Dark Horse heading back to the crew of the Serenity

July 21st, 2016 by Marc Comments


Firefly/Serenity is back, baby!

Yes Dark Horse comics are set to bring Mal and his crew back this October for an all new comic book called, feather aptly, No Power In The ‘Verse.

“I think that it’s the characters and their relationships first and foremost that keeps people coming back for more, followed pretty closely by the richness of the setting and the backstory,” comic writer and iZombie co-creator Chris Roberson says, “There’s just so much to explore.”

The book will be illustrated by Buffy and previous Serenity comic, Leaves on the Wind’s illustrator Georges Jeanty.

This book takes place about 18 months later and is a sequel to Leaves on the Wind: “The characters have been busy in the meantime,” Roberson says.

“They’re just wrapping up a job when they get a call from an old friend who is in desperate need of their help, and things get complicated pretty quickly.”

It looks like the book will take River back into the spotlight: “River plays a pretty central role in this story, in more ways than one,” Roberson says.

“She’s really come into her own as the pilot of Serenity, for one thing, but now that Zoe’s daughter Emma is toddling around on her own by this point, River is always on hand to help look after her as well. But the Alliance is still hunting for River, which is going to continue to put the rest of the crew in the crosshairs.”

No Power In The ‘Verse hits shelves on October 6th… and we think it’s all pretty shiny.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
