I'll start things off with my final recommendation: if you're a Farscape fan, you owe it to yourself to pick this up. For people who like scifi - it's also a great read, although the ending falls a little flat.

This is a story told in flashbacks - the 'present time' is during the TV series, during a short period when D'Argo leaves Moya and her crew. We get to discover how he met his wife, and, in excruciating detail, how he came to be on Moya.

It was good to finally have this story told - we had h
In the series fans only got very short glimpses of D'argos life with his Sebacean wife. This is the story how he and Lo'Laan met, after he had been hospitalized after battle. He has to leave the Luxan army, they fall in love and try to built a life as farmers on a Sebeacan planet.

Of course, all this leads up to the story that was already shown on TV: Lo'Laan is killed and D'Argo is framed and imprissoned for her murder.

The art is very beautiful and vibrant, D'Argo is very in character, but all i
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.
It's always great to get backstory, and what's even better is when it's "official" backstory. So in that regard, and because Farscape can really do no wrong, I enjoyed this. I just really really really wish they would throw DeCandido out the window, because he is a terrible terrible writer. The "narration" parts being in the second person was stupid and smacked more of Choose Your Own Adventure than the best science fiction series ever.

On a quest to find his wife, Lo'Lann's murderer, we learn about what happened to D'Argo through a series of flashbacks: how they met and fell in love, the prejudice they experienced, the birth of their son Jothi, Lo'Lann's brother's hatred of the whole thing, the murder, the escape of Jothi and the framing and trial of D'Argo for the murder.
I read the individual comic books, not the TPB, after all 4 were released.

This is an excellent comic series from Boom!Studios and written by the creators of the TV series. All the stories are considered to be official canon and deal with Ka D'Argo's backstory prior to being imprisoned on Moya.
