bookshelves: comic-book, science-fiction, romance, religion, politics, military, media-tie-in, western

The bridge between TV series and film!

I bought this in its single comic book issues, but I've chosen this TPB edition to make a better overall review.

This TPB edition collects "Serenity: Those Left Behind" #1-3.

Creative Team:

Writers: Joss Whedon & Brett Matthews

Illustrator: Will Conrad


...A ship would bring you work, a gun would help you keep it. A captain's goal was simple: find a crew, find a job, keep flying.

Firefly is one of those TV jewels that they were gone too soon. With just one season, it was unfair that the TV series didn't have a chance to fully stretch its legs... when the eventual movie was out, the fans got thrilled...

...however some of the characters weren't where the fans remembered.

This miniseries show you how and why, those characters came to be in the places that you found them in the movie... the middle of a failed bank heist...

...and an old enemy looking for bloody revenge!!!

You get the characters faithfully portraited, and definitely showing why Malcolm Reynolds is one of the most impressive sci-fi characters, since he's not a bad guy, BUT...

...a saint or a fool ain't he, neither.

This is a fine Firefly tale, leading to the Serenity film, and while it has the limitations of having only three comic book issues to develop it, I think that it was quite adequate told to learn what you wanted to know about the changes met at the beginning of the closure movie.

Where are we going, sir?

The same as always. Forward.
