Book Description

Jan. 31 2006 Serenity (Dark Horse)
Penned by Whedon and Brett Matthews, who wrote several episodes of "Firefly" as well as Dark Horse's final "Angel" comics series and the animated "Chronicles of Riddick" feature "Dark Fury," "Serenity" follows a ship full of mercenaries, fugitives and one law-abiding prostitute in their pursuit for fast cash and a little peace along the fringes of space. The ragtag crew of Serenity take on a scavanger mission with the hopes of earning enough dough to disappear for a while. Only too late do they realize the whole gig is orchestrated by an old enemy eager remake their aquanitance with the help of some covert-operatives known only as the Blue Gloves. Artist Will Conrad (Marvel's "Elektra" and "Witches") and colorist Laura Martin ("Astonishing X-Men" and "The Ultimates") paint a rough and wild world of adventure across a strange and dangerous universe, in this not-to-be-missed tale straight from the brain of pop-culture mastermind Joss Whedon!

Product Description

From Booklist

With the war between the Alliance and the independent Browncoats over, Mal Reynolds, captain of the Serenity, and his crew of misfits, fugitives, and would-be outlaws work the frontier. Defeated and directionless, their goal has become simply to keep flying, and Mal is willing to take any job, in- or outside the law, to achieve it. Although their willingness to flout rules has occasionally played to their favor, they may be in over their heads in taking aboard Simon and his damaged sister, River, secretive fugitives from the Alliance. Mal and his crew may not know it, but the hunt is on, and the Alliance is right behind them. Whedon elaborates on his Firefly universe in this small prequel to the movie Serenity. If this story doesn't have much in the way of plot or background, an aura of character study suffuses it, enlightening Serenity newcomers while warming the hearts of fans. Will Conrad's slick and fluid artwork captures the essence of how the film actors realized the characters without losing comic-book feel. Tina Coleman

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
"Firefly" was cancelled halfway through its first and only season. The final few episodes did not get aired, which seemed a fitting ending, because when the series began they skipped the pilot movie to air some other episodes first. When we finally got to see the episodes that did not air, we discovered that River Tam was something more than some sort of insane person with psychic tendencies. One of the things we know about Joss Whedon television shows from watching "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel" is that there is a story arc for the first half of a season, which combines with a second half story arc to up the ante. Consequently, just as "Firefly" was getting interesting, FOX pulled the plug. Having already killed off "Dark Angel" to make room for "Firefly," it was adding insult to injury (or visa versa).

But "Firefly" fans were legion, they were vocal, and they bought enough copies of the DVD set of the abbreviated series and that gave Whedon the backing to do "Serenity," a theatrical movie that would bring some closer to the "Firefly" saga. However, the opening of the movie established that Inara and Shepherd Book were no longer aboard the good ship "Serenity." We would find out where they were in the course of the movie, but that still begged the question as to how it came to be that they left Captain Mal Reynolds and the rest of the crew behind. This would be the sort of things that fans would be able to speculate about for years, as did "Star Trek" fans filling in the gap between the original series and the first movie. However, Whedon has saved us from such fun.

"Serenity: Those Left Behind" is more a prequel to the "Serenity" movie than it is a an attempt to cover everything in between.

I bought these books for my daughter, a true Firefly fan but my son and I have devoured them. Not a comics fan in general, having seen too many awful ones, I was delighted with these graphic novel compilations. They are expertly drawn, feel just like watching the series and are worthy sequels in every sense to the series. I highly recommend all 3 of these books to anyone who loves Joss Whedon's Firefly and Serenity. You will not be disappointed.

y is always a good thig, and I'll take as uch as I can get. I'd prefer a reboot of the series, or even an animated series, but I love comics, and I love the Serenity comics.

Thoughtful, insightful. If only. It is hard to capture Whedonesque but this does it all as best as one can speculate. Thanks!

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard to Follow but Visually Very Good Aug. 16 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is not full size and that is not mentioned when you buy it. The story is also a little scattered and hard to follow, trying to put a lot of information into less than 80 pages.
That being said the illustrations are very good and look very like the actors playing the parts in Serenity and Firefly. If you enjoyed the series or movie see the other and then this book will make more sense.

By J. Tupone TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This comic is a good product and it really comes off like another episode of Firefly, which I thought was really interesting. The artwork certainly was lacking somewhat (e.g. Simon looks nothing like he does in the series) and the writing didn't have all the usual quips and witty remarks that the various characters make on the TV series. Apart from that, it was a lot like an episode of the show. I think there could have been more added to the story by expanding it into a longer series with more material. I hear that there's another comic coming out in the future; another "prequel" - I hope that there's a possibility of an expanded series. Since the TV show is not coming back, those of us who are Firefly addicts could seek our fix from an expanded comic book series. The comic is a must read for any Firefly fan because you just can't miss the opportunity to take in another Firefly episode; but it fails to satisfy the insatiable appetite of Firefly fans.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work
The story might have translated into a decent episode of Firefly. However, as a comic, the whole enterprise leaves a lot to be desired. First, the artwork is poor. Read more
