Comic Book Spotlight: "Atari Force"

In this video, we shine a spotlight on the DC Comics series Atari Force, which ran from 1984-1986. Over the course of 20 issues, the comic book told the story of a ragtag group of survivors who found themselves united under a common cause. Aboard their ship, Scanner One, the Atari Force worked to defeat the Dark Destroyer, a shadowy figure bent on destruction. With such famous creative talent as Gerry Conway, Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, Mike Baron, and Eduardo Barreto, Atari Force was a completely standalone title that featured some of comics' biggest talents. For fans of late seventies and early eighties sci-fi/space opera fare such as Star Wars, Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, and Battlestar Galactica.
