    Proof that theres life in this old girl yet, the series as a whole has been absolutely wonderful, even if this particular issue – by its very nature of wrapping up everything thats happened, and setting up a new status quo – isnt quite as good as its predecessor. Still, it leaves you wanting more, and thats very much to its credit, and its not enough to dock it any points. And then theres the final panel – you can practically hear David Newmans score from the film playing over it, and if ever there was a better one to end a comic on, Ive not come across it yet. A ship, a leaf, a breeze, and we watched them all soar rather high indeed. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jun 24, 2014

    Serenity: Leaves on The Wind #6 was the end that this mini-series deserved. Ended on a heartwarming note while also leaving room for another story which can take place afterwards. We all know the story is far from done for the Serenity crew and that last panel was a good way of keeping us interested in what will happen next. This is definitely a part of their story you don't want to miss if you want to know the direction their lives are taking because they are in every sense of the phrase “Leaves on The Wind”.

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Jun 24, 2014

    Serenity: Leaves on the Wind has been a phenomenal series and a must have for any Firefly fan. The way that the creative team has followed on from the film as well as develop new concepts makes it one of the best continuation series I've ever read. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    This series overall and this final issue in particular was great. If you were a fan of Firefly and/or Serenity, you will enjoy this series. If you haven't had the chance to check out Firefly and Serenity, I would highly recommend it to be able to understand and fully enjoy these comics. Read Full Review

    The only drawback, if there is one at all, is that this comic very much depends on you being familiar with these characters. The story is written well enough that you can entirely follow what is going on through the series without having ever watched an episode of Firefly, I'm just not sure you would care about anything that happens. I'd still recommend checking it out, and if you like it then try the show. If you are a Firefly fan, definitely pick this series up. It is a really strong continuation of the series we all loved, and I really hope there is more. Check the series out, and try to track down all 6 issues of the mini-series if you can (or read it digitally!). If you can't manage it, or can't be arsed, Dark Horse will be releasing a hard cover of the whole ofLeaves on the Wind in November. So check it out then! Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Jun 18, 2014

    It was also a bit of a letdown that Mal's speech from the prior issue about finally taking a stand didn't really pan out. Maybe they're saving that for another miniseries"and considering how great this one was, that would be just fine with me. Read Full Review

    While I didn't like the cliffhanger ending, I really enjoyed the final issue of this miniseries Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jun 30, 2014

    The only sequence I thought felt out of place was the confrontation between the frehsly-rescued Zoe and the Operative. It's not that I don't feel that scene would have taken place, I'm just not quite buying taking place at that particular moment which seems a bit shoehorned into the comi (plus it removes an intriguing character from the fold). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Jun 25, 2014

    This series won't win any converts to the Browncoat cause. At least, not as easily as a marathon of the Firefly DVD set. But devout fans will be able to tough out the sloppy artwork for the sake of a ripping good yarn of a story. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Jun 23, 2014

    It reminds me a lot of Highlander: Endgame in that that was supposed to be a movie made from a TV show but ended up a TV movie IE it's made to almost aggressively pander to people who wanted more of what they saw in the show not more adventures of these characters and universe. By contrast Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #6 has been a very fun is very basic action adventure scifi western story with these characters, yes it's a little on the shallow side and doesn't manage to mangle a full on resolution out of the bajillion plot threads started in the past 5 issues but it does a good job of entertaining and is a fun read which is a pretty good thing to be overall; recommended.

    Comic Bastards - Kimberly Gibson Jun 26, 2014

    I think that Georges Jeanty is becoming one of my favorite illustrators; I am always thoroughly impressed with how he captures facial expressions and creates this beautiful world that is Serenity. Laura Martin also does the coloring for this series which I definitely appreciate as it just adds to the whole galactic feel. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Jun 27, 2014

    While the book was still pretty fun and the visuals were quite good, the overall execution of this one was a bit of a flop. It almost felt like a lot of the series ended up being somewhat pointless as everything was cleaned up so neatly and with such relative ease. Again, this is not to say the book was unenjoyable as a whole. However, there really should have been more to this. Luckily, we're set for another Serenity miniseries sometime in the future, and the end of Leaves on the Wind opened some potentially exciting new directions. Read Full Review

    While not a 'complete' as previous Serenity mini-series, this opens up plenty of new territory for stoytelling and making the fans go squeeee.
