FireflyDark Horse Comics’ Serenity - 3 New Cover Illustrations
Sunday 22 May 2005, by Webmaster
Dark Horse (www.darkhorse.com) is giving the Browncoats an exclusive look at the final three covers in the Serenity comic book series. Issue #3 features "River" by Joshua Middleton, "Simon" by Leinil Francis Yu and "Wash" by Sean Phillips.
The plot of the three-issue comic book series centers on the crew members of Serenity, who once again find themselves broke and on the wrong side of a number of very large firearms when a heist goes awry, and some old enemies catch their scent. After facing one failure after another, Malcolm Reynolds becomes the target of a conspiracy between government and mercenary forces, and a tense and divided crew must try to unite behind their compromised leader.
"Working with Joss is always fun and a privilege, and especially so when it’s Serenity," commented co-writer Brett Matthews. " I love the characters and the world so much, how distinct and consistent the vision is and always has been. That sometimes to just keep going is enough, that there’s meaning in the struggle even if you don’t know exactly what that meaning is — that speaks to me, and you get it in Serenity in a way that’s dusty and real and organic, not forced. It just fits. It all just means a hell of a lot to me."
The Serenity comic book miniseries is written by Joss Whedon and Brett Matthews with art by Will Conrad and Laura Martin. Each issue of the series, which takes place in the time between the series Firefly and the movie Serenity, will feature three different covers — one for each member of the Serenity crew, drawn by the biggest names in comics. Issue #1 features "Mal" by John Cassaday, "Inara" by J. G. Jones, and "Jayne" by Bryan Hitch. Issue #2 features "Zoe" by Joe Quesada, "Book" by Tim Bradstreet, and "Kaylee" by Jo Chen. Serenity #1 and #2 are available for preorder now at http://www.darkhorse.com/comics/upcoming.php
