I am over the moon to announce that I am writing for Legendary Entertainment’s reboot of the 60s sci-fi classic , Lost in Space, which is currently available on Netflix. As detailed in today’s Hollywood Reporter, I have written a four-part prequel comic to the hugely successful TV show, to be drawn by incredible artist, Zid.

Writing a separate arc alongside me, I am very proud to say is comics legend Brian Buccellato, who has worked on many titles including Superman, Batman, the Flash, Hellblazer and The Black Bat.
The comic, with the title “Countdown to Danger”, will be released in four volumes starting in October 2018.
More details soon. 😀
