With the November launch of Boom! Studios’ new Firefly comic book series edging closer, the publisher has unveiled a new variant cover fo rthe first issue from acclaimed artist Joe Quinones (Captain Marvel), which puts Captain Malcolm ‘Mal’ Reynolds front and centre. Check it out here…
“Joe beautifully captures a key truth about Firefly – that the crew of Serenity may be led by Mal, but he wouldn’t be the person he is without the women who fight alongside him every day,” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Firefly has always been about found family and the small dramas that take place between members of the crew, and those are the building blocks here, even as we go back in time and show their origins.”
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 heist 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.
Firefly #1 will go on sale on November 14th 2018.
