MILWAUKIE, Ore., (May 4, 2022)—From Executive Producer David A. Goodman (The Orville, Family Guy, Star Trek Enterprise), and Dark Horse Comics comes The Orville Library Edition Volume 1. Penciled and inked by David Cabeza and colored by Michael Atiyeh, this edition chronicles six missions from The Orville comics. These stories take place between the first and third seasons and take the Orville starship into the unknown, and sometimes, directly into the line of fire!
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.
The Orville Library Edition Volume 1 is presented in an oversized, hardcover edition, contains 280 pages, and will be available at comic stores October 5, 2022 and in bookstores October 18, 2022. It is available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop and bookstore. The Orville Library Edition Volume 1 will retail for $49.99.
