    Thought I'd toot my own horn for a moment....

    In November, BOOM! Studios will be releasing the first of a four-issue monthly Farscape comic book miniseries. Plotted by series creator Rockne S. O'Bannon, and scripted by Farscape novelist Keith R.A. DeCandido (that's me :D), with art by newcomer Tommy Patterson, the miniseries (very tentatitve title: The Beginning of the End of the Beginning) will pick up right where The Peacekeeper Wars left off, and will be consistent with the upcoming SciFi.com webisodes.

    The first miniseries (which we hope will be the first of many) will have Moya heading to Hyneria to get Rygel his throne back.

    Hopefully these will actually be available here, and hopefully the price tag won't be too ridiculous.

    If there's a TPB edition planned I'll buy it, but it's difficult to find a comic book shop that stocks stuff like this (or at all) round here.

    I let my LCS know that I wanted this when I read one of the interviews on CBR a bit ago.

    I'm looking forward to this more than any other comic I get (and I get quite a bit these days!)

    Was there a lot of give and take when working together with Mr. O'Bannon, or did you script based on his outline and that was pretty much that, if I may ask?

    (SO excited for this. Was going to plow through the DVD's next month in anticipation as a matter of fact...)

    A question from an interested non-comic book fan: will these be available for purchase online or will I have to seek out a comic book shop?

    Having just finished rewatching the series, I am damn excited about this! Comic books seem to be the new refuge for cancelled-before-their-time series, and I for one, am entirely for it!

    It'll be interesting to see new adventures and our favorite pocket-sized, helium farting Dominar regaining his mantle.

    Thanks for the update, and thanks in advance for a new adventure!
