ECCC 2019: The Orville Sets Course For Comics In New Series From Dark Horse

by James Ferguson

Fans of The Orville will soon have more adventures to enjoy as Dark Horse Comics has announced a series of new “episodes” beginning in July. From The Orville Executive Producer / writer David A. Goodman, artist David Cabeza, and colorist Michael Atiyeh have joined forces for The Orville Season 1.5: New Beginnings. There will be two two-issue stories set between the events of the first and second seasons of Seth McFarlane’s TV series from FOX.

The first of these episodes follows Ed and Gordon as they investigate a distress signal from a century-old buoy belonging to a Union ship. Meanwhile, back on the Orville, Kelly tries to mediate when Bortus insists on enrolling Topa into school, despite him being only a few months old.

The second “episode,” called “The World of Avis”, sees the Orville intercept a small Union ship en route to the interstellar territory of the easily aggravated Krill. The passengers were originally thought to be a group of xenoanthropologists. It turns out they’re much more interesting and dangerous than the crew of the Orville could’ve imagined.

The Orville #1: New Beginnings Part 1 (of two) is set for release on July 17th, 2019 and is currently available for pre-order.
