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 p

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 twis

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 all...

It 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--mo

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.

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.

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.

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.
