Sometimes work gets in the way of blogging but I am back with lots of cool stuff.
I never thought of 2001 as a children's film, but it did make an impression on me when I saw it as a child. While incomprehensible in some ways (especially the ending) it did show a grand scheme for my future in space.
Howard Johnsons was actually aboard the 2001 space station in a brief product placement. They also issued a children's menu which highlighted the movie (and their placement) but gave the story of the movie in a slightly different way than I remember.
However the comic itself reproduces some great visuals from the movie. Cue the music....
I love the final stereotyping where the boy wants to be a space pilot and the girl a space stewardess!
And just for fun, here is your activity page:
5-16-13 By popular demand here is the whole activity page and the menu.
Also someone commented on the cover's resemblance to Jack Kirby's cover of Race for The Moon (1958). I happen to have a good copy of the original art of that cover. What do you think?
