Deutsche Einführung
Perry Rhodan ist der Titelheld der gleichnamigen deutschen Science-Fiction-Serie, die seit dem eight. September 1961 ununterbrochen wöchentlich in shape von Heftromanen mit einer Druckauflage von etwa eighty. 000 Heften (Stand: Jahr 2011) erscheint. Insgesamt sind bisher 2700 Hefte mit run a hundred and sixty. 000 Seiten erschienen, deren Geschichten einen Zeitraum von über 3000 Jahren umfassen (Stand: Mai 2013).
Am 30. September 2011 startete parallel zur alten Serie eine Neufassung additionally Perry Rhodan Neo, mit dem Untertitel „Die Zukunft beginnt von vorn“. In dieser landet Perry Rhodan erst im Jahr 2036 auf dem Mond.

Während die Perry-Rhodan-Heftromanserie von den geopolitischen Begebenheiten der realen Welt Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts ausging und die Handlung in einer nahen Zukunft beginnen ließ, geht Perry Rhodan Neo 50 Jahre später von der realen Welt des frühen 21. Jahrhunderts aus und beginnt ebenfalls in einer nahen Zukunft. So fliegt Perry Rhodan nicht im Jahre 1971 zum Mond, sondern erst 2036. Die Handlung nimmt somit aufgrund der geänderten Ausgangslage einen alternativen Verlauf. Die klassischen intent der Serie werden ebenfalls in eine nahe Zukunft verlagert und entsprechend interpretiert. Es werden neue Figuren eingeführt und bekannte Figuren in einem neuen Licht gezeigt.
Die Serie ist somit nicht kanonisch in Bezug auf das klassische Perryversum. Nach der Aussage Klaus N. Fricks auf dem five. Weltcon 2011 in Mannheim wird es auch keine Überschneidungen oder Referenzen zwischen den Serien wie zu den Atlan-Serien geben. Perry Rhodan und Perry Rhodan Neo bilden jeweils einen „eigenen Kosmos“.
