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

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.

Format: Paperback
There is not enough FIREFLY/SERENITY in the world, it's just a fact. SERENITY: THOSE LEFT BEHIND is wonderful just for giving fans a little bit more of this fantastic and enjoyable world and its characters. It's also wonderful on just about every other account.

The artwork is immediately gorgeous and consistent--all of the characters appear exactly as they're thespian counterparts do on television, Serenity herself is perfect inside and out, and the colours are brilliant. The story takes place between the end of the television program FIREFLY and the beginning of the motion picture SERENITY, and is a good bridge between the two, answering some questions--such as why Shepard Book was no longer travelling with the crew, and what happened to the men with the blue hands.

Our ragtag space heroes are all perfectly represented with great dialogue and action. My one complaint would be that it's too short. At only one hundred pages, this little graphic novel feels awfully rushed in some places (although it still doesn't skimp on the action.) Of course, even if it was ten thousand pages, I'd still want more. Anyways, this is a must have for FIREFLY fans; here's hoping they publish some more!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The Rogue Ninja on May 10 2008
Format: Paperback
The story within this graphic novel takes place between the final episode of the Firefly series and the movie Serenity, answering some long-pondered questions regarding that time period, most notably with regards to Shepard and River. It's unfortunate that it couldn't have been longer or couldn't have answered more questions (for example, we never did find out about Shepard's past), but beggars can't be choosers. The fans had questions, and Joss Whedon gladly answered at least some of them.
Regardless of how fulfilled fans are by this filler, the book is jam-packed with gorgeous artwork and Whedon's trademark comedy. You won't be disappointed.

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.

By Nicola Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 16 2009
Format: Paperback
Takes place between the end of Firefly but before the movie Serenity. Inara continues her plans to leave. We are shown why Shepard Book left Serenity. Begins with a typical heist that does not go right. And we meet various other characters who create havoc for our friends, Badger and the Men in Blue Gloves. Nothing terribly special but a lot of fun revisiting the wonderful characters. The dialogue was written wonderfully, I could just hear the actor's voices in my head as I read. The artwork is quite good. Inara, Jayne and Kaylee are particularly close to their real live counterparts. Fun! Must read for fans.
