Trevor Beattie is an ad man, filmmaker, and producer of the Bafta award-winning movie Moon, directed by Duncan Jones . He is also devising the marketing campaign for Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic Space Tourism Programme. Here’s his thoughts on Apollo:
“As a child of Apollo, I grew up bedazzled by Buzz and Neil. This really was a cartoon adventure, of epic proportions. Happening in my living room. And my imagination. How apt then that those superhuman escapades should now be represented and captured so lovingly as a Comic Book. This book is a thing of beauty. It takes me back, yet projects me forward. The spirit of endeavour depicted here is the very reason I now possess a ticket to fly to Space with Virgin Galactic. Space is the ultimate comic adventure. It started with Apollo 11, and it’s never left me.”
