This comic cover brought back memories of the '70s sci-fi show I loved - Space 1999

This series aired at a time when I was all about living in a moon base!
Space 1999 comicbook I loved Space 1999 when I was a kid. There was something about their ship - The Eagle - that really drew me in. Seeing this comic book cover online brought back so many memories. This TV series ran between 1975 and 1977 I have 2 sets of the show on DVD, but don't recall how they aligns with the televised episodes.

Seven issues of a Space: 1999 comic book were published in 1976 and seem to still be available for about $12 for each book.

It's crazy to think how far past 1999 we are and what a different trajectory the space program went. No moon bases. And I was obsessed with the idea of living on a moon base!

Space 1999 DVDs And some Space Chase for the Atari 2600 thrown in... even though it's an awful game.
