Danger, Will Robinson! “Irwin Allen’s Lost in Space: The Lost Adventures” debuted its premiere issue this week and American Gothic Press is doing something rather special with the property. A number of unused screenplays from the original TV series (1965-1968) were recently discovered and are now getting the opportunity to see the light of day but in comic book format.
Irwin Allen’s legendary Sci-Fi property returns! Before being prematurely canceled during its third season, LOST IN SPACE had several screenplays lined up and ready to film. These are those lost episodes, adapted for comics from screenwriter Carey Wilber’s original teleplays! First up is “The Curious Galactics,” a three-part tale that sends John Robinson, Will Robinson, and Major Don West from a run-of-the-mill radar scouting mission into a potentially deadly alien maze.
After being off the air for nearly 50 years, Irwin Allen’s classic Sci-Fi series LOST IN SPACE returns! Two unproduced teleplays have recently been discovered in the Irwin Allen Archives — both written by acclaimed television writer Carey Wilber (STAR TREK, LOST IN SPACE, RAWHIDE, THE TIME TUNNEL). Now these never-before-seen episodes have been adapted into a comic book form! IRWIN ALLEN’S LOST IN SPACE: THE LOST ADVENTURES #1 by Carey Wilber, Holly Interlandi, Kostas Pantoulas, and Patrick McEvoy will be available to purchase on CaptainCo, Comixology, and comic shops everywhere March 16th, 2016.
