The crew of the Serenity fly again in November, exclusively in monthly comics starting on Friday 16th of November 2018, and time is running out to place your orders so you don’t miss a single thrilling issue!
This is the start of a whole new era as the Firefly ‘verse moves to its new home at comics publisher BOOM! Studios. The story kicks off with an all new prequel telling the details of how Captain Mal and First Mate Zoe first met.
Comics publisher BOOM! Studios and visionary writer and director Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Avengers), join forces to present an all-new era of the pop culture phenomenon Firefly.
One of the most demanded stories in the franchise’s history is revealed in detail for the first time this November, exclusively in comics.
What’s the story?
Captain Mal Reynolds, a soldier who survived being on the losing side of a war against the totalitarian Alliance, will take on any job (legal or otherwise) to keep flying and keep his crew fed.
Find out how this story really began as BOOM! Studios delves into Mal’s past, how he met his first mate Zoe and the real truth about the War of Unification – the intergalactic civil war that divided friend and family alike.
Focusing on family, loyalty, identity, and the price of redemption, writer Greg Pak (Planet Hulk) and artist Dan McDaid (Judge Dredd: Mega City Zero) take you back to the battleground where Mal’s journey began.
You need a standing order
This is a new monthly comics series, there will be a new 22 page pamphlet style comic released each month starting from Friday 16th of November. To read the whole story and not miss a moment you need to get each monthly issue.
Don’t run the risk of missing an issue, set up a standing order right now.
We order comics months in advance and they take time to print and ship to us, if you just drop in on new release day on a whim to grab a hot new title like FIREFLY you might find everyone else has beaten you to it!
We’ll be ordering HEAPS of copies of Firefly, but they will always end up selling out!
Don’t risk it, have us reserve a copy of every new issue for you so you don’t miss out. We put them aside for you to drop in and pick up any time within a month of release, and we also knock 10% off the price for pre-ordering!
Each issue will be $7.90 on the shelf, but only $7.11 for those who have a standing order!
It’s a no brainer.
Do you want all the art?
Comics are a unique way to tell a story. They are stories, and pictures, they are fragile, disposable ephemera, but they are potentially rare collectables. If you want to get serious BOOM! Studios are keen to help you.
Each issue of Firefly will be available with a range of covers.
We do not do standing orders for limited variant comics, they must each be ordered like one off items and sometimes require deposits.
We’ll be getting some variants, stay tuned to our newsletter for the announcement of which variants we expect.
Check out below for a sneaky way to get a bunch of these at once and more exclusives not listed here!
