Farscape #9

Written by Rockne S. O'Bannon and Keith R.A. DeCandido
Art by Will Sliney

Having recently gotten caught up on this series, and having watched a few episodes from Season 4 again, I think I'm going to need to add this comic to my pull-list.  Some of the earlier story arcs were good, but suffered from the usual curse of the licensed property - substandard art and slighty wonky stories.

With the last couple of arcs, this comic has really come into its own, and this issue, which starts the 'Compulsions' art has all the hallmarks of the best Farscape episodes: strife among the crew (Chiana), strange transformations (Noranti), spiritual awakenings (Aerynn, for a change), a big villain (the Grennij), and Peacekeepers up to no good (Grayza's carrier makes an appearance, even if she's not shown up yet).

Add this to some nice character moments involving the crew of the Cilla, the Leviathan that has joined Moya, and this looks like it would make an epic episode.  Will Sliney's art has improved quite a bit since he came on the title, and this book is really starting to satisfy my craving for new episodes of Farscape.
