Hartford Betamax Black Book Edition Stars Without Number Campaign Influence- Marvel Treasury Edition - 2001 A Space Odyssey Comic Book

Back when I was a kid this book was given to me. The 1968 space epic '2001 A Space Odyssey' was and is one of my all time favorite movies.
This comic was given to me by one of my all time favorite movies. I'm a devotee of Diversions Of The Groovy Kind Blog and found that those wonderful folks posted the entire comic for us fans! They go into a brief history of the comic with the following: 
"Yeah, the all-time, art-house, critically-acclaimed 1968 sci-fi epic from MGM was, to put it mildly, a BIG THING during the Groovy Age (especially pre-Star Wars). And so, natch, was Jack Kirby. When Jack returned to Marvel Comics in 1976, one of the most spectacular announcements was the fact that the King was going to adapt 2001 for Marvel's tabloid-sized Treasury Edition line. Dunno how it came about, seeing that this adaptation was 8 years after the flick premiered, but Marvel and MGM got it all together, turned Jack loose (aided and abetted by inker Frank Giacoia, letterer John Costanza, and colorist Marie Severin)."

Since they paid it forward to me I'm paying it forward to you folks!
You see the whole thing right over

This is pretty much the look of my Stars Without Numbers campaign right there in one shot. The comic dynamic, the concepts mind blowing, and whole thing cosmic weird! 
Big thanks to Marvel and 'The Diversions of The Groovy Kind' Blog!
