Farscape Comics Continue To Sell Out

Boom Comics held a panel at WonderCon ’09 this weekend.  Among the things that they talked about, that both issues of the Farscape comic book series have sold out, and that the first issue sold the most copies of any title in their entire history.  They’re also making a second printing of the second issue, which is also a first for them. 

A second series is planned, to be called "Farscape: Strange Detractors", which continues the story from the first series.  They’ve also announced a third series, to be called "Farscape: D’Argo’s Lament", which tells a story about D’Argo and Jool, and is set in between the third and fourth season. 

A preview of the first issue of the first series is now available for those who have iPhones, AND the first issue will be available on iTunes in the very near future, at the low low price of 99 cents. 

Read the details of what was said at the Boom Comics panel here.

I am still of the opinion that reading a Farscape story in comic book form is one of the worst ways to have to take in a Farscape story.  Reading these first two issues has not improved my dislike of comic books in any way.  However, I will concede that getting new canonical Farscape stories even in this format is better than not getting them at all.  I am also very pleased that these issues have been successful, and I believe that this is a positive step for the future of the franchise.  My extreme dislike of this format will not deter me from collecting them and yes, even reading them.
