The stories that Bill Mumy wrote are first class entertainment, and very good Science Fiction.

I'm more interested in the story than the collectible piece.

Back in the early 1990's, Innovation Publishing launched an ambitious project: a series of comics based on the characters and situations of Irwin Allen's classic sci-fi fantasy. Not only was it spearheaded by Billy Mumy ("Will Robinson" himself), it featured a more dramatic and adult take on what was basically became a family show aimed squarely at the children.

In the first year of publication there were twelve self-contained episodes that re-established the family unit and reminded readers that Dr. Smith was not the "kindly uncle" he later became in the series but a self-serving, money-hungry opportunist that might sacrifice any one of them for his own ends. It also showcased some of the best comic art, allowing for a more-detailed look at the workings of the Jupiter Two (now, apparently twice the size of the television ship) and more intriguing, and realistic-looking, aliens. The series also allowed the characters to have grown somewhat: both Penny and Will were adolescents, just coming to grips with their burgeoning sexuality, while Judy's feelings for Don were explored, something only hinted at in the series.

The second year of the series - the appropriately-titled "Voyage to the Bottom of the Soul" - dealt with a true survival story: the family has been separated and flung to distant locations throughout the galaxy. Dr. Smith and Will are in a devastated American southwest while John, Maureen, and Penny are on an alien planet, complete with revolutionaries in an oppressive Mexican-like society. As Don and Judy struggle to make the best of an alien "Garden of Eden," the Robot, back at the Jupiter Two, jockeys with machinery to return the family to the fold.

It took nearly 13 years for this story to finally see the light of day, but it was sure worth it. Fans of the original Lost In Space TV series should buy this book post haste if they haven't already. Written by Bill Mumy and subjected to an incredible number of delays, false starts, and just plain bad luck, his ultimate follow-up to the TV show(not to mention the Innovation comic series) that never had a proper conclusion on it's own should satisfy everyone. The artwork, (by Michal Dutkiewicz) is perfectly satisfying in the rendition of each character--somewhat aged as would be expected. The characters themselves are true to the first season in particular (leaving out most of the campiness that came later). Equally enlightening is Bill Mumy's introduction, detailing the trials and tribulations of trying to bring this story to publication. All in all, a must have to go along with the newly released DVDs of the original series.

As a 50-year-old who grew up with Lost in Space
(and had the pleasure of meeting the very kind Mr. Mumy
at a Charlotte convention in the early '90s), I believe
fans of the show will be pleased with this ending to the
saga of the lost Robinson family and Dr. Smith. Bill
clearly put a lot of thought into the plot, and paid tribute to Guy Williams' Zorro series and the Swiss Family Robinson in the process (I
won't spoil for the reader how this is done). For those of
us who will always have a warm place in our hearts for the show,
this volume is a must.

I would love to read the final chapter of Lost in Space, but I can't imagine spending almost $300 for this book. Is there any other means to read this? Any electronic version out there? I'm more interested in the story than the collectible piece. Thanks.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I had about four of the stories in individual comic books from Innovation, but not the complete set. I honestly watched Amazon for over a month waiting for the price to come down. It never did, so I bit the bullet and paid the full asking price. I'm really glad that I did.

Like many others, I grew up watching Lost in Space and Star Trek during the 1960's. I was about the same age as young Will Robinson, and instead of two sisters I had an older brother and a sister. I felt that we had a lot in common, although my "space adventures" were reserved for back yard excursions with my best friend. When I heard about Bill Mumy's desire to "finish the story" through his own writings and eventual compilition into a book, I felt that I had to check it out. I feel like I was living the adventure with him all over again. Every member of the Robinson family gets the opportunity to have their dreams fulfilled, and after all isn't this what all of us want and hope for in life? Thank you for sharing your dream with us, Bill Mumy. If you haven't checked out the book yet, please give it a try. You'll be glad that you did!
