridged the gap between season 1 and season 2 of the TV series. Unconstrained by real life limits, budget, time, sets, actors, etc., we have the opportunity to really expand on the characters, give them more robust aliens and worlds, but still keep the spirit of the series intact.

The restoration compiled the best of the series, remastered them, and included absolutely gorgeous full color art between the chapters. The chapters themselves are set up like the episodes - with an intro and then preview of the upcoming episode/chapter. I can almost hear the two seasons' themes when I was reading.

I can't even begin to describe how wonderful it was to be taken back to the time of being a 10 year old girl and watching Maya transform, Koenig bluster, Eagles blown up, and lots of drama. Although I have the DVD set, the comic fills in a lot of details about the characters and behind the scenes of the episodes that wouldn't make it onto TV.

Although I have a digital copy, I will be purchasing the physical version as well. I want that larger format.

Obviously, this is ideal for the Space 1999 or sci fi fan. But really, there's a lot here for the comic/graphic novel collector as well. Although very 'talky' and busy as was the style of the era, there's so much to digest and go over. This is a large volume with a lot of content that will provide enjoyment over quite a long period of time. A great value for the money.

A quality book, great content, and highly recommended.

Received as an ARC from the publisher.

Space 1999: To Everything That Was 20 Sept. 2013
By Thomas R. Skidmore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Continuing in the grand, epic tradition commenced by Aftershock and Awe, writer Drew Gaska now brings us re-mastered and enhanced stories of Space 1999, directly selected from comic archives from both the US and the UK. "Space 1999: To Everything That Was" once again featurres great artwork, including early work from "Fantastic Four" and "Superman" writer/artist John Byrne, as well as the return of legendary SF icon Gray Morrow. As always, artist Miki uses a rich palette of colors to enhance the black-and-white art of both Morrow and Spanish-born US artist Vicencte Alcazar. For fun, Gaska and his team also include the art of British artists John M. Burns and Mike Noble, never seen in the US before. The best piece of art is no doubt Morrow's intro to Book IV: Beyond the Second Cycle; the Year Two addition Maya has, to my eyes, never looked better, and Morrow outdid himself. The supplemental art by Gaska's team of David Hueso and Miki don't detract from the rest of the art; if anything, the orginal stories are improved, as is the scriptwriting, done by Gaska himself. While for those few these stories in "Space 1999: To Everything That Was" may seem like old-hat, its invested amount of reverence and respect for the source material cannot ever be understated. Overall, this is a great monetary investment, as well as a great introduction to the "Classic" Space 1999 that so many of us came to know in the 1970s. Kudos, Drew Gaska, and may your own journey be filled with wonder and delight.

Remastered mediocrity 22 Sept. 2013
By Alt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
One thing that can be said about Charlton's version of Space 1999 is that it's true to the original television series. That can be good or bad, depending on how you feel about the series. The show was far from cutting edge when it first aired, and neither were the graphic adaptations that are republished here. Sometimes, as here, "classic" is synonymous with "old and tired." There are some science fiction television shows I can watch over and over. Space 1999 isn't one of them.

The first story features an "alien takes over human body" plot, a standby of unimaginative sf writers. While some of the subsequent stories are better, they're all predictable. This isn't an awful adaptation, but I question the value of regurgitating a television series that wasn't all that good to begin with. Since the stories take place between the first and second seasons of the television series, Charlton's writers were handicapped by the inability to take the stories or the characters in a different direction. They couldn't be bold or daring, and that makes these stories unexciting. True fans of the television series will probably have a more favorable reaction than mine, but I don't see the point of remastering mediocrity. My three star rating reflects my indifference: not bad enough to dislike, not good enough to read twice.

The pages seem cramped -- these are excessively wordy stories -- leaving too little room for the art. Characters from the original series are all recognizable here, which is a plus. Some of the art is pleasing, including the early work of John Byrne. I particularly like the covers, but the art isn't strong enough to overcome the cluttered pages.

Excellent addition to the Space:1999 Universe! 22 Sept. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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!

Byrne's work from Space: 1999 is badly distorted... 3 April 2015
By Starro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One important consideration in buying this book for me was the early John Byrne stories which he drew for Charlton back in the day. Sadly, all of the art has been pretty badly inked over and in several cases redrawn. I understand a bit of touching up because of the copyright issues surrounding the actors featured in the book but wow. The art is nearly unrecognizable from the original comics. This is also in part due to the radical change in tone of the colors. The bright oranges and colorful presentation of the original Byrne artwork from the 70s is ruined in this book and really, these pages were some of the best work done for this series. I own this because I'm a completist but those expecting to find the original Byrne work, faithfully reproduce will be disappointed.
