Lost in Space actor Bill Mumy penned a few installments of the Star Trek comic series for DC. In these stories, he revisited his Lost in Space family by re-inventing them in the guise of aliens. Mumy was continually frustrated in his attempts to realize a new version of the 60s television series sensation, and DC afforded the opportunity for him to express some subtle semblance of his dream.
Following suit, I mischievously paid my own tributes in the cover illustrations. Hidden in the hair-texture of the boy alien, Arrit (front and center of the floating hologram) is the title "Lost in Space." Unfortunately, my editor caught this Hirschfeld-esque stunt, and removed it from the printed issue. BUT -- he didn't remove Will Robinson himself, who appears among the assembled crew in his silver spacesuit in the far background! LOL!!
Eagle-eyed viewers might also catch E.T. the Extraterrestrial making a cameo appearance, peeking out from behind a crewmember. >wink!<
