Book Description

Nov. 27 2007 Serenity (Dark Horse)
Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) bridges the gap between his cult-hit Firefly TV series and his Serenity motion picture with this three-issue comics series - now in a hardcover edition! The ragtag crew of Serenity - mercenaries, fugitives, and one law-abiding prostitute - pursue fast cash and a little peace along the fringes of space. On a scavenger mission that promises a big payoff, they realize too late that they are being played by an old enemy with a grudge.

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

4.0 out of 5 stars More of Mal's Misbehavin' May 27 2008
By J. Holt - Published on Amazon.com
I got hold of this 3-issue TPB after reading the recent mini-series "Better Days" (also from Dark Horse). I was surprised reading the reviews of this collection that fans were disappointed.

"Those Left Behind" is far superior to "Better Days." As other reviewers commented, reading this one is like watching the show. You also see things that they may not have been able to pull off on the show (Zero-G, space graveyard). I also liked elements here that I've wondered about: what about rival merc teams? How close was Kaylee getting Simon where she wanted him? How do Book and Inara end up off the ship?

Ultimately, this was a satisfying read. Unbelievably better than "Better Days" (which should be avoided). Also, the covers and variant covers by various top-of-the-field artists, in addition to the great interior art -- all of it is just purty.

4.0 out of 5 stars Firefly Fans Rejoice! Aug. 16 2013
By Shannon M. Mcgee - Published on Amazon.com
This graphic novel based off the defunct T.V. show Firefly. It takes place somewhere in between the series and the movie Serenity. So many good shows such as Joss Whedon's Firefly end too soon so I am a big fan of the fact that they continued the story in comic book form.

The intro by Nathan Fillion was brilliant. The art is amazing. Seeing all the characters I loved from the tv show and movie. To me it was set up like an another episode of the show. The art matches dialogue wonderfully.

I was not a big fan of bringing back the bad guy who should have been dead but I guess no one stays dead in Whedon comics. This comic also jumps into the world of Firefly that anyone who is not a fan reading may be confused. I believe it is strictly for fans.

I can not wait to read more graphic novels of Serenity. They are a joy to read.
