The best Books Farscape: Scorpius Vol. 1 I got a copy of this from BEA years ago. I was a huge fan of the Farscape Sci-Fi series when it was on and was curious to see what this Scorpius graphic novel spin-off would bring. I finally sat down and read through it, it was a quick read and honestly a bit disappointing. The graphic novel starts with Scorpius abandoned on an ice world. We get some flashbacks to his past, that were a bit confusing because they aren’t marked as such. Then suddenly a huge armada of aliens land on his abandoned planet (why we will never know) and Scorpius manages to worm his way onto their ship and eventually take command of it. This whole graphic novel is just okay. The illustration is okay but a bit unfinished looking. It is in full color which I like, but the color is blocky and unfinished looking. The story is a bit ludicrous. An alien armada just happens to stop at the extremely remote planet Scorpius is stranded on. And of course the aliens are stupid enough to go with whatever Scorpius says and let him take control of the ship. It had me rolling my eyes and just seemed very contrived.The only good thing about this graphic novel is that you do get to see some about Scorpius’s past; however it’s not very clear that you are reading about his past until pretty far into the graphic novel. A nice little notation of something like “many years ago on planet wherever” would have helped clear up this confusion immensely.Overall a bit disappointing. It was good to look into Scorpius’s past but this graphic novel is plagued by poor illustration and a contrived (almost silly) plot. Add to the that confusing jumps in time and it really wasn’t entertaining or fun to read. I guess I’ll just have to rewatch all the Sci-Fi seasons of Farscape to get my Scorpius fix in the future.

  2. To start things off, this takes place after Rigel recovers his crown on Hyneria and banishes Scorpius from Hynerian space Things pick up some time later to find Scorpius has crashed on a frozen wasteland with little hope of rescue His behavior is textbook Scorpius that is to say, it s insane and maniacal Interspersed throughout are flashbacks to his time with the Scarrans and Peacekeepers, recounting lessons he learned and puts to use in his present predicament.There s some interesting twists th [...]


  3. I ve always loved Scorpius as a character I m fairly certain he is my favorite villain of all time if he is a villain at allIt was really interesting to see how he went from being banished from Hyneria, to leading part of the attack on the Uncharted Territories for the Kkore In the main arc of the Farscape comics this transition isn t explained, and you re left to wonder what schemes he orchestrated in order to survive In this comic you learn about his journey, and it s very well done complex a [...]


  4. I re read all of these in the summer while blitzkrieging for a game I still find myself feeling about the same for the Farscape franchize comics graphic novels as I ever did They are sometimes well written, but the art is really sad because I just love the show and actors so much Some of the stories meander too much, and Aeryn s ending still gets to me in a way where I don t absolutely agree that s where she should have ended up But it was a fun summer reread.


  5. I ve always been a huge fan of Farscape, and I always thought Scorpius was one of the better characters on the show This fills in some of his back story while also adding a new threat to the Farscape franchise As always it s awesome to see Scorpius scheme and turn a defeat like being stranded on an ice planet into a victory.


  6. After being banished from Hyneria and getting stuck on an ice planet, Scorpius uses an unexpected discovery to get right back into scheming and planning which is always fun to see These stories tie in with the ongoing regular Farscape graphic novels series and add some interesting background for it.



  7. Well written and well drawn, it s great to get a story where one of the greatest characters in sci fi gets to take center stage I really dug the cinematic quality of the opening sequence, too.
