Howdy, ‘Scapers! It is with great excitement and relief that I am finally able to post this information, which has been embargoed now for many months: coming this April from BOOM! Studios is a new, ongoing monthly comic-book series, Farscape: Scorpius.
The stories are plotted by Farscape series creator Rockne S. O’Bannon and scripted by yours truly. The art is by the talented Mike Ruiz, and editorial oversight is provided by BOOM! guru Ian Brill. The series is set shortly after Scorpius has been banished from Hyneria by the reinstated Dominar Rygel XVI and will run concurrently with the ongoing monthly Farscape series. The tone of the new series will be darker, edgier, and more serious than that of the main Farscape book plotted by Rockne and scripted by my buddy Keith R.A. DeCandido (aka kradical on LiveJournal).
Not excited yet? Check out the two variant covers for Issue #0, “Fire and Ice,” after the cut!
Is that sweet or what? I hope y’all will give this new series a look when it makes its debut this Spring!
