I didnt expect to like this as much as I did. Its like a continuation of the show. Even feels like an episode. Defintely reccomend for fans

If you're anything like me, you loved the Firefly television series and cried when it was cancelled after one season. Fear not! Greg Pak and Boom! have brought it back to life.

The first issue transported me back to the Serenity, and took me on another adventure with Mal and the crew. They've landed themselves in hot water, but that's nothing new! I enjoy seeing how they get themselves out of endless bad situations.

Wash and Zoe are as adorable has ever! I laughed when Wash was playing with dinosa

Great start to the comic series, fans of serenity/firefly will be very happy with this, drama straight away as serenity is on fire, due to a sub-quality part, due to a cash problem after jayne blew 15 platinium at a gaming table, sets the tone of firefly perfectly....... can't wait for the following comics in the series. ...more

I can’t believe Firefly is back! Okay, I actually totally can believe it, but you know what I mean. I’ve read every graphic novel series that has come out and it never quite feels like enough. But then again, that’s usually the case when a show gets cancelled after one season (I always fall in love with the shows that don’t get renewed, I swear).
There are a few constants about this series, many of which lend to the personality that shines so brightly through in this series. One is that Firefl

Firefly is an incredible story, and fans across the 'Verse understand the torture that is only one season of such an amazing television show. So any opportunity to dive back into that world and have adventures alongside Mal, Wash, Jane and the rest is one a true Browncoat just can't miss.

This new Firefly series is just such an opportunity, and allows fans (new and old alike) to meet old friends and make some new ones while enjoying new creative talents that are putting their own (Joss Wedon app

OK, this actually really surprised me. I've been reading the Firefly comics since day one and not one of them has really captured the show. Until now! This takes us back into the series, before the movie, thankfully, and is telling a whole new story about the Unification War. The writing is spot on, the art, it's interesting and dynamic, and I'm actually looking forward to the next issue. ...more

And instantly we're back with Firefly.
A good setup, Mal haunted by the war and the snippyness of the crew are all here. A new world to learn about in the 'verse and secrets of the past to be found out.
Bring it on.

I forgot how much fun this universe is. Great first issue for this new series, with fantastic art and colors. Really captured the feel of the characters and the show. Looking forward to more of this!

Sold from page 1, this comic keeps the spirit of the show, and promises to tell us more about how Mal and Zoë met!

Nová komiksová série Firefly, publikovaná mladým vydavatelstvím Boom Studios (patřícím přímo Foxu), má za sebou první čtyřdílný příběhový úsek, a je tedy nejvyšší čas podívat se jí na zoubek. Komiks se odehrává mezi seriálem a filmem (po epizodě Objects in Space), což na jednu stranu znamená, že v něm vystupují všichni naši oblíbení hrdinové, na druhou stranu to s sebou přináší jistá omezení, protože zkrátka a dobře víme, "jak to bylo dál" - nejen díky filmu Serenity, ale i díky dřívějším komiks ...more

This is fun! I read it on my phone using hoopla. The images were so crisp. I really liked the story and artwork. I'm going to catch up with the rest on hoopla and decide if I want this in my pull list. ...more

I love firefly. A series that was much too short. So I've watched the series, the movie, and I'm reading the books. Now the graphic novels. I'll take it any way I can get it. ...more

This is a space comic, not my cup of tea. The comedy was meh. They joked about diying way to often, making it difficult to relate.

boring besides that ending arc. the characters are too OP and the action scenes/drawing were poor
Dec 06, 2020 rated it really liked it
So happy to be back in the verse I love so much and seeing the whole crew again was amazing, a must read for fans of the show.
Not a big fan of the drawing style (characters seem a bit static and chunkily proportioned) but it does read like another episode of Firefly, with entertaining dialogue and interactions that feel true to the series. The quick flashbacks thus far are too brief to really give us much, but looking forward to more!

Short graphic novel (better read as paperback than ebook!) with the crew of Firefly. I never did watch the series, but I did see the movie. This has a good plot, and I enjoyed seeing the characters in action again.
