Happy Halloween 2015

About two years ago I started planning a certain Justice League story for my comic-book universe. I wanted to do an adaptation of an old SUPER FRIENDS comic where the DC super-heroes meet some of the classic Universal Monsters (#10).

When I mentioned the story to my collaborator, Andy Kapellusch, he, too was enthusiastic about working on it. Eventually I decided which members of the JLA should be involved, and which "monsters" should be involved, and I wrote the story. Andy graciously volunteered to draw the story, and we were all set.

Or so we thought.

Jupiter 2 Launch Anniversary

Today is a red-letter day in the history of the classic TV series Lost in Space.

According to the first episode of the series, the ill-fated Jupiter 2 launched on its mission to Alpha Centauri on this date, October 16, 1997.

So 18 years ago, the Space Family Robinson went missing in this tragic Alpha Control accident. Also lost, believed liquidated in the lift-off exhaust, was Doctor of Space Psychology Zachary Smith.
