NYCC 2013: SERENITY Returns at Dark Horse

Zack Whedon to write the canonical follow up to the movie.

Dark Horse released some more great news today. SERENITY is returning. The series will continue the story directly following the events from the film and creator Joss Whedon will act as the executive producer.

“We've been dying to get more Serenity out ever since the book Joss and Zack wrote. We all loved Zack's work on Shepherd's Tale, and couldn't wait to get him back into the mix. This story is the first giant step past the film, after the big damn heroes stuck a big middle finger in the face of the Alliance,” notes Editor in Chief Scott Allie, “Zack establishes new ground rules for these characters. He nails the voices, takes the relationships to the next level, and just gives us all the best space romp since the film Joss made …”

The series will feature art by Georges Jeanty (BUFFY SEASON 8 & 9), covers by Dan Dos Santos and script by Zack Whedon.

Malcolm Reynolds’s crew shook the ’verse to its core when they laid bare the crimes against humanity undertaken by their sinister government—the Alliance. Always outlaws, Mal, a very pregnant Zoe, new pilot River Tam, and the other surviving crew members are in greater danger than ever, and everyone’s asking the same question . . .

Serenity: Firefly Class 03-K64—Leaves on the Wind #1 (of 6) is on sale January 29.

I've heard that the other Firefly books are iffy at best. As much as I love the show/movie, can't say I'm immediately on board with continuing stories in comic book form.

The Firefly comics had limited range to work within, to be fair. They couldn't really have much significant character stuff, because they couldn't progress the characters past where they are in the beginning of Serenity. This taking place after Serenity opens the door for some much more creative things to happen.

Hopefully Mal and Inara actually make something of themselves. After a season and a movie of dancing around each other, neither they nor their fans will be able to take much more of the sexual tension. Even the doctor and the mechanic eventually got together for God's sake

And River is back! Badass FTW!!!

@v_scarlotte_rose: Look at the ARM. His elbow starts so far up his arm, and his forearm is so long.
