USAToday broke the news that made all Fringe and Comic fans weak at the knees – a 6-part Fringe comic book, and that’s not all, it’s going to be a prequel!
The hip media empire of J.J. Abrams (Alias, Lost, Cloverfield, the next Star Trek film) expands into comic books this fall when DC Comics offers a prequel to his upcoming TV series on Fox, Fringe. Writers and artists are being decided, but DC says the comic version will hit the stands on Aug. 27, two weeks before the two-hour premiere airs on Sept. 9.
The 6-part “miniseries” will retail at $2.99, DC Comics has more:
From J.J. Abrams, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the team behind the upcoming film Star Trek, Mission: Impossible III and the hit show Alias, comes Fringe, a new TV series that will thrill, terrify and explore the blurring line between science fiction and reality. The mysteries start here, in a special miniseries leading up to the premiere of Fringe on FOX on September 9!
Personally I can’t wait for this, the show is perfect for the comic medium, and will hopefully provide us fans with a bit more back-story to the show, it’s characters and that freaky fringe-science.
Makes me wonder whether LOST might have had a comic series sooner had JJ stayed at the helm?
