Farscape: Gone and Back #2 & 3

Written by Rockne S. O'Bannon and R.A. DeCandido
Art by Tommy Patterson, Nick Schley, and Juan Castro

This is one title I've come to regret not buying on a monthly basis, but it's not fitting into my already too-generous comics budget. I'm glad to get the chance to catch up with Chrichton, who is still stuck off in his 'unrealized reality', where he has come to accept that he's married to Katralla, and that Zhaan and D'Argo are still alive.

Instead of trying to figure out his way back home, John is instead concerned with finding and meeting Aeryn, who in this reality, has never left the Peacekeepers.

These two issues also shed some light on the identity of the guy with glowing eyes who has been following Moya and her crew for the last couple of series.

The characterization in these issues is excellent - I could practically hear Zhaan's voice, her lines were so perfect. The art is perfectly serviceable, which is about all one can expect from a project of this nature...
