How The Expanse: Dragon Tooth is Filling in the Blanks
The Expanse: Dragon Tooth will be arriving to audiences after shattering BOOM’s Kickstarter record, both picking up where the television show’s final season left off, in addition to taking place before the events of the seventh novel of the book series. The story promising to fill in a gap of information that at one point was deemed to be long lost to the fans until now.
The Significance of the Upcoming Comic Series
It was just over a year ago that The Expanse’s sixth and final season aired, leaving unanswered questions for its viewers to linger on. This comic series finally presents the long-awaited opportunity to answer many of those questions. For many, the series finale of the show was satisfying, providing a heartwrenching crescendo to cap off more than half of a decade’s worth of investment from audiences, but there was still an issue of questions left unanswered, specifically when it comes to what happened in that gap of time.
To answer these questions not only opens the door to provide clarity for fans, but also opens the door for future stories to be told. After all, the record-shattering success of the aforementioned Kickstarter campaign proves fans still have a desire to see more of this story featuring their favorite characters. If they have this much desire to see the story continued after only a year away, then the success of the series as it releases all but guarantees the story will continue after Dragon Tooth.
The Expanse: Dragon Tooth hits comic book stores and digital services starting April 19, 2023.
