This review is from: Space: 1999 - Aftershock and Awe (Hardcover)
I have to confess that my rating might depend a lot on the fact that I am a huge fan of the series; however, because of the same reason, I pay a lot of attention to details and characterisations. Aftershock and Awe is a very good attempt to revitalise Gerry Anderson's series, especially in the brand new story. In the first part of the graphic novel, we can read a sort of "abridged and modified" version of the old Breakaway comics published in the '70s. Although, an understandably, the purists might disagree with this "treatment", I liked the new version a lot as it rejuvenates some elements (dialogues and drawings) and take it to a more XXI Century canonical comic book. The second story is completely new and it tries to imagine what happened to the Earth during and after the nuclear explosion which blasted the moon out of orbit. New characters are introduced and some intricate (but enjoyable) plots, including a conspiracy, are presented. I recommend this book to all Space: 1999 fans and I do hope we can read more about this in future editions.
