Boom Studios is to Kickstart "Season Six-And-A-Half" of The Expanse later today, with rewards for early backers.

Later today, Boom Studios will be launching a Kickstarter for The Expanse: Dragon Tooth, the new comic book series by Andy Diggle and Christian Ward set between books six, Babylon's Ashes, and seven, Persepolis Rising, of The Expanse, and following where season six of the Syfy and Prime Video TV series left off. Their Day One exclusive bonus item – The Expanse Rocinante Challenge Coin – will be available only for the first 24 hours of the campaign. Boom Studios has a history of using Kickstarter to raise the profile of media-prominent projects, such as Keanu Reeves and Brzrkr.

Boom Studios To Kickstart "Season Six-And-A-Half" Of The Expanse

The Expanse was a series of science fiction novels by James S. A. Corey, the pen name of authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck which was adapted for television by Syfy for three seasons, cancelled and then picked up by Amazon Prime Video for three seasons more.
