Reading Room: "Man-Gods from Beyond the Stars" Part 1

Ridley Scott mentioned Chariots of the Gods? as being a primary inspiration for Prometheus...
...so let's look at a strip also inspired by Erich Von Daniken's concepts!
And we'll take another look at this story...tomorrow!
Written by Doug Moench, illustrated by Alex Nino.
Though largely discredited today, Von Daniken's books about "ancient astronauts" influenced pop culture in the 1970s, including tv (BattleStar Galactica) and comics (Jack Kirby's The Eternals, which was originally called Return of the Gods!) as well as this tale from Marvel Premiere #1 (1975) that's never been reprinted!

  1. Hi Could you cover Marvel Preview #9 Man-God. And #10's back up story on Hercules: Prince of Power. I'm attempting to finish Man-God with writer Roy Thomas. He's plotted part II for me like three years ago. I hope to have Roy finish the story soon as well.
