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.
One can but hope. Good news that's doing so well

Re: new Farscape comic by O'Bannon & KRAD

That is FANTASTIC news, congrats to all involved!

The best (and most selfish!) part is that it pretty much confirms that there will be many more adventures to be read and shared!!

(Still hasn't shipped to my LCS yet, still eagerly waiting...)

I'm happy to hear these are doing well, KRAD. I'm holding out for the trade paperback version, but I'm cantankerous like that.

Re: new Farscape comic by O'Bannon & KRAD

Definitely picking up the HC Trade on both of these arcs.

I've been missing me some Farscape.

I won't apologize for not getting the single issues, I just don't like collecting Comic Mini-Series like that.

Maybe I'd feel different if it was Serialized... but honestly I'd rather just have another complete story every 6 months or so.

Well, it looks like there will indeed be a second printing of Farscape #1. Look for it in early February.

Re: new Farscape comic by O'Bannon & KRAD

I got my copy today from "The Forbidden Planet" in the UK (there was only a couple left on the shelves) and I've already read it twice, it's wonderful to have Farscape back in some way...

I'm not too keen on the way the Hynerians are drawn, but the rest the of the cast look great. And there's lots going on, many things I liked and most importantly the humour is there and pitched just right for Farscape (e.g. Jothee's "problem" and Chiana running through the corridors wear nothing but a pair of handcuffs and a holster. )

But there's deeper things going on too - Aeryn having trouble dealing with motherhood whilst Crichton finds fatherhood a breeze. And who's on that mysterious ship?

How long until part two? There's no way I'm waiting for the TPB!!!

Glad to hear it's so well received, I'm still waiting for the copy I ordered a few months ago to show up. I hope it does soon or I may try to get it somewhere else, if possible.

Are those covers at the link you've posted the final cover art? I ask because I didn't see them on an earlier link to Boom's site: Link.

Yup. These two issues simply haven't made it onto BOOM!'s site yet.

Re: new Farscape comic by O'Bannon & KRAD

Wow, TWO new series after this one? That's crazy. But in a great way!

I still have no read the first issue. I purchased it, but because of the weather delays and everything else, I started to re-watch the series from the beginning again. Figure take it all in and then dive into the comics, collecting them along the way.

I'm almost done season 2, so, I think I'll be reading them before the 3rd issue is out at this pace.

For what it's worth, my brother read the issue.
"It was exactly like an episode!" was what he said. And I can't think of higher praise! Can't wait to get there!!

Re: new Farscape comic by O'Bannon & KRAD

Too soon!

Life keeps getting in the way of my finishing the series before reading these! Just finished season 2...

And issue #1 is sitting next to my desk taunting me as I write...
