It’s the closing issue of “The Curious Galactics”, a storyline based on Carey Wilber’s unfilmed teleplays for Irwin Allen’s classic TV show!

On a routine radar expedition, John Robinson, Will Robinson, and Major Don West have encountered an eerie desert landscape that doesn’t seem to have an end or a way out. They are forced to make camp and fix their trusty Robot, all the while unknowingly the subjects of an alien experiment that is about to send some serious obstacles their way.
“The Curious Galactics”, alongside “Malice in Wonderland”, is a completed teleplay discovered in the Irwin Allen archives which was never filmed due to the series’ premature cancellation following Season 3.

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.
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.
