According to both Darkhorse.com and my local comic shop, the second Serenity comic was shipped out today. I'm going to pick mine up this afternoon. Sorry if someone else has already posted this, but I thought it should be known. Kinda sneaked up on me I know it. Anyway, two of three. Book looks perfect on the cover. Buy it! Read it! Love it! *ahem* yeah.

Yep, just got mine. I really hope they keep this up. In other words, another series of comics between the movies.

HELL'S KITTEN


Yep, got mine today! I liked it a lot more than the first one. I even brought it in to work with me to get translations . I don't know the page numbers, but here they are in order, starting with Mal's rather long phrase:

1. no work, boring, not a job (or something along those lines; it's a rough translation cuz my co-worker doesn't speak English very well yet)
2. f**k (according to my co-worker, this is a relatively new word created in the last 10 years or so)
3. whoops! (again, something along those lines; this is a phrase specific to Shanghai, so it might not translate well if the translator isn't from Shanghai)

Oh, and on the cover written behind the author / artist names is something like "exciting!".
I'm sure someone else will be able to post better translations, but this should give you the general idea.

Cheers.

Gorramit! Just called my local shop and they said it'd be another week before it shows. Think the guy didn't know what he's talkin' about, so I'll swing by there during lunch tomorrow.

Yep, picked mines up earlier today. Liked it better than Issue #1. Although, River's voice seemed a bit off in one panel near the end. All in all, great read. Here's hoping for a regular comic series after the movie makes its mark to keep us occupied til Serenity 2 rolls on out.

Mal: You wanna run this ship?

Yep, I picked up my copies of first and second issues at the comic book store. I asked if it was doing well and she was thrilled it was doing well. The owner said she has 33 people getting copies.

Got mine... I only get one cover, so I chose the Kaylee cover (drawn by Runaways cover artist Jo Chen), cause it's the shiniest.

The issue wasn't bad, but I still have a feeling that the comic as a whole aren't what they should be.

Did anyone else think of the old addage "never bring a knife to a gunfight" when they got to the part where

badger's henchmen approached Serenity menacingly armed only with a knife, nun-chucks, a quarterstaff, and one gun (still in shoulder holster) respectively? Why'd they need the surprise gas, they could have just gunned 'em down any time...

Got mine! Way better than the first issue.
The question is, for each issue:

What cover is your favorite?

For me so far it is Mal on issue 1 and Zoe on issue 2.
I love the artist from Runaways, but I think that Kaylee looks not quite right to me. The right energy, but it's something subtle about the face. Maybe Jewel's incandescent beauty is difficult to capture in mere drawings?

I got mine today, but I took the last copies at my local store (they promised to order more for Serenity #3).
BUT if anyone is still looking for #1 or #2 it turns out that Midtowncomics in NYC has plenty of copies and will ship:
http://www.midtowncomics.com/
of course they don't have #1 in the Mal cover...
and they have run out of #2 in Kaylee cover already...
but still, lots of all the other covers!

My favorites are:
Mal, Jayne, Kaylee, Book, River, and Wash...
I don't really like Zoe or Simon
(I just don't think those do them justice)
and the only one I really hate is Inara,
I don't think the artist 'got' Inara at all!
He draws her like a gorrum belly dancer.

Ha! Went down to the comic shop I called during lunch and they'd just gotten the shipment. Almost settled on the Book cover when he pulled Kaylee out of the stack! YEAH!

Ashamed to admit I completely forgot about this yesterday (even though I was thinking about it the day before...).

But I went by the shop today and picked up a copy. For #1 they had a big stack of each cover, this time I only saw one stack of the Book cover [but they /might/ have sold out of the other two :].

I wanted Kaylee, but the Book cover is very nice so I'm happy.

Now, if I don't get a River cover next month, though.....

Now I'm just pissed. This is the second time in two days that I've been unable to pick up my comic book due to being called in for work, just when I was heading out the door to go to the shop. GRRRRR!!!! I must not fail tomorrow!

Oddly enough, I dropped the hint we had a few weeks ago - that the Blue Hand guys would team up with someone else from the show - to a friend of mine. He guessed it right away.

I saw the preview pages that went up a few weeks ago, so I knew that one was coming. I was, however...

That's supposed to be DOBSON??!!?? Wow crappy drawing! (or crappy eyesight) I recognised the name, but the the way he's drawn makes him look a little like Mal.
Confusing to the extreme.
I also agree with whoever said that Rivers voice was a bit off towards the end.. If we're thinking of the same panel.. well I was convinced that it was a Jayne-ism ("It smells like crotch") maybe Rivers been hanging out with Jayne too much.

Shiny comic though!
I want my movie!!!!

I was on my way to the futon shop today when I noticed a comic book store just across the street. I went in on the off chance that I could get a copy of the first one, and not only did I get ALL 3 covers of the first one, I got all 3 covers of the second one--and all at cover price! The guy had sold out of the first one, but he gave me his copies. HIS OWN COPIES. I cannot believe what I wonderful experience I had for my very first time in a comic book store.

Throwing in my two cents on #2. I picked up all three from the wonderful comic store Emerald City here in St. Pete. They set both #1 and #2 aside for me and called me to let me know they were in. Sorry I digress, but after Nathan's rant about the comic jerk where he went, I wanted to point out I had no problems.

I admit I haven't read this whole thread, so I apologize for the repeat, if any. The Kaylee cover was NOT flattering at all, didn't even look like Kaylee. Didn't like the Zoe cover either because they didn't even get her rifle correct.

As for the story, I do see the resemblance in the Dobson drawing so no fault there for me. But Shepard hitting Mal, come on, just not seein' it. The rest of the story, well, I'll reserve judgement to #3.

Not happy but I'll buy them all anyway (3 sets of each cover too), which is all the bean counters care about anyway.

I aim to misbehave!

I know I'm opening myself up for some flaming...I'm as pissed at FOX's bungling of Firefly as much (or more than) as the next guy. One thing though that I think FOX may have gotten right is requiring Mal to be more likeable.

The real pilot "Serenity" shows Mal as being fairly unlikeable, but I only saw that show at the end of the first TV run, AFTER I'd already met and gotten to like Mal. It looks like Joss, free of FOX's constraints in these comics has turned Mal a bit darker once more. So far Mal has been a real jerk to just about everyone on the crew that interacts with him.

I'll admit that he's having a particularly rough time, what with Inara leaving and them not having any money...but sheesh, the troubles he's going through now can't be any worse than having Zoe unconsious, fighting for her life, his ship broken and running out of oxygen and Wash refusing to follow orders. During that episode, Mal merely shoves Wash up against the bulkhead and yells some sense into him..this time around, Wash merely tries to talk to him and he threatens to essentially break Wash's arm.

I don't like this Mal. I like the other Mal. I want the other Mal back. :(

Cheers,

Ken

Got my copies of the first one yesterday (wheee!) and have been informed that the second one is on the way.

That's the problem with living in Australia, everything takes so damned long to ship. But I've ordered all three copies of each three issues. I can't wait.

I thought River's voice was a bit off in the first one, I reserve judgement for the second and third when they come. I didn't like how they drew Inara (poor Morena, I'd be very upset).

Kaylee was cute, as always, but my fav rendition of her is the little picture in the back, with her hair all flying.

My favourite part of #1?

When the job goes sour and there's a picture of Mal, Zoe and Jayne in silhouette, and all's you get is a little voice bubble of Jayne saying "Gorramit".



It's too adorable.
