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

HASH(0xa7667d68) out of 5 stars More of Mal's Misbehavin' May 27 2008
By J. Holt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
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.

HASH(0xa813ffd8) out of 5 stars Firefly Fans Rejoice! Aug. 16 2013
By Shannon M. Mcgee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
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.

This book very nicely bridges the gap between the lamentably short "Firefly" series and the movie "Serenity". It helps to fill in the missing story line as to why the Rev and Innara have left the ship prior to the start of the movie.

I just recently discovered firefly and serenity and fell in love with the story, the character and everything about it. I was very sad that it is over and was excited about the idea of reading this comic books.

The story, drawings and quality of this comic books it's amazing. he characters look and act like the ones in the tv shows and by the end of all the books I ended wanting more and more of them. I really hope they keep coming.
HASH(0xa764f444) out of 5 stars Mal and his motley crew travel the galaxy working, stealing and fighting to survive Dec 7 2014
By Clark Hallman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Serenity: Those Left Behind by Joss Whedon, Brett Matthews and Will Conrad (a graphic novel from Dark Horse Books) - The reader joins Captain Malcolm Reynolds of the Firefly-class starship Serenity and his renegade crew attempting to appropriate some supplies and money on the planet Constance. However, other renegades rob Serenity’s crew of their money and supplies and the Serenity gang must fight their way off the planet. Thus begins an appealing space opera as Mal and his renegades battle other villains as they voyage through space looking for other lucrative opportunities. We also meet interesting characters including Shepard Book, Mal’s spiritual but combative friend, and Agent Dobson who wants Mal dead. This hardback includes beautiful color illustrations and complimentary readings, such as: An interesting introduction by Nathan Fillion, who played Malcolm Reynolds in the Serenity movie; a pre-production memo “A Brief History of the Universe, Circa 2516 A.D.”; and several extra art panels. This is an enjoyable graphic novel, especially for fans of the short-lived TV series and the movie.
