Apollo is a full-length graphic novel recounting the story of the first men on the moon, unpacking the urban legends, the gossip and the speculation to tell a story about life, death, dreams and the reality of human kind’s greatest achievement in exploration.

In 140 pages of full-colour sequential art, Apollo will weave public information, records and recordings relating to the mission into a fact-filled odyssey, with creative interpretations of key events hypercharging the motivations, fears and excitement surrounding this bold voyage led by three astronauts: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Mike Collins.

Written by Matt Fitch and C.S. Baker, with art by Mike Collins, Apollo is published by SelfMadeHero and part-funded by Arts Council England.

Readers of this blog will receive behind-the-scenes access to every aspect of the book’s production, from script and art development right through to finished product and beyond. You can also follow the project on Twitter.
