Firefly fans, get ready for some good news. Boom! Studios is bringing us a new Firefly comic, coming out this fall, that will finally answer your questions about the Unification War! The series will be written by Greg Pak (Planet Hulk (inspiration for Thor: Ragnarok)) and illustrated by artist Dan McDaid. Joss Whedon will serve as story consultant on the series.
This is Boom!’s first foray into a Firefly comic. Other comics from the Firefly universe have come out of Dark Horse since the original series aired. This is the first about the Unification War. Beyond being the reason for Mal and Zoe’s bond, their dark past, and traumatic character backstory… we don’t know much about what happened to Mal and Zoe during that time.
Whedon said of this new series, “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,”. It is so exciting to get a look into such important history for the characters we’ve grown to love!
EW broke an exclusive about the comic, complete with images from the book and an interview with Pak. The new comic will launch this November.
