FedCon 29 | Vortrag | Es lebe Captain Future | by Reinhard Prahl & Thorsten Walch

The authors Reinhard Prahl and Thorsten Walch present at FedCon 29 the first, only and comprehensive reference book in German language on the cult series! On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of “Captain Future” in Germany, a non-fiction book with everything worth knowing about the crew of the Comet will be published by the publishing house “in Farbe und Bunt”.

Four decades ago, “Captain Future” set out in his overhead spaceship Comet in Germany to protect the galaxy from power-hungry criminals and the enemies of freedom. But there is no Captain without a crew! So the living brain, Professor Simon Wright and the androids Otto and Grag with their cute alien pets Yiek and Oak were always on board. The planet policewoman Joan Landor, Ezella Garnie and little Ken Scott also accompanied the Wizard of Science on his spectacular adventures.

In 2020 we will celebrate the series’ fortieth birthday in Germany and the charisma of the Wizard of Science and his friends is still unbroken. So what better occasion for a book about the red-haired hero of the galaxy could there be? And here it is – the first and only non-fiction book that deals extensively with the animated series “Captain Future”.

Backgrounds, facts, interviews, reviews of all episodes and fun facts for nerds. Es lebe Captain Future (Long live Captain Future) contains everything there is to know about the series, its history and its afterlife.

Lecturer: Reinhard Prahl & Thorsten Walch
Duration: 60 min  -  The Lecture will be held in: german
