guide to the Farscape comics

I posted one of these a while ago, but there's been a lot since then, and there are still people who don't know about the Farscape comics, sooooo.....

Updated on 29 May 2013: Until such a time as Henson re-licenses these comics, this is as complete as it's gonna get, sadly.

Updated on 3 June 2014: We're at last getting all of "The War for the Uncharted Territories" in trade paperback!

And there you have it. The individual issues are available at comic stores, and from various online dealers like TFAW. The collections are available at comic shops, bookstores (particularly Barnes & Noble), and online dealers (like Amazon). In addition, I have some issues of the individual comics for sale.
