Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and scribe of Marvel's Astonishing X-Men , unveils a previously unknown chapter in the lives of his favorite band of space brigands in this comics prequel of the Serenity feature film#65533;the big-budget follow-up to Whedon's cult-hit TV show Firefly .

Penned by Whedon and Brett Matthews, who wrote several episodes of Firefly as well as Dark Horse's final Angel comics series and the animated Chronicles of Riddick feature "Dark Fury," Serenity follows a ship full of mercenaries, fugitives, and one law-abiding prostitute in their pursuit for fast cash and a little peace along the fringes of space. The ragtag crew of Serenity take on a scavenger mission with the hopes of earning enough dough to disappear for a while. Only too late do they realize the whole gig is orchestrated by an old enemy eager to remake their acquainitance with the help of some covert-operatives known only as the Blue Gloves.

Artist Will Conrad (Marvel's Elektra and Witches ) and colorist Laura Martin ( Astonishing X-Men and The Ultimates ) paint a rough and wild world of adventure across a strange and dangerous universe, in this not-to-be-missed tale straight from the brain of pop-culture mastermind Joss Whedon!

Part of the Graphic Novel Shopping Guide for Perplexed Parents of Tweens and Teens, Nov 2013 (for teens who discovered the cult-hit sci-fi series about cowboy smugglers in space and were just as bummed as we were when the series was prematurely cancelled)

Same book as Serenity -
Firefly Class 03-K64. [1], Those Left Behind (https://ottawa.bibliocommons.com/item/show/514676026_serenity) but with smaller pages and no bonus material. I preferred the larger pages of the other edition.

Seemed really short, but worth read if you were into the series.

A very good story that helps explain the gap between the show and the movie.

This was just like an episode of firefly. Which of course means I really liked it. The dialogue is pure Firefly. The story and action are decent and the artwork is good. I am looking forward to reading more of this series. Anyone who loved the tv series would enjoy the comic.

Nice missing episode of Firefly that finds Mal and his crew hitting a big score, and then dreaming about how to spend it. Until they are visited by ghosts of the past bent on revenge.

Interesting to follow the Firefly gang from the screen into this graphic novel. So far it seems to be a good transition.
