Firefly fans have clamored for more tales about Malcolm Reynolds and the gang since Serenity hit theaters in 2005. Several graphic novels have humored browncoats since the film’s release, but none of the comics explored the ‘verse following the events of Serenity. Until now.
Writer Zack Whedon and artist Georges Jeanty have teamed up to create a six-part comics miniseries titled Serenity: Leaves on the Wind. The series picks up nine months post-Serenity with the crew still on the lam, including a very pregnant Zoe.
In an interview with Comic Book Resources, Whedon hinted that the miniseries will strike a darker tone than the TV series. “The life they were leading in the series—taking odd jobs, doing some smuggling here and there—is not one they are able to lead now in the wake of their big throw down with the Alliance. So everything is a bit off balance,” Whedon said.
Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #1 will be released by Dark Horse Comics on January 29.
