Serenity #1 Comic Coming In July, Heralding Movie Release

By Rickyjames

Sunday 10 April 2005, by Webmaster

Comics Folks, if you haven’t checked out all the great links in that SciScoop front page left-hand column "Find Serenity Here" box, and particularly ordered the DVD to become a rabid fan of Firefly, my only question is... why not? The sci-fi series that discriminating fans won’t let die is getting ready for its Phoenix-like liftoff with the upcoming July release of Serenity #1. This short-run comic series chronicles the "six month gap" between the final DVD episode "Objects in Space" and Serenity: Big Damn Movie (fans of course understand that whimsical title) coming out September 30.

Order your copy today via the Dark Horse press release: This fall Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and scribe of Marvel’s Astonishing X-Men, makes his big-screen debut as writer/director with Serenity, the big-budget feature follow-up to his cult-hit TV show Firefly—the story of a ship full of mercenaries, outlaws, fugitives, and one law-abiding prostitute running across the fringes of space. Now Whedon pens a three issue miniseries based on the film with Brett Matthews, whose previous credits include Spider-man specials with Daredevil and Wolverine, episodes of TV’s Firefly, an Angel miniseries, and the animated Chronicles of Riddick feature "Dark Fury. "

The crew of Serenity once again find themselves broke and on the wrong side of a number of very large firearms, making the first issue a case study in how to mix intense, Whedon-style character interaction with cinematic action and violence. Artist Will Conrad and colorist Laura Martin paint a rough and wild world of adventure across a strange and dangerous universe.

Each issue of this series features three 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.
