Space: 1999 - Breakaway



No producer credits. Arthur Korb?

Pretty solid adventure, with nice art, and a mushroom cloud as a bonus!

The mostly black-and-white cover is also very spiffy--I like how the Power Records logo is sans color, too--nice touch.

Most of the dialog was lifted verbatim from the pilot episode. They did a nice job of editing an hour-long show down to this shorter version without losing any of the story. The artist(s) did an excellent job of capturing the look of the show pretty accurately (I don't know why Paul Morrow looks like The Green Arrow though), and the destruction of the nuclear pile was much better looking here. Great stuff for a children's record!

There are three comic adaptations of the pilot!
This one.
Space:1999 #1 (the color comic) by Joe Staton
Space:1999 #1 (the b/w magazine) by Gray Morrow (Who apparently is the model for Paul Morrow, not Green Arrow)!

I, too had heard about Gray Morrow using himself as Paul in the B&W Charlton magazine comics. The Power artist(s) must have used Gray's artwork for their character templates.

For years, this comic was as close to the real episode as I could get; Power's adaptation of this episode is by far the best comic version to date!

The voice actors do pretty darn good approximations of the original actors. In fact, I'll bet that if you pitched these recordings down about a percent, they'd sound almost dead-on. The artwork is also really very good.
