Below you can see pages 6-15 of the #0 issue, comparing the pencil art by myself, the inks by Joseph Rubenstein, and the colors by Matt Webb. Obviously the lettering is not in place.
Page 6 – One of my favorite pages from the comic – the iconic Interceptor take-off sequence, as seen in almost every episode of the TV show.
Page 7 – Another iconic scene – missile-firing Interceptors doing battle with incoming alien UFOs.
Page 8 – Commander Ed Straker and Colonel Paul Foster supervise from SHADO Headquarters.
Page 9 – After conferring with the famously purple-wigged women staffers of Moonbase, Straker gives the order to launch SkyDiver!
Page 10 – The Sky 1 section of SkyDiver takes to the air to challenge the UFOs entering Earth’s atmosphere.
Page 11 – As Foster and Straker look on, a lone UFO makes it past SHADO’s forces to land somewhere in rural England.
Page 12 – A UFO pilot kills a hunters dog… and pays the price!
Page 13 – As the hunter loads the UFO pilot onto his truck, SHADO Mobiles arrive on the scene!
Page 14 – The hunter is as alarmed by the arrival of SHADO as he was by the alien ship!
Page 15 – I tried to create a cutaway view of the interior of a SHADO Mobile – which was challenging given that the interior set fits rather uncomfortably into the shape of the exterior model!
