Farscape: D'Argo's Trial #2

Written by Keith R.A. DeCandido
Art by Caleb Cleveland

Continuing with my attempts to catch up with the Farscape comics, I snatched up the second issue in the second D'Argo mini-series. This issue details Jothee's birth, and all of its surrounding events, up until the death of Lolann. A few pages here are simply retreads of things shown in the show - the episode where D'Argo finally confronts Macton in particular, but in this setting, they are shown with more context and chronology, adding emotional weight to them.

This title lacks much of the humour of the tv show or the main title, but given the subject matter, that seems quite appropriate. Cleveland continues to be the best of the Farscape artists - faithful to general appearances, but not afraid to add his own artistic flourishes.
