Despite teasing us with a new Broancoat rebellion and an army of River-like assassins to fight, Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #6 wraps up the six-issue mini-series mainly concerned with the planning and execution of breaking Zoe out of an Alliance prison and introducing a dangerous new villain.
The series brings Jayne back onto the ship as well as two new members in Iris (another brainwashed assassin who, at least so far, is less wacky than River but no less deadly) and Bea who seems to have earned a spot on the ship with the halt to her rebellion and the help she provides while rescuing Zoe. How long either sticks around is anyone’s guess.
The only sequence I thought felt out of place was the confrontation between the frehsly-rescued Zoe and the Operative. It’s not that I don’t feel that scene would have taken place, I’m just not quite buying taking place at that particular moment which seems a bit shoehorned into the comi (plus it removes an intriguing character from the fold). Worth a look.
