Beyond The Fringe
So is it just me, or does anyone else think that without reading the new "Beyond The Fringe" comics, you basically end up missing out on a lot of important facts? After seeing the latest episode of Fringe, it's looking more clear now that unless all of the comic content is somehow going to show up in the series, anyone not reading the comics will only receive half the story.
The 7 issue comic series 3 of which are already out, covers quite a load of facts that can change one's view of the storyline entirely. Joshua Jackson, who portrays "Peter Bishop" in the series, is apparently writing the comics, and so far he has done an amazing job with them. Out of the 3 sets of Fringe comics that exist up to now, this one is by far the most thrilling to read. The issues are complex, exciting and very well plotted. There are tons of twists and tangles to keep your mind wondering for a good while.
Each issue is divided to 2 sub-issues, where "A" is usually following the main story line and "B" is mostly "what if"s and alternate possibilities. 3A is currently the last issue out, and I can't wait to read the next one.
