A nuclear chain reaction blows the moon – and the inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha – out of orbit and into space! Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton team to do a solid job on this debut issue of a series based on the cult classic “Space: 1999” television series.
Series hostess Countess R.H. Von Bludd gets an origin story in this horror anthology debut. Unfortunately, none of these tales – from Charlton regulars including Joe Gill, Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton – offer much in the way of originality or artistic execution.
On a stormy night, a young man hitches a ride from a vampire – and lives to tell the tale! The lead feature is one of four sub-par stories from the likes of Enrique Nieto, Dick Piscopo and, thankfully, Tom Sutton (who also crafted that excellent cover!)
Series host Colonel Whiteshroud explains the Monster Hunters Club to the visiting Countess Von Bludd. While a better debut than sister series Scary Tales, this first issue by the likes of Nicola Cuti, Joe Staton, Wayne Howard and others lacks any real creative spark.
The crew of Moonbase Alpha encounters a race of extremely hostile aliens – or are they actually a peace-loving people? Fun but familiar, this is another decent outing from Nicola Cuti and a young John Byrne.
A surprise visit from an old acquaintance sees E-Man recollecting his earliest days on Earth. This final issue is an uneven finish to a strong run of comics from the classic E-Man team of Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton. Also featuring Rog 2000 from a young John Byrne.
The hunt for the Boar takes E-Man to the center of the Earth – and charges Nova into a super-powered future! Nova levels up in this full-length adventure from the creative team of Nicola Cuti and Joe Staton.
