Take my love Take my land Take me where I cannot stand I don’t care I’m still free You can’t take the sky from me
Après plus de dix ans chez Dark Horse, la franchise Firefly passe chez un autre éditeur. Les comics inspirés par la série télévisée de Joss Whedon (annulée bien trop tôt !) seront maintenant publiés par Boom! Studios.
La première série annoncée sera une préquelle qui s’intéressera dans un premier temps à la rencontre entre Malcolm Reynolds et Zoe Alleyne (incarnés par Nathan Fillion et Gina Torres sur le petit écran) et leurs premières missions pendant la Guerre d’Unification.
Joss Whedon : « It’s high time we got to see the full story of Mal and Zoe’s meeting and mission in the War of Unification – the good and bad that the pressure of war brings out in them, and the unforeseeable consequences. Greg Pak and Dan McDaid are bringing a unique voice to the world of Firefly. It’s an important story for any dedicated browncoat to read, but more importantly, it’s a big gorram adventure. »
Firefly est écrit par Greg Pak (Incredible Hulk) et dessiné par Dan MacDaid (Doctor Who). La publication débutera le 14 novembre.
BOOM! Studios’ Firefly #1 marks the long-awaited return of the crew of the Serenity from the television series Firefly. Firefly, created by Joss Whedon, aired for only one season on Fox from Sept. 20 until Dec. 20 in 2002 but has since gained a massive fan following. A follow-up film, Serenity, was released in 2005.
The upcoming comic series, written by Greg Pak (World War Hulk, Mech Cadet Yu) with art by Dan McDaid (Judge Dredd), will again focus on Mal Reynolds, captain of the Serenity. When a mission goes wrong, Mal finds that his past has caught up with him and a new breed of Alliance terror, the Unificators, are hot on his tail. Whedon serves as a story consultant on the series.

Finally, the crew of the Serenity is back together again, ready to escape this gorram planet and never look back. There’s just one problem—they left their captain behind! Mal’s currently tied up on Boss Moon’s shuttle headed straight for the closest Alliance outpost, where he’ll have to sit trial for his war crimes and most likely hang for his actions during the Unification War.

At the same time, Mal must team up with Boss Moon as they both try to survive the coming firefight against Alliance forces.
