With the second season of the TNT sci-fi series Falling Skies returning this June, we've got your first look at the character John Pope (Colin Cunningham) leading a new band of alien-killing outlaws, "The Bersekers." Plus, get details about the Falling Skies digital comic from Dark Horse that bridges the three month gap between the first and second seasons.
The digital comic from Dark Horse, Falling Skies: The Battle of Fitchburg shows the events between seasons of the TNT post-invasion series as members of the Second Mass hole up and attempt to fend off the Skitter threat. The digital comic, which can be found on the Falling Skies comic page, features scripts by Paul Tobin and art by Juan Ferreyra, released in a series of eight-page, biweekly installments.
Additionally, the show is getting an official podcast which launches today on Fallingskies.com. Here's the official synopsis:
In the three months between seasons one and two of Falling Skies, the 2nd Mass has evolved, and a large part of this evolution happened during The Battle of Fitchburg. The Falling Skies digital comic, which launched yesterday, tells the story of this battle where leaders are born and unlikely heroes emerge.
TNT has created the new Falling Skies Podcast that will serve as a companion piece to each chapter of the digital comic from the point of view of renegade leader John Pope (Colin Cunningham). Pope causes a lot of waves during the Battle of Fitchburg and also forms the band of outlaw brothers nicknamed “The Berserkers,” who also star in this seven-episode podcast series. These podcasts tell their side of the story, and the first premieres on Monday.
Falling Skies returns for a second season on June 17th at 9:00 PM EST on TNT.
