    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Nov 14, 2018

    Firefly #1 gave me high hopes for what BOOM! Studios can offer with their shot at exploring this verse. These characters are given a voice that you resonate with, and its all the same fun shenanigans that only they can get themselves into trying to simply survive. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Kaasen Koy Nov 14, 2018

    Firefly #1 reads like a lost episode of the beloved show. It feels great to be back aboard with these characters and they’re just how you remember them. The comic captures that mixed-western motif and the muddy blend of futuristic tech with dust and grit inside its workings. Comfortable to spend most of its pages reintroducing rather than reinventing, there’s a hint of turbulence as Serenity takes to the sky, but she’s still flying - and flying smoothly - after the first few pages. It’s good to be back in the ‘Verse. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Nov 13, 2018

    Firefly #1 is familiar but comforting. In many ways, it feels like a script from the original series. While Pak gets bogged down by a few wordy panels, this issue has everything that we love about Firefly. Read Full Review
