Chapters will be broken into “A” and “B” sections, with the “A” parts tied into Fringe canon, and the “B” stories acting as a “what if?” Jackson, making his comic book writing debut, will write “Peter and the Machine,” an arc told in the first three “A” issues.

    as I’ve tried to call attention to many times, the first story arc “Peter & The Machine” is now available in print at your local comic book store!

    and now having read it if I may say so it is great. Josh did a great job writing it, kinda weird that he’s writing important pieces of the story, I figured that either they had the story conceptualized and he just wrote the comic book or they gave him some hints as to where to go or something, but either way it’s a good read.

    AND they used my ‘peter in a cage of light’ idea that I fielded for how season 4 was going to open back on fringe bloggers a while ago! so stoked!
