Astronauts in Trouble (2015)

Larry Young's early 2000s series Astronauts In Trouble is being reprinted at Image, re-serialized as a monthly comic book .  These are a couple of the new covers by Charlie Adlard, of whom I'm something of  a fan, having enjoyed his early work on the X-Files comic and his present work on The Walking Dead.  Must confess I've yet to pick this up although its riding high on my get round to very soon list.

If you've read some and you want to share your thoughts then post in the comments below.

Alien (1979)

A fantastic picture showing the alternative spacesuits from the 1979 Classic.  My guess is Scott kept moving the same ones around from set to set to maintain the cluttered functional aesthetic of the Nostromo.  We've looked at them before in pictures like the one below but some pictures are worth showing more than once and this times it's in Black and White so that must make it art!

Saying; Goodbye Starman

A life well lived.  A legacy to enrich an infinite of number life times and knowing all of that this still hurts beyond the ability of words to explain the sense of loss.

Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)

Independence Day: Resurgence.  That's Independence Day the sequel coming sometime in the middle of  this year.  I think I don't care enough to see this but here are some nice looking spacesuits from the trailer.


Petlya Oriona (1981)

Petlya Oriona aka Orions Loop is another film from the Soviet Union, as it was once known.
From IMDB, because I've never had the pleasure.... "A strange phenomenon has been noticed on the outskirts of our Solar system that quickly approaches the Earth. It's called "Orion's Loop." A spaceship with a crew of people and androids identical to them is sent to intercept the anomaly. But strange events start happening as the spaceship approaches the mysterious loop."

Thanks again to Tim, for the pointer
