April 2009 is a momentous month here in KRADland, as I have, not one, not two, not three, but FOUR comic books being released in this calendar month!

The first came out this past Wednesday: Farscape #4, which concludes the arc entitled "The Beginning of the End of the Beginning," as Rygel takes another shot at his throne while the crew of Moya have to deal with a nasty invader. The status quo does notremain intact at the end of this miniseries. :D Plot by Farscape creator Rockne S. O'Bannon, script by me, art by Tommy Patterson, colors by Andrew Dalhouse, letters by Ed Dukshire, and covers by Joe Corroney (Aeryn) and Dennis Calero (Crichton). BOOM! Studios, $3.99.

Also coming this month is the first issue of the next story arc, Farscape: Strange Detractors #1. The gang heads to a commerce planet to resupply, and things go horribly awry -- 'cause, y'know, duh. Plot again by Rockne, script again by me, colors again by Andrew, letters again by Ed, covers again by Joe (Crichton, Pilot, Aeryn) and Dennis ("Leave it to Rygel"), but art now by Will Sliney. BOOM! Studios, $3.99.

This month also debuts the first side miniseries, Farscape: D'Argo's Lament #1. Flashing back to the third season (between "Revenging Angel" and "Fractures"), this is an adventure of Ka D'Argo, along with Jool, back when both were still alive. Moya needs an exotic substance to survive, and D'Argo and Jool head off in the former's newly tamed Luxan vessel (eventually named Lo'La) to track it down. Written by me all by my lonesome, with art by Neil Edwards, colors and letters by Andrew & Ed, and covers by Michael DiPascale (planet) and Will Sliney (Moya). BOOM! Studios, $3.99.

Finally, we have my first contribution to the new Star Trek comics, also the latest Alien Spotlight one-shot. To no one's surprise, it focuses on the Klingons. "Four thousand throats may be cut in a single night by a running man," goes the old Klingon saying. The Dahar master Kang, at three different points in his life, tells three different stories with that saying as its moral. Written by me, with AMAZING art and color by JK Woodward (he uses a different art style for each of Kang's three tales), letters by Robbie Robins, cover by David A. Williams (with color by Moose Baumann). IDW, $3.99.

With the weather improving, sounds like a good excuse to head over to Newbury Comics.

When are those Farscape books likely to come out in Graphic Novel form?

Our first flashback miniseries will kick off this coming Wednesday, the 29th of April, with BOOM! Studios' release of the first issue of Farscape: D'Argo's Lament #1. Featuring D'Argo and Jool on an adventure between "Revenging Angel" and "Fractures," this miniseries is written by me all by my lonesome (albeit with Unca Rockne looking over my shoulder), with amazing art by Neil Edwards.

Here's a preview......

Ytrehod?  Egrof?  Xocgerg?  Esseret and Kitrap?  (Of the Nedyah Neslein clan, I presume?)  I sense a theme....  (Or should I say, what roT.)

I'm wondering about the reference to a past adventure in which Xocgerg captured Zhaan and Rygel.  Clearly that wasn't from an episode.  Was it in House of Cards or something?

It's from my  short story "Many a Mile to Freedom" in the first issue of the Farscape magazine. I wrote up a "previously on Farscape" bit that a) mentioned the events of "MaMtF" and b) established that this took place in the third season when the crew was split, shortly after "Revenging Angel," but I don't know if that made it into the final comic or not.....
