Before He-Man, Transformers and the Ninja Turtles, kids throughout the world thrilled to the weekly cartoon adventures of a brave band of heroes defending the Earth from the evil Zoltar - a group known as G-Force...

Ah, now this is what I call nostalgia. Transformers are dull in comparison to the adventures of G-Force. Anyone who remembers getting up on a Saturday morning to watch Battle of the Planets will love this original story which brings everyone's favourite characters into the 21st Century. Jason, Mark, Princess, Keyop and Tiny are all here. Yet they will seem slightly different to how you remember them.

If, like me, you were saddened to see that the cartoons were not as great as you remember when they were released on DVD last year then this graphic novel will help you rediscover what it was about Battle of the Planets that captured your imagination as a child.

In Trial by Fire Mark and Jason are constantly fighting for the number one position, Tiny has a serious food addiction and Keyop's secret porn stash is discovered. I also noticed that Zoltar looks like a bizarre drag queen with way to much lipstick on.

Fantastic artwork and a gripping up to date script drag Battle of the Planets into the here and now. And at a measly £8 it's fantastic value for money.
