Throughout the years it seems that television and comics have always
complimented each other well. The classic 1966 televison series Batman came
from a comic series as well as the many televison spinoffs of the Superman
comic character. Although the television series Lost in Space did not
come from a comic book, Gold Key Comics had a popular comic series out known
as Space Family Robinson prior to the television program. More recently,
Innovation Comics came out with a licensed comic series based on Lost in Space.
The Innovation comics were amazing! Bill Mumy actually wrote many of the
issues and Mark Goddard even wrote one himself. The series was quite popular
but unfortunately the fans as well as the comic characters were left Lost in Space
when Innovation went out of business right in the middle of the story line.
With the upcoming movie to be released in April of 1998, Dark Horse Comics has
secured the license for an upcoming comic series based on the film. Many fans
hope the comic series will some how finish up the story line Innovation started.
