Book Description

Nov. 16 2010 Serenity (Dark Horse) (Book 3)
One of Serenity's greatest mysteries is finally revealed in The Shepherd's Tale, filling in the life of one of the show's most beloved characters—Shepherd Book!

Who was Book before meeting Mal and the rest of the Serenity crew? How did he become one of their most trusted allies? And how did he find God in a bowl of soup? Answers to these and more questions about Book's past are uncovered in this original graphic novel by rising stars Zack Whedon (Dr. Horrible, Terminator, Fringe) and Chris Samnee (Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps, Daredevil). A pivotal chapter in the ongoing Serenity saga, The Shepherd's Tale is also a rollicking, action-packed epic in its own right!

• "Dark Horse's Serenity displays the key ingredients of the series in a substantial and entertaining way."—

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest tale March 28 2011
You know he has a story, and it is amazing!

The tale itself is fabulously written, but it is also greatly structured. The story is told backwards, starting with his demise, and ending with the beginning, his childhood. Each tale is told in a few pages, perfectly linked, like a series of flashback events.

I highly recommend it, and you do not need to have read the previous 2 volumes to read this one, so go right ahead and pick it up now.

5.0 out of 5 stars great but about 100 pages too short March 28 2011
By digidon
Nice to see into Book's past, and as always, great to have more firefly based work, but waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too short. I could watch and read this stuff for days and be fine with it. It may not actually bee too short, but I am still sad it's gone...

5.0 out of 5 stars Firefly, the comic books June 19 2014
By N
Joss Whedon's Firefly is wonderful in all it's formats. The comic book series adds to the tv series. The artwork is beautiful.

Not normally a follower of graphics but Book's character has always intrigued me. This realistically completes the story that needed the telling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book Feb. 21 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great book. I mean, yes, it's totally heart-wrenching, but a must-read for any Firefly/Serenity fans. Leaves you with rather more questions than you started with, but in the good way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Questions finally answered Feb. 3 2013
By Grommet
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Shepherd Book was such a great character who very clearly had a past story that the show wanted to tell one day. Unfortunately the show never had the chance to do so.
This book provides the back story to the enigmatic Shepherd that I had wondered about since the show's cancellation.
The reason for four stars as opposed to five is likely more due to my own excitement going in. The book answers the questions I had, but it felt anti-climactic. I don't really know why, but I feel that it fell just short of my (admittedly high) expectations.

5.0 out of 5 stars A concentration on Book and interestingly done. Jan. 20 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It certainly took my concentration to follow this story and how it is told but it was so satisfying to get to the end of this series of flashbacks and tales and find my knowledge of Book/the Shepherd so fleshed out. It explained so much of how he acts and why and where he came from. A rather astonishingly rich tale, given I've seen so many poorly done comics and graphic novels out there. These are not in that class. These books are top flight in production values, depth of story telling, staying true to the characters and the excellence of the art work. They are as unflinching as the series was, perhaps even more so and make for a fascinating read. Highly recommended for all Serenity/Firefly fans. Joss Wheedon does not disappoint, nor those working with him.
