My trusty Google news alert has this evening brought to my attention this review by Nathan Wilson at Broken Frontier of Farscape: Scorpius #1.
Among the many nice things Mr. Wilson said about the issue, here are a few of my favorite quotes:
“Mack does an excellent job in this first issue of establishing how events in the villain’s past shaped and molded the “real time” experiences of Scorpius as he engages the Grennij. Particularly innovative is how Mack juxtaposes previous betrayals and manipulations against Scorpius’ contemporary motives with Grrior.”
“Well-paced, succinct and vivid writing, there is not a single weakness in Mack’s storyline or plot.”
“Mack and O’Bannon succeed with Farscape: Scorpius #1 where a lot of other first issues (although technically a second issue because of #0) fail. Fans of the television show will see and appreciate both the familiar and the new here. Fans who read the main series will find the story revelations and interplay between Scorpius and other members of the Farscape universe, both past and present, a strong companion to their other monthly purchase.”
