However the real star of Outland was the comic strip adaptation of Outland illustrated by Jim Steranko appeared in Heavy Metal magazine in the June 1981, October 1981, and January 1982 issue.
The setting, issues, etc. would make the perfect setting for a Human Space Empire, X-Plorers, or Terminal Space Game.
Personally I love this film & why it gets written off is largely a crime because its not simply another western in space.
The themes of corruption vs corporate profits is even more relevant today then it was in 81

The art is up to the standards of those seen in Heavy Metal & among my favorites! Enjoy
