Outland (1981) Comic

Heavy Metal Magazine published an adaption of Outland beginning in June 1981.
Usually such things can be rather perfunctory and lacklustre affairs but this has art by the great Jim Steranko who knows a thing or two about rendering a spacesuit.
There is a marked difference between this and the film design because firstly Jim is like a god and can do whatever he pleases and secondly because, as you may have previously noticed, comic artists love a fishbowl helmet because it allows them the opportunity to convey facial expressions far more clearly.
