FARSCAPE #1 sells out in 5 days

Copies Still Available at Comic Shops Nationwide
as BOOM! Studios Evaluates Second Printing

After garnering near unanimous critical acclaim, BOOM! Studios announced today that FARSCAPE #1 is completely sold out.

Fans should keep in mind, while distributor Diamond Comics are completely sold out, Farscape #1 may still be found at direct market retailers across the country. BOOM! Studios is working closely with Diamond Comics Distributors and evaluating the demand for a second printing.

"We are tracking the unfilled re-orders carefully at the moment. But a second printing looks like it may just happen," said Marketing and Sales Director Chip Mosher.

FARSCAPE #1 is written by television series creator Rockne O'Bannon with script by Keith R.A. DeCandido, interior art by Tommy Patterson and cover art by fan-favorites Dennis Calero and Joseph Corroney!

Picking up directly where the television miniseries FARSCAPE: THE PEACEKEEPER WARS left off, fans can look forward to show creator O'Bannon steering their favorite characters into new and original stories, keeping with the existing canon - and then extending it!

Since the release of FARSCAPE #1, critics across the internet have raved:

"FARSCAPE is probably the best TV series made into comics I have seen so far." - Independent Comics Site

"Fans of the TV series should rejoice ..." - Broken Frontier

"...FARSCAPE #1 is everything that made FARSCAPE a cult hit and fan favorite, successfully translated to a new medium." - Watch Farscape

"There's action, sex, exposition, and a bit of humor... Pretty much everything you want in a FARSCAPE episode. Color me happy." - Comixtreme

"...the scenes definitely ring true to the show, even some four years later." - Comic Book Resources

"...for those of you who weren't FARSCAPE fans during the TV series run and don't understand what the buzz is about, this is a perfect opportunity to jump in!" - Comic Related

"It's good. Very good... Strongly recommended." - Dave's Rants

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 from The Jim Henson Company and [HALLMARK] 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 iTunes and DVD.

BOOM! Studios has a limited supply of FARSCAPE #1 A,B & C available on their website on a first come, first serve basis.

Very nice Mihai... I loved that show. It was one of those rare moments on TV before my Internet days that I enjoyed. Farscape was the best sci-fi series to hit the air. Loved it. And now there is a comic book. I bet the really hard core fans would love it.

What a good idea. Farscape will translate superbly to the comic format. I'm not surprised it sold out. Farscape has great characters and an amazing universe. I loved that show. It's hard to believe how something so cool and imaginative ever made it on TV!
