Me gustaría leer esta historieta en formato novela o serie de novelas largas. Más que una historia es una premisa, una muy interesante. Muchas novellas de la época dorada de la ciencia ficción son también principios de historias o premisas interesantes. De ahí que tantas series, películas y libros posteriores se inspiren en ellas.
