Do you happen to have an amazon link for it though? Because I couldn't find it on their website.
As Mr. Timson said, the individual issues aren't on sale through Amazon. The trade paperback, which should be available some time next year in the summer or fall, will be available through Amazon, though. You can, however, order them online directly from BOOM! Studios's web site, or get them at your local comic shop.

Will they be out in europe?
I'm not sure, but I do know that BOOM! will fulfill overseas orders, so you can order it directly from them at the above link.

I think it's more a riff on Winston Churchill's formulation after the Battle of El Alamein. "Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.
Rockne was the one who came up with the title, not me, but I get the feeling it was inspired by both Churchill and the Pumpkins....

They also have the comics for pre-order on Things from Another World. I've never actually used the site myself, but Dark Horse sent me there to but their stuff, so I'm assuming it should be trustworthy.

Re: new Farscape comic by O'Bannon & KRAD

Bumping this for two reasons.

1) The first issue is out. So nu? Whadjyall think, huh, huh?

2) The next miniseries has been announced. Entitled Strange Detractors, it too will be plotted by Rockne, scripted by me, published by BOOM!, and have covers by Joe Corroney and Dennis Calero; however this time the art'll be by Will Sliney. If all goes according to plan, it'll debut in March.

Re: new Farscape comic by O'Bannon & KRAD

My LCS did not have it, though they said it was ordered. Maybe it just came late, but they said there's no reason it shouldn't be on its way. So THAT Christmas present to myself well have to wait at least another week (hopefully that's it!!)

What is the general plot of Strange Detractors? (without being to spoilery, if possible). I know this has the Hynerian angle to capitalize on no budget (great way to approach this, for sure!), is the next doing the same thing?

At your local comic book store. If you don't have one (or if they're a bunch of big fat stinkies who won't carry it), you can order it from Things From Another World or directly from BOOM!

Also a fan group called Farscape Canada is taking orders of the comic for folks that can't find it at their local.

Apparently, between the weather and the holiday, a bunch of orders were delayed.

It's waaaaaaaaaaaay too soon to be talking plot for F:SD.

Thanks for the links. Looking at Boom's site, I noticed that they have the various covers shown for the various issues. However, there are a few that say "Farscape #2-4 (Cover A + B). Those three issues are not yet available. The title for the entry says "Cover A + B". Are only certain covers available with that order? Or is it that with that subscription you get duplicate copies with both covers A and B?

Re: new Farscape comic by O'Bannon & KRAD

I am tempted to order that comic, but overseas shipping will cost more than the item itself! Maybe I'll wait until the 4 are out and get them together, or simply for the paperback.

I discovered there had already been a 2-book comic miniseries of Farscape in 2002:
FARSCAPE: WAR TORN, but it seems to have had bad ratings. Details here:

Same for me

There might be a (UK) shop about 60 miles from me that'll get it though. (They seem to get a lot of US stuff but it's not listed on their website yet)

EDIT - ANother one (Forbidden Planet) has the Hardcover one scheduled for late March though. I don't know if the shipping costs will be cheaper for you from here?)

The Wildstorm series? I've seen that one go for stupid money on the back issue market.

Re: new Farscape comic by O'Bannon & KRAD

Diamond Distributors has sold out of Farscape #1 in five days.

*happy dance*

There are still copies available -- some stores haven't sold out, some (thanks to the holidays and the crap weather in some parts of the country) haven't gotten their initial orders yet, and some mail-order sites (and BOOM! themselves) still have a limited supply -- but they'll be going fast.

BOOM! is discussing the possibility of a reprint with Diamond.
