From March 1997: The first issue of Titan Magazine's SPACE: ABOVE AND BEYOND comic/ magazine, based on the short-lived FOX fighting-in-space TV show that spluttered to a halt after one season.
Titan must have known this monthly had a finite life before they even published this first issue (complete with a nice pin badge with the squadron logo) as the bulk of the contents came from the US comic published by Topps... and that only mustered five issues before closing.
The three-part limited series revived the old Marvel tradition of stretching an adaptation of the feature-length pilot over three issues. The two-part follow-up, The Gauntlet, was an original adventure. The end of the TV show, along with (presumably) low sales, meant Topps didn't publish anything else.
The UK edition managed four issues (the three-part pilot and the first installment of the follow-up) with an announcement that the impending fifth edition would be the last. Titan obviously had no intention of spending their own money on commissioning new material. But the fifth issue never appeared.
Titan also issued a trade paperback collection (now long out-of-print but a regular fixture of remaindered book shops for years) which collected all five of the US issues.
The demise of the Titan edition can probably be attributed to the show's UK scheduling. Sky, predictably, had first bite and - as I recall - ran the show on (the soon-to-be-defunct) SKY TWO channel (which they seemed to be positioning as their home for SF and fantasy shows). Titan launched the monthly to coincide with the terrestrial broadcast on BBC TWO... except the schedulers tucked the show away in a late Friday night slot where audiences (especially the type who would then go out and buy a comic about the show) must have been miniscule.
The show has now been released on DVD.
