DC Launches Digital ‘Fringe’ Comic Tie-In Series ‘Beyond The Fringe’
The last season of Fringe left fans yelling stuff like “Whaaaaaa?!,” meaning the show’s season four kickoff this Friday has been a long time coming. As nice as it will be just to hop back into the show, viewers also have the chance to fill in the gap between seasons with a new digital comic series, Beyond the Fringe, available at DC’s digital storefront and apps for $0.99 a pop. Much the way Fringe has been alternating between different worlds, so too will the new comic. According to DC, “The new series will alternate every two weeks between “A” and “B” storylines for a total of 14 chapters. “A” storylines will explore events tied directly to the Fringe show canon, while “B” storylines will take a “what-if” approach and look at how things might change if certain elements are out of balance.”
Show star Josh Jackson will make his comics debut writing the first three “A” issues, with more creators to be announced. Drew Johnson will be handling covers throughout series.The issues will be dropping bi-weekly through the fall and contain 13-pages each, meaning DC will more or less hold the line at $1.98 for what typically constitutes a single issue comic these days. $13.86 for 182 pages? Not too shabby, provided the story and art satisfies Fringe fans.
This marks DC’s second Fringe comic, following Wildstorm’s 2010′s Tales from the Fringe six-issue miniseries.
