Below you can pages 16-23 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 16 – Foster and a SHADO Mobile have some trouble from a local hunter AND an alien UFO that was hidden in a lake.
Page 17 – The SHADO Mobile takes off in pursuit of the UFO, which is headed towards London.
Page 18 – The SHADO Mobiles pursue the UFO down the M4 highway towards London. So much for SHADO operating in secret! Meanwhile, General Henderson takes issue with Commander Straker.
Page 19 – The Mobiles finally get a bead on the last UFO, just as Straker and Henderson run outside in time to see it falling from the sky.
Page 20-21 – A double page spread showing the damaged UFO crashing to the ground and skidding across the parking lot of Harlington-Straker Studios (the ground-level cover for the underground SHADO HQ) before coming to a stop at the feet of Straker and Henderson.
Page 22 – Foster arrives just in time to watch Straker and Henderson argue in the aftermath of the UFO crash.
Page 23 – More talking. More burning.
Page 24 – Straker worries about the future as the #0 issue comes to a close.
This concludes the issue that was intended as a big “Series Finale” in comic book form, and was to have been followed by a 6-issue mini-series that would have been a sequel to UFO, picking up several years after the time of the TV series.
You can read Part 1 with the project backstory and the first five pages here.
Part 2 featuring pages 6-15 of issue #0 is here.
