‘The Orville’ gets ‘The Orville Library Edition’ Volume 1 edition

‘The Orville’ comics are getting a library edition this fall.

Dark Horse Comics has been slowly releasing The Orville comics over the last few years and now trade waiters can pick up a new library edition. Set for release October 5th in comic book shops and October 18th in bookstores, the collection houses 280 pages of sci-fi adventures. The series is written by David A. Goodman, penciled by David Cabeza, and colored by Michael Atiyeh.

Don’t miss our interview with The Orville producer and writer David A. Goodman about the series.

All told, the collection has three stories, here’s a breakdown of each one:

In “New Beginnings”, investigation of a century-old distress signal results in Ed and Gordon marooned on a war-ravaged desert planet in the custody of an unknown species. Then, in “The Word of Avis”, seemingly hapless xenoanthropologists lead the Orville into a fight for survival within Krill-controlled territory.

In “Launch Day”, the question of whether a suspicious space construct is a weapon tests the Planetary Union’s peaceful convictions. While in “Heroes”, Talla considers taking matters into her own hands upon discovering an idyllic planet she once surveyed has been subjugated by a hostile alien force.

In “Digressions”, Kelly must unwind an alternate timeline where her refusal to go on a second date with Ed has doomed the galaxy to destruction. And in “Artifacts”, the obsessive pursuit of a lost civilization’s legendary fleet by Ed’s old astro-archeology teacher puts the Orville in grave danger.
