I love revivals. The idea of taking a long forgotten character or concept and reinventing them for a new audience is intriguing. After all if something was successful before why can’t it be now? While wandering around the Big Apple Comic Con, I stopped by a display of action figures from the sixties. Gary Schaffer and Eric C. Hayes ran the display and had finished production on a graphic novel for the toys known as “The Outer Space Men.” Intrigued by the art and the idea I purchased a copy of the book and found myself pleasantly surprised by what I read. Eric and Gary, along with Rudolf Montemeyer, and Marc Borstel had taken these bendable toys from the sixties and built a story around them.
