Farscape Reviews.

Apologies for the neglected blog of late. I've been working on a fair amount of stuff that cant be shown. That should all change soon enough but before then I think I'll post up some pieces on my process and other things like that.
To start off heres a particularly nice review of all the Farscape issues that have gone on so far

Heres the piece about Strange Detractors


The third series is called Strange Detractors. It was written by Rockne O’Bannon and illustrated by Will Sliney. I am finding this truly enjoyable. Strange Detractors picks up some time after the first Farscape story ends. It begins with one of John’s famous altered reality dreams in which he deals with his anxiety over doing what’s right for his family. He has all these plans for their future, but you know how John’s plans tend to go. When visiting a commerce planet, things suddenly go very wrong. O’Bannon has captured the characters in dialogue and actions just as surely as Sliney has captured their images. Sliney has great characterizations; even with minimal detail he captures them well. He’s nailed their expressions, body language and proportions. His backgrounds are balanced and don’t seem too full, noisy or blank. The final issue of Strange Detractors isn’t out yet but I am eagerly awaiting it, as well as the next series titled Gone and Back.
