    Default Rockne O'Bannon To Write Farscape Comics - Cannon

    I'll just post this for anyone who hasn't seen it. Rockne O'Bannon will be writing the Farscape comics (November Release) and it's gonna be Farscape cannon, picking up the story after Peacekeeper wars.

    I haven't read a comic since I was a wee lad but I will have to get these.

    Let's all mail him to make sure Dargo got saved by Jothy and didn't die in that suicidal last stand!

    I hadn't heard about this. That's pretty cool. I will definitely be picking these up.

    I wonder if that means that the webisodes Scifi.com was planning have been canceled?

    Glad to hear you are excited about the comics too.

    Last word was that the webisodes are still on.

    Yeah, these comics are supposed to be the link between the series/PKW and the webisodes

    O'Bannon said the comics will be the season 5 that we never got. Apparently John and company will go to Hyneria. And, as has been mentioned earlier, the comics will lead into the webisodes. I have a feeling that we won't see the webisodes until autumn of 2009. But it's a start and I'll gladly take it! I haven't been this excited since PK Wars!

    I know exactly what you mean. I'm very excited too. If the Hyneria storyline does move forward, that would be great. I've always wanted to see Rygel re-take his throne.

    I hadn't heard this before. I'm not normally a big fan of comics, but this definitely sounds like it's worth my attention.

    After all, it's more Farscape. What's not to like?

    Ugh, what's with all this TV to comics crap the last few years? It's different if it was ALWAYS a comic, like Batman, but I just can't handle TV comics.

    Well, they are being distributed by BOOM! Studios. You could order them off of their website, possibly even Amazon.com or something like that. And if you are really lucky, your local comic store may have or be able to get them for you.

    Me neither, actually. I never thought I would have a good reason to buy a comic book, honestly. Guess I was wrong about that.

    The more I think about it, the more I think that Farscape might actually work quite well in comic format. It will definitely be worth a look.
