Firefly"Serenity : Better Days" Comic Book - Issue 1 - Fractalmatter.com Review
Tuesday 11 March 2008, by Webmaster
Joss Whedon’s ongoing saga of space pirates returns to comics in a new miniseries from Dark Horse Comics. Whedon with returning Co Writer Brett Matthews and artist Will Conrad delivers a very amusing twist on the Serenity story by telling an earlier adventure of Captain Mal Reynolds and his rag tag crew as they pull off a heist that just might work.
Serenity Better Days
The beauty of Whedon’s work is that itserves really well as an untold story of his TV series Firefly and can serve as another prelude tale to the Serenity movie. What is truly shiny about this miniseries is that Better Days actually feels and sounds like an episode of Firefly. The story involves a robbery scheme that is well layered and with this robbery on top of a robbery, complications involving clients having no money comes into play so then we see more theft and the scenes itself work well because the characters are familiar to the fans who love them. Kaylee is still pining for Wash, Inara deals with a guy with some anger issues, and Jayne continues to be amazed when he is unable to make something blow up. The only comment that can be said is that there is not enough River so far, buy that is just this reviewer being particular. If it was not for flipping the pages of the book, this felt like another story to the filmed part of the Serenity saga.
