Farscape: Everything You Need To Know About The Comics Before The Movie

fb share tweet share

FarscapeEaster weekend is all about death and resurrection for the Christians of the world, but even the secular Farscape fans had something to celebrate this past weekend. While doing a panel at Wondercon in Anaheim, creator Rockne S. O’Bannon said that a Farscape spinoff movie is indeed in the works. That confirmed rumors from earlier this year, when writer Justin Monjo revealed that he was writing a script for a Farscape movie. A smaller but important element is that it sounds like the events of the Farscape movie will follow those of the BOOM! Studios comics, with the movie picking up many years later, with John and Aeryn’s son D’Argo now 19 years old and all three living in hiding on Earth.

Both O’Bannon and Farscape novelist Keith R. A. DeCandido handled the writing duties on the comics, so it’s no surprise that they’ve got the official stamp as “canon.” However, we realize not every Farscape fan is a comic book fan. Maybe you just want the Cliffs Notes version without having to read through the Farscape comic series and its various spin-offs and tie-ins. Well don’t worry, ‘scapers, we’ve got your back. Here’s everything you need to know about the comics before eventually diving into the newly announced movie.

    Seriously this is getting a feature film? I’m sorry and I know it’s got a cult fanbase but so many other cancelled shows should get a film. For starters Stargate Universe while not a favourite for most it’s worth giving us an ending for closure, or Quantum Leap, or hell Im not gonna name them all but oh and Dark skies would love that to be remade or continued. Anyway my point is and yes I’m a fan of the show but really there are so many other shows that could have gotten this film over Farscape.

      You’re acting like some exec had a list of shows to green light a movie for and he picked your least favorite. Something a lot of people like, including you apparently, is getting a movie and you feel the need to complain that it wasn’t the highest one on your personal list?

      Farscape was better than everything you listed. By a lot.

      I love Quantum Leap, I even like Stargate Universe and wish they hadn’t cancelled it, but seriously, Farscape is one of the best shows in the history of television. It really is. And it never really got its due. A smart studio exec might see unmined potential in that.
