Adapted (loosely) from Swiss Family Robinson, and unrelated to the TV show ‘Lost In Space,’ (which also featured a family named Robinson shipwrecked in the cosmos, and may or may not have been inspired by this comic) this Gold Key comic debuted in 1962.  Sporadically published for the next 20 years or so, the series told the story of Craig and June Robinson and their children Tim and Tam, trying to make their way home after a mysterious cosmic storm shipwrecked them somewhere in the galaxy.  Aside from some lovely Dan Spiegle art, I honestly don’t remember much about the issues of this book I’ve read, though I’m sure I read a dozen or so of them throughout my life…

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    What, no “Sands of Blood”!? I have ruined many people’s weekends (as in, they couldn’t put the book down and got nothing accomplished) by giving them a copy of “The Cowboy Wally Show.”
