We had an opportunity to ask FRINGE star Josh Jackson a few questions about his role as a writer on the new digital comic series BEYOND THE FRINGE, here’s what he had to say:
THE SOURCE: How did you get involved with this project?
JOSH JACKSON: I’m not sure who above my pay grade made the choice to ask me but, I was brought in when our producers where looking for writers for the new run of Fringe comics.
TS: Are you a big comics reader or fan?
JJ: Like just about every guy my age comics were a huge part of growing up. I have probably spent thousands of hours debating ‘who would win’ and ‘which powers kick ass more’ But lately I tend to read longer form graphic novels.
TS: What has it been like for you to write a comic, do you enjoy the process?
JJ: Writing in comic form is totally different from standard script writing. Thankfully I had a couple helpers to get me used to writing panel by panel instead of scene by scene.
TS: What can we expect from “Beyond the Fringe”?
JJ: From my portion of it, I hope that it will fill in a piece of Peters’ story in a satisfying way.
TS: How does the comic tie to season four of the show?
JJ: You’ll have to read ‘em and find out!
