|Hey, all ya feebs, geeks, an' bastiches!|
Today, we turn our attentions to “Space Bikers” (Yes, really!), the most famous example of which just may be one of our favorite original comic book creations – LOBO! Because, as Lobo would be quick to point out if he were here (…and aren’t we all glad that he’s NOT!), we really should mention him more often at this Blog – he IS “The Main Man”, after all! !
As Lobo rocket-bikes his way through galaxies both known and unknown, we are left to wonder where such an outrageous concept as “Space Bikers” might have originated.
|Naw, it couldn't be with US, could it?|
|Yeah, I guess it WOULD! Them's SPACE BIKES, all right!|
Daniel J. Travanti (who will later star in HILL STREET BLUES… Yes, really, again!)
|Be CAREFUL out there, Dan!|
Lynda Gaye Scott (actress and heir to the Scott Tissue fortune – as some accounts have reported).
Dawson Palmer: The regular “monster actor” on LOST IN SPACE.
Joe E. Tata: (later "Nat" of BEVERLY HILLS 90210).
I can’t imagine such an outrageous concept as “Space Bikers” predating LOST IN SPACE (…and it’s most “creative” and prolific writer Peter Packer), so let’s toss it there – and remember that whenever we enjoy LOBO in the future.
