The Spectrum anthology!
Gerry Anderson’s work was a huge part of the British television landscape from the 1960s to the 1990s, and his shows remain popular with science fiction fans across the globe. The three titles included in Spectrum span the genre from alien fighting to space-based police procedural. Bringing them together in this anthology will create an exciting and unique comic book.
New Captain Scarlet was a reboot of the original 1960s show broadcast in the 1990s. Using CGI as an evolution of the original Supermarionation puppetry, the show followed the titular Captain
Scarlet in his battle against the invading Mysteron aliens. Terrahawks used an altered version of the Supermacromation style, refined with 1980s technology and incorporating latex hand-puppets. The series sees a ragtag group of humans defend Earth after the destruction of NASA. Finally, the 1990s Space Precinct was a live action series that incorporated puppetry in creating realistic and
sophisticated alien characters. A police procedural set in space, it was known for its groundbreaking special effects.
The creative teams for the new anthology are Steve Tanner (writer), Pete Woods (artist) and James Grey (letters) on New Captain Scarlet; Richmond A Clements (writer) and James Gray (art and lettering) on Space Precinct; and Dan Whitehead (writer), Ste Pickford (artist) and James Grey (lettering) on Terrahawks. The cover will be drawn by Steve Pugh known for his work at DC, Marvel, Dark Horse and 2000AD.
