This is the first image that JJ released as a teaser for the run up to the launch of his first collection entitled 'Darker Side Of The Moon' and really ramped up the excitement for the new series - this 'Time Magazine' cover is a a dramatic cross between the Apollo 11 moon landing - and the very popular Alien film franchise... or in the world of JJ Adams you could say this was 'What really happened during the first moon landing'. There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the famous image of Buzz Aldrin taking his first steps on the moon and whether or not it was even genuine, so JJ has decided to have a little fun with it and has done so with the addition of a few new characters to set the scene. Firstly, we look at Buzz Aldrins space suit that has now been accessorised with the classic symbol of the 60's/70's - the smiley face, and a 'Weyland Yutani Corporation' logo on his upper arm -  the large conglomerate corporation, playing pivotal roles in the Alien movies. Appearing out from behind Buzz is a very curious looking E.T and the classic creatures from the Alien films, who are set to unexpectedly pounce on the man of the moment! Alien fans will also recognise the Prometheus Juggernaut Ship hovering in the corner and the Close Encounters Devils Tower ship appearing too. There might just be some hope out there though for good old Buzz and his partner Neil Armstrong in the form of a Predator Laser Sight - aimed directly at the Alien's head....
For music fans, the phrase 'Darker Side of the Moon' will forever conjure up Pink Floyd's 1973 concept album - and of course JJ also makes reference to this in the headline down in the bottom corner of the cover. If anyone remembers the live broadcast of the first moon landing on the BBC, they may just recall their unreleased song 'Moonhead' that played in between broadcast coverage of the first Apollo moon landing on 20 July 1969.
