I just found this big, really cool article:

WHEDON'S COMIC BOOK SERENITY
In a quick word in this week’s issue of Newsweek, (online here) the announcement was made that Joss Whedon will return to his own properties in comics this summer with a prequel to Serenity, Whedon’s upcoming feature film based on his cancelled TV series Firefly, set 500 years in the future.

From the original Universal press release on the film:

The Serenity cast will include such returning Firefly cast members as Nathan Fillion as Captain Malcolm 'Mal' Reynolds, Gina Torres as Zoe Warren, Morena Baccarin as Inara Serra, Jewel Staite as Kaylee Frye, Adam Baldwin as Jayne Cobb, Sean Maher as Dr. Simon Tam and Summer Glau as River Tam.

The film centers around Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran (on the losing side) of a galactic civil war, who now ekes out a living pulling off small crimes and transport-for-hire aboard his ship, "Serenity." He leads a small, eclectic crew who are the closest thing he has left to family - squabbling, insubordinate and undyingly loyal.

When Mal takes on two new passengers -- a young doctor and his unstable, telepathic sister -- he gets much more than he bargained for. The pair are fugitives from the coalition dominating the universe, who will stop at nothing to reclaim the girl. The crew that was once used to skimming the outskirts of the galaxy unnoticed find themselves caught between the unstoppable military force of the Universal Alliance and the horrific, cannibalistic fury of the Reavers, savages who roam the very edge of space. Hunted by vastly different enemies, they begin to discover that the greatest danger to them may be on board "Serenity" herself.

Dark Horse Comics confirmed for Newsarama that they will be publishing the three-issue prequel, written by Whedon and Brett Matthews (a Firefly writer and former comics collaborator with Whedon), with art by Will Conrad. Issue #1 is due in July.

Serenity is due in theaters on September 30th.

AND,






That first cover looks amazing!@!

No it can't. Man, I can't wait to get my hands on this.

3 issues though, sounds like they're being cautious.

It's a mini, not an ongoing series.

Whoops, yeah, forgot to include those. Thanks.

A mini is nice, but I'm hoping that they'll do some more after the movie. Not too many, but enough to give us some more Firefly stuff.

JOSS JUST POSTED THIS(WITHIN THE HOUR)ON WHEDONESQUE!!!!!!!!!----


Hey, It's me -- or an incredible simulation! Still recovering from that intense Wondercon experience I had in the near future. And that fun announcement about the Serenity comic that I made... if you're a comic book geek such as my own self, you were SO psyched. If you're not, you dozed off. But I definitely have something up my sleeve... it's an arm! a hideous arm! Get it off me!

It did say "cast will include such returning Firefly cast members as"... so I bet wash and book will still appear.

I liked the part describing the crew - "squabbling, insubordinate and undyingly loyal" ... describes the fanbase here pretty well too.

Let's squabble!

It will be shiny, especially when Joss put his hideous and possibly evil hand to work.

Sincerly can't wait till the Big Damn Movie's released.

Slight update: At WonderCon today, Joss announced that each of the three issues will have three variant covers -- for a total of nine different covers, one for each member of the Serenity "Family."

I don't usually go for the variant cover stuff, but this sounds pretty shiny to me.

Wow, that is great thinking. I can't wait to get my grubby hands on them. Anyone know what other comics Will Conrad has drawn? He's a great artist.

Gotta catch em all!

I'm guessing you can't order one of each different cover specifically huh?

Now I'm going to have to find out where comicbooks are sold. Argh!

I don't know what country you're in, Zeek. But comic books are sold in Barnes & Noble and Borders Books stores here in the states. There are also stores that specialize in comic books, but I don't know any of those.

I can already hear Jewel...." Did Kaylee look that fat to you? Kaylee wasn't that fat!" Yeah, I think Comic Kaylee looks a tad more round in the face than need be.

Now that I look at it more, doesn't Serenity look different in the drawing? She's not the same ship! The cockpit deck is straight out from the rest of the ship, instead of having that 45 degree angle slant that makes her look like a bird. Whats up w/ DAT ?

Maybe they decided to fix one of the show's minor inconsistancies. That is, the steep angle of the neck on the exterior model of Serenity does not match the low angle of the interior sets. :)
