American Gothic Press Announces Irwin Allen’s Lost in Space: The Lost Adventures
At San Diego Comic-Con, American Gothic Press confirmed its licensing of Irwin Allen’s classic sci-fi series Lost in Space for a special six issue series based on two unproduced scripts originally written for television.
Lost in Space, which is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2015, was canceled in 1968 after a run of 83 episodes. But two unproduced teleplays have recently been discovered in the Irwin Allen Archives — both written by acclaimed television writer Carey Wilber. These never-before-seen episodes will be adapted into a comic book series by American Gothic’s Holly Interlandi, with interior artwork by Kostas Pantoulas and colors by Patrick McEvoy.
The series is being overseen by prolific television producer Kevin Burns. Burns has been responsible for developing and producing a number of Irwin Allen-themed projects and television specials over the years and, along with Legendary Television, is currently developing a new, updated version of Lost in Space for Netflix.
The first story arc is an adaptation of Wilber’s “The Curious Galactics”. It will run three issues and will premiere in March 2016. The first issue will ship with four collectible covers by Steve Stanley, RC Aradio, Patrick McEvoy, and a photo cover.
