You can’t take the sky from them! BOOM! Studios acquires licensing for Joss Whedon’s Firefly and announces a new Firefly prequel comic.
BOOM! Studios have acquired the licensing for Joss Whedon’s short-lived sci-fi western series Firefly, they revealed today, along with the news that they will be publishing a Firefly prequel series detailing the story of the Unification War, an intergalactic civil war that serves as a large part of the backstory of the Firefly universe.
Written by New York Times best-selling author Greg Pak (Incredible Hercules, Battlestar Galactica) with art by Dan McDaid (Jersey Gods, Judge Dredd), the series will debut in November 2019 with Firefly #1, taking fans new and old alike back to the battleground where the story all began, and revealing a history that might end it all!
“It’s high time we got to see the full story of Mal and Zoe’s meeting and mission in the War of Unification—the good and bad that the pressure of war brings out in them, and the unforeseeable consequences,” said Joss Whedon, who will be serving as story consultant on the series. “Greg Pak and Dan McDaid are bringing a unique voice to the world of Firefly. It’s an important story for any dedicated Browncoat to read, but more importantly, it’s a big gorram adventure.”
Firefly #1 will be available exclusively in comic shops on November 14, 2018 with a main cover by superstar Lee Garbett (Skyward), along with variant covers by Jock (Detective Comics), J.G. Jones (Marvel Boy), Bill Sienkiewicz (New Mutants), Joe Quinones (Black Canary and Zatanna: Bloodspell) and more!
Also arriving in stores on November 14th is Firefly: Legacy Edition Book One which collects previously released Serenity comics for the first time under one cover in a new value-priced format as Mal & the crew ride again in these official sequels to the critically acclaimed Firefly television series and Serenity film.
Along with these books, BOOM! Studios is also planning on releasing limited series, original graphic novels and more that officially expand the rich Firefly/Serenity mythology created in television, film, and beyond in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.
As always, we’ll be watching!
