Back cover

Back cover:
In an alternate universe where JFK was never assassinated, humankind has suffered through World War III and built a base on the Moon by the year 1999.
September 13th, 1999 - 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 are launched towards their destiny across the stars. But what of the cataclysm and wanton destruction caused to the Earth in its wake?
This groundbreaking retro-reintroduction to the sci-fi hit series from the early 1970s begins with Awe - an adaption of Space: 1999's pilot episode, Breakaway.
Now expanded to include both new and unfilmed material, this revolutionary retelling of a sci-fi classic is illustrated with the remastered art of comics legend Gray Morrow and the great Neal Adams's own Continuity Studios.
The story continues in Aftershock as nine lives are forever changed by the carnage left in the Moon's wake. Aftershock explores the scientific, environmental and socio-political repercussions of a world left with no Moon.
This edition of Aftershock and Awe also includes a never-before-seen look at BLAM! Ventures unproduced follow-up comic series, Mission: Alpha.
