I was about to link to a specific post when I decided that the best thing was to just direct all of you at the Space: 1970 blog. I don’t remember seeing this site before, but now that I’ve spent almost thirty minutes reading through old posts there’s no way I’ll forget to not check this at least a few times each week.
So journey with us back to the days when special effects were created by skillful hands and spaceships were detailed models, when robots were obligatory comedy relief, when square-jawed heroes and cloaked villains battled among the stars — and the future was fun!
To help you get started at the blog here are a few direct links for you to enjoy:
- ADVENTURES ON THE PLANET OF THE APES (1975) Marvel Comics Cover Gallery
- THE BIONIC WOMAN (1977) Charlton Comics Cover Gallery
- Erin Gray – The Ultimate Space Babe(Have I told you about the time I spent chatting with Erin Gray on the set of “The Guild” a few years ago?)
- THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (1980) Premium Art By Boris
There. Those should keep you happy this morning. Just don’t blame me when you dig deeper into the site and lose track of time.
