My earliest memory of Space: 1999 is a coloring book I had as a kid. The idea of The Moon being knocked out of orbit and hurtling through space is a crazy one, but just the kind of big concept that a budding comic reader like me loved back in the 70's. I am a fan of Martin Landau's work in films like Ed Wood and Crimes and Misdemeanors and I recently checked out the original pilot for Space: 1999 on YouTube. It was a kick seeing the "futuristic" world of 1999 with Landau in his prime.
