BURBANK, Calif. (September 21, 2011) - Just in time for the start of its fourth season on September 23, critically acclaimed TV show FRINGE http://www.fox.com/fringe  (Fridays 9/8c on FOX) debuted today a new digital comic series "Beyond the Fringe." Created by DC Entertainment, written with series star Josh Jackson and featuring cover art by Drew Johnson, the first arc of "Beyond the Fringe" will explore key events that take place between seasons three and four on the show and will also explore a series of "what if" alternative scenarios.

"We received a great response from fans to previous 'Fringe' comics, and I'm especially excited to see their reaction to 'Beyond the Fringe' as we further integrate the story into the mythos of the show. And of course, we're thrilled to be working with Josh Jackson in his debut as a comic book writer," stated Hank Kanalz, senior vice president of digital for DC Entertainment.

The new series will alternate every two weeks between "A" and "B" storylines for a total of 14 chapters.  "A" storylines will explore events tied directly to the "Fringe" show canon, while "B" storylines will take a "what-if" approach and look at how things might change if certain elements are out of balance.  "Fringe" star Josh Jackson is on board to write "Peter and the Machine," an arc comprising the first three "A" issues and which will detail events that take place in the timeline between what viewers saw happen at the end of season three, and the start of season four.

"Beyond the Fringe" is the third comic series based on the popular drama. New issues of "Beyond the Fringe" will be released every two weeks this fall at $.99 per download.  Issue #1 is available for download today online at read.dccomics.com <https://read.dccomics.com/comixology/#/dc_universe>  or on mobile devices through the DC Comics app.

Awesome! I was hoping for more Fringe comics. But one about Peter and written by Josh? My geek-heart is about to explode. *orders*

Wait... so is this digital only? I don't do digital comics.

dana said...

okay, so I'm new to the whole digital comic idea, did anyone buy this? How/when do I get my comic?

1. You need to set up a free Comixology account.
2. Add the BTF comic to you cart then check out.
3. Log-in to Comixology, and look under "My Comics", and you can read the comic there.

There are also free Comixology apps for iPhone/iPad/Android that you can use to read the comic as well. Works pretty well, even on a 4" screen.

I am on the first page and there is line that is very similar to the one Peter said in the alternate version of the speech in The day we died.

Well I am no comic expert, but I quite liked it.

I live in France but I tried to set up an account anyway but it won't let me buy help. :(

I don't think I'd have a problem with 'digital' comics if the would make available on Amazon and ITunes but signing up for another service, please, too much.

The question should be "When is Peter Bishop?"
