Space Family Robinson (piggyback)

Just a shorty here today.  I occasionally still watch Lost in Space on the Me TV Network.  It comes on pretty late now on Saturday nights after Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, but used to show at a legitimate hour.  Most of them are too corny for my taste, but as a youngster I used to love them.  The comic books are a different animal.  Some blogger looks like he scanned his own collection for others (me) to read, so I thought I'd others his link in case they were interested too. 

Yes, this Space Family Robinson actually predated Lost In Space, but a legal settlement allowed Irwin Allen to use the name in his TV show and for the comic book to use the name of the TV show. 
The first issue (picture above), is from 1962, three years before Irwin Allen's series premiered.

I'm fixing to run by the library to look for some used books.  They'd gotten in a bunch of SF, plus I wanted to check out some of their larger books for color photos to use for collage material.  So I'm outta here.

This was one of those shows that was fun to make fun of, which in fairness was probably the idea. Probably.

Yeah, supposedly the comic was different from the series, so I'm interesting in reading a few. It's funny, though, the TV series was very much like a comic book. Had they have jettison's Dr. Smith into the void of space somewhere in Season One, it would have been a much better show. Then they could have explored other planets, aliens, and things without his silliness.
