Three forthcoming issues bring you the secrets of Batman ’66, Lost in Space and MORE…
You know what I love about TwoMorrows’ RetroFan? It can be about anything. So long as it hits that ’50s-’80s sweet spot, editor Michael Eury is game.
Well, there are three issues in the offing that offer you the typically broad array of timeless topics such as Batman ’66, Lost in Space, Sheena, The Green Hornet — even Three’s Company.
And of course, it’s not just live-action TV shows either. There’s toys, cartoons — you name it.

A few thoughts:
— The issues are slated for release later this year and early 2021. (That’s subject to change as is so much with the comics industry these days.) RetroFan #12 is due Dec. 2, 2020; RetroFan #13 is due Feb. 3, 2021; and RetroFan #14 is due April 7, 2021.
— The issues will be available in comics shops but you can already pre-order them through TwoMorrows: Click here for #12, here for #13 and here for #14.
— Don’t forget there are two issues of RetroFan still to come before then, both of which have been delayed due to the coronavirus: #10, featuring Shaft, slated for August (click here) and #11, spotlighting Adventures of Superman and Dark Shadows, set for October (click here).
