For the first time since Serenity we get a glimpse of life in the Firefly universe after the events of the movie. Picking up several months after Wash‘s death and Mal broadcasting the truth about Miranda and the Reavers to the ‘Verse, Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #1 shows the consequences of those actions. As Serenity has gone into hiding far from the reach of the Alliance, a new movement growing is size and support has risen up against the established authority.
With both new friends and old enemies hunting them, the Firefly’s crew has their own issues to deal with including the birth of Zoe and Wash’s daughter, River taking over as the ship’s primary pilot, and the new romantic relationship between the captain and Inara.
I’ve been waiting for the future of Serenity to be explored, and things get off to a good start here. Penned by Joss Whedon with art by longtime Buffy artist Georges Jeanty that captures the right look of the ship and her crew, I can’t wait to see where the six-issue mini-series goes from here. Worth a look.
