The Expanse is an extremely popular sci-fi TV show that is on my very long list of shows to watch. I’ve heard nothing but awesome things about it. Well, apparently the series is getting a comic miniseries from BOOM! Studios. The four-part miniseries comes from writer Corinna Bechko and artist Alejandro Aragon, and will take place between the fourth and fifth seasons of the show.
THE EXPANSE picks up with Chrisjen Avasarala at the end of the television show’s fourth season. The longtime Secretary-General of the United Nations finds herself dealing with the outcome of the tumultuous elections for her position and far from Earth but not its politics. When Bobbie Draper – a former Martian marine – brings Avasarala intel on an intergalactic black market weapons ring, Avasarala sees a chance to reclaim her political position through a clandestine operation. But as Draper digs deeper into this secret cabal, she soon realizes the threat they pose is far larger – and closer to home – than either of them ever imagined.
Fans can watch the first four seasons of The Expanse now on Amazon Prime Video. The Expanse #1 will be available from local comic shops and digital outlets such as comiXology on December 2. The main cover is courtesy of W. Scott Forbes with variants from Tigh Walker and more.
