INTERVIEW WITH MARV WOLFMAN
Marv Wolfman, author of the Farscape Comic War Torn, was kind enough to
answer Karlsweb's questions about his work on the comic.
How much of a free hand did you have in choosing the story
material for Farscape: War Torn?
Total. I sent my ideas in and they were accepted. I wanted
to do a story that would be extremely Farscape in concept
but too expensive for the show to do on a TV budget.
Are you a Farscape Fan?
Wolfman: Major league,
and was before I got the job - which I actually lobbied for.
I love the show - got 'em all on tape and now getting
the DVDs. Went to the con here in LA.
What other Farscape comics will you be writing besides
Farscape: War Torn?
I wrote a Chiana two-parter. [The two parter is included in Farscape:
what WildStorm has to say about the book: "John
Crichton and the crew of the Moya arrive in a system featuring two
different civilizations in the midst of a war. The Moya's crew must
tread a delicate path to avoid fanning the flames of the war, while
attempting to gain access to the information that could lead the
travel-weary crew back to their homes."
Farscape: War Torn
is a two issue Prestige Format book from WildStorm
productions, written by Marv Wolfman and illustrated by Robert
Teranishi. Briefly, the story deals with Moya's crew arriving in
a system with two different civilizations at war with each
other: a tropical planet populated by a spiritual society and a
rocky planet inhabited by hard industrious people. The cover
price for this 48 page issue is $5.95.
