Are the Voyager comics any good?
Do they contradict the TV show's better episodes?
Did any series characters got killed in them?
Do they revisit any of the storylines/places/races that showed up in the series?
Re: Are the Voyager comics any good?
Well, there are a couple of different sources of Voyager comics. There's the Marvel/Paramount Comics series from 1996-98, which ran for 15 monthly issues and a 4-part miniseries that was effectively issues 16-19 in all but name; and there were four different VGR stories from Wildstorm in 2000-01, three graphic novels and a 3-issue miniseries. So that's only 25 comics telling 13 distinct stories.
Quality-wise, they're a mixed bag, but there were some I thought were reasonably good, like Marvel #10, the Splashdown miniseries, and Wildstorm's Avalon Rising.
There is a bit of a timing discrepancy in Splashdown, the sort of error that can creep in when a storyline spans months of real time while taking less than a day of story time. In the first issue, the story is said to take place pretty soon after "Scorpion," since that story was presumed to fall between issues 13 & 14 of the monthly; but in the last issue, there's a reference to the destruction of the Hirogen relay network in "Hunters," which is much later in the fourth season. But either timing reference could be ignored if you wanted.
