The Boys from Derby: "Moonless Night/Intelligent Species" by Cuti and Staton

Hey, Groove-ophiles! As many times as we've grooved to the greatness of Charlton's adaptations of the cult-fave TV show SPACE: 1999, we've never glommed the fabulous first ish of the color mag (August 1975)! It was only natural that the powers-that-were at Charlton handed that dyn-o-mite debut over to the titanic talents of Nick Cuti and Joe Staton. Just as it was only natural that our Boys from Derby could create a scintillating sci-fi mini-epic like..."Moonless Night/Intelligent Species"!


  1. Space-1999...I remember when this series first aired on TV, we thought this would be the second coming of Star friends & I were anxious for any original sci-fi show.The comic was an added treat!

  2. The last page of 'Intelligent Species' is missing. It's got a big reveal/'gotcha!' moment at the end. (Either that or I'm hallucinating. I'll have to dig out my old copy of this issue...)
