LOST IN SPACE is set thirty years in the future. En route to a distant colony, the Robinson family finds itself thrown off-course when their ship crash-lands on a mysterious and dangerous planet. On this strange new world, they encounter a hostile environment and an enigmatic alien robot. In order to survive, the Robinson family must rely on their training, and they’ll discover that no matter how lost they are, their family is their home.
The new graphic series offers readers the chance to explore “new missions, not aired on television, as our heroes struggle to survive in an unknown world full of new creatures, unexpected visitors, and new danger.”
Volume Two, set to be released in Spring 2019, will continue the adventure with a focus on fan favorite Robot and Doctor Smith, played by Parker Posey.
