Dark Horse Launching into Space with "The Orville" Mini-Series

Orville Executive Producer David A. Goodman, artist David Cabeza, and colorist Michael Atiyeh are teaming up to bring to us the comic adaptation of the successful TV science fiction comedy/adventure "The Orville".

The comic series is set in between the first and second season of the tv series thus named "The Orville Season 1.5: New Beginnings" and is going to be consisted of two, two-issue "episodes" closing the gap of the two seasons.

The first episode of the new comic series is titled "The Orville #1: New Beginnins Part 1 (of 2)"

On their way to a fleet conference, Ed and Gordon investigate a distress signal from a century-old buoy belonging to a Union ship. 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” begins with "The Orville #3: The Word of Avis Part 1 (of two)".

The Orville intercept a small Union ship en route to the interstellar territory of the easily aggravated Krill. The passengers, originally thought to be a group of xenoanthropologists, turn out to be much, much more interesting and dangerous than the crew of the Orville could’ve imagined.
