The author does a good job covering the treasury-sized 2001: A Space Odyssey special and the individual issues of the short-lived series. Few non-comic fans will probably even remember the series, having been produced nearly a decade after the original movie had premiered. The only thing of note about it, besides Jack Kirby's work, was the introduction of the character that would become known as Machine Man. The rest was all Kirby - his take on another form of science fiction (he'd already done the ancient astronaut/Chariots of the Gods thing with The Eternals and his own unique mythos with the Fourth World/New Gods over at DC Comics).
It's an interesting and nearly enlightening read, but this is definitely just something for the comic book fan or the niche Arthur C. Clarke/Odyssey aficionado.
