Captain's Library: SPACE: 1999 "The Last Moonrise"

Last week, we presented the first of three different comic book adaptations of the pilot episode, "Breakaway".
Today, we offer the second adaptation, from #1 of the Space: 1999 b/w magazine.
Written by Nicola Cuti, drawn by Gray Morrow.
It's interesting to see how much is left out of the five-page story, as opposed to the twenty-page Power Records version, which is much more complete.
Artist Gray Morrow was also the magazine's art editor, and painted all eight covers, some of which were reused on merchandise like t-shirts and puzzles.
The cover art for #1, shown above, was also used as advertising key art for first season tv broadcast ads.
