I'm so happy!!!! I'm now an official nerd – or fanboy, if you would prefer. Sunday I received the first of a three part comic book series about Firefly. (it even came in a cool plastic cover – shiny!)
Written by Joss Whedon, Serenity: Better Days #1 is a wonderful comic book based between the end of the Firefly TV series and the movie Serenity. I would tell you more, but I don't want to ruin it for you.
If your mouth is watering, you too can own this piece of history – all for $2.99 (plus shipping and handling). All you need to do is go to this website and order your copy TODAY.
Note that this is an independent rant by the author of this blog with no connections to the above said websites or publishers. The author is just out of his mind.
oh – in the back of comic, there's a nice comment foretelling of another comic book series called The Shepherd’s Tale. This series will be focused on Shepherd Book's life BEFORE Firefly!!! Pretty Shiny!!
One last Firefly titbit – this is the second Firefly comic book series written by Joss. The first one was Serenity: Those Left Behind – written in 2005 (before the movie). I had the previlege of reading this one a few weeks ago and, while not as good as the TV show, it is really good. In fact, it gives you a better lay-of-the-land leading up to the movie.[@more@]
So I was mistaken – there is one more Firefly titbit. I re-discovered a cool Serenity desktop picture at FireflyFans.net.
