Those paying rent at Montague Terrace tend toward paranoia, hallucinations, and occasional nastiness.

Even as we’re offered a peek through its many keyholes, things at Montague Terrace are a bit hazy. Once a Web comic hosted at the Activate collective, the black and white now-graphic novel from British brothers Warren and Gary Pleece is an uncomfortable read—rarely are the dramatics brought to distinct conclusions, and linear paths are hard to come by. No matter, these are opaque vignettes worth exploring. The Pleeces’ comics are rife with paranoia, surrealism, and for good measure, an occasional rift that opens up somewhere between present-day and flashback storytelling.

To Be Continued...” is back with more on “all things comics”, and as you know “Comics” don't always stay on the gridded page, but impact other media as well. Here's one of those unbelievable times for those of you who do not believe in “coincidence”.

In September of 1965 a science fiction TV series called Lost in Space debuted on CBS television, as created by Irwin Allen, who had found success in his show Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. The outer space series, which was originally planned to be named Space Family Robinson,  ran for 3 seasons, inspired a one-off cartoon, a big budget theatrical film and a number of comicbook adaptations.


Perhaps in your collecting years you’ve come across some of these… for example the first Gold Key comic, commonly called Space Family Robinson Lost in Space. Yes, yes, folks, there’s June and Craig and the kids, Tim, that irascible scamp and, Tam the… little princess… and… wait, what? Clancy the dog and Yakker the Parrot? What the hell is this? This isn’t the Spacefaring Robinson family we know. And were is the love-to-hate-him Dr. Smith? And where, oh, where, is Robot B-9? No “Danger Will Robinson?” And where’s Penny? Everybody had a crush on Penny Robinson growing up! You can’t have Lost in Space without Penny.


So, it was a bad adaptation, right? Well, as the lawyers for the Gold Key series must have said “Not So Fast!”
