Well, now I have officially passed my 100 posts mark. That went fast. Anyway, BOOM! Studios are just about to release the Farscape 4 ish mini-series in conjunction with the Jim Henson Company, who helped launch the fan fave TV show back in 1998. Also on board is the show’s creator, Rockne O’Bannon and veteran novelist Keith R.A DeCandido, who worked in the Farscape universe in his 2001 book, House of Cards. From BOOM!’s press release, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the sci-fi show:
Debuting on the SCI-FI Channel in 1998, FARSCAPE follows the adventures of astronaut John Crichton, who has a freak accident during an experimental space mission that catapults him across a thousand galaxies to an alien battlefield. Suddenly, he’s trapped among alien creatures wielding deadly technology – a battle that 20th century sci-fi pop culture never prepared him for. Hunted by a merciless military race, Crichton begins his quest for home from a distant galaxy.
A groundbreaking award-winning sci-fi production, FARSCAPE has become a global favorite. Named by TV Guide as one of television’s “Best Cult Shows Ever” and most recently named by EMPIRE Magazine as one of the “50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time,” FARSCAPE is known for the overwhelming fan-based campaign that led to its miniseries production. The show has continued to find new audiences as it airs in syndication and is available on DVD around the world.
Below are the covers for the first two issues.
