Space 1999 v1 #5, 1976 - The space station crew of Moonbase Alpha encounters the original Greek gods of Olympus. John Byrne continues to explore new layout designs, from the thin vertical panels on pages 13-14 to the sharply diagonal scenes on the following page. Though the panels are well drawn, the backgrounds become more sparse toward the end. Though not tragic, it does seem to lessen the story's impact. This is number 3 of 4 Space 1999 issues with Byrne art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Byrne or Space 1999 issues. See also this blog's Byrne checklist.
