Now get your first look inside Firefly #1, the all-new series revealing the secret Firefly history that fans have demanded for years! New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak (World War Hulk, Mech Cadet Yu) and artist Dan McDaid (Judge Dredd), along with series creator & story consultant Joss Whedon (the visionary writer/director behind Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s The Avengers and more), tell the definitive story of the Unification War, the intergalactic civil war that divided friend and family alike.
“There’s a special kind of magic that makes the best Firefly stories – something that Greg and Dan have perfectly captured in this new series,” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Fans will see new sides of Mal, Zoe and the crew of Serenity as we explore not only what it means to fight a war…but also what it takes to survive one.”
Created by Whedon and set 500 years in the future in the wake of a universal civil war, Firefly centers on the crew of Serenity, a small transport spaceship that doesn’t have a planet to call home. Captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds, a defeated soldier who opposed the unification of the planets by the totalitarian governed Alliance, will undertake any job — legal or not — to stay afloat and keep his crew fed. Thrust together by necessity but staying together out of loyalty, these disparate men and women are seeking adventure and the good life, but face constant challenges on the new frontier, such as avoiding capture by the Alliance and evading the dangers you find on the fringes of the universe.
Mal thought he could outrun his past, but when a simple mission goes wrong, he’s forced to confront it in the form of the Unificators, mercenaries deputized to hunt down war criminals…and they’ve got Mal and Zoe at the top of their list! War can make villains of even the best men, and Mal’s quest for redemption will put him at odds with his own crew, forcing him to make a choice: fix the past or fight for the future.
