    Another fantastic issue from Pak and McDaid. They handle the source material so faithfully. The characters feel like they just jumped off the screen but this isnt a rehash of the show as the characters even feel deeper than they ever have before. Read Full Review

    I must be honest, I never saw Firefly, maybe because of its short duration it was not given the corresponding diffusion, so I did a little homework and I investigated and what I have read allows me to say that it is a comic that is faithful to the series and not I doubt it since it is sincerely a story full of emotions and a worthy adaptation of the TV series.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Dec 19, 2018

    Firefly #2 was equal parts heartwarming and heartbreaking. This creative team did not skip a beat giving us the soul of this franchise in just two issues so far. They have my faith right now that they can do this story and these characters justice. All they have to do is continue tapping into that well of potential and things that haven't been touched yet by other creatives. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Dec 21, 2018

    With its attention to the rhythms of how its characters speak, at first, Firefly #2 might seem nostalgic. However, Greg Pak, Dan McDaid, and Marcelo Costa actually start to craft a narrative casting a deep shadow on the characters we've quoted, admired, and dressed up like for over a decade. It strikes a nice balance between having its own story and being a prequel. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 28, 2018

    The comic ends on a darkly humorous note with Zoe and Wash both attempting to protect each other leading to two members of the team shooting each other just as an entire battalion of Alliance soldiers land on the planet. Things just got even more complicated. Nope, never boring. And never easy. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Like most episodes of Firefly, all of this ends up putting a lot of pressure on the relationships between the members of that crew, which inevitably leads to more than one of them doing something noble but stupid that may only make the situation worse. In other words, it's exactly the kind of story Firefly fans crave. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Victor Benito Dec 18, 2018

    Firefly carries the show's spark and gives its lore room to breathe. Worth checking out for fans of the show or the Western genre. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 20, 2018

    An interesting story that doesn't quite stick the landing and art that has slight problems with clarity, but still an interesting read. Read Full Review

    Loyal Browncoats will be able to ignore the erratic artwork for the sake of the story but this series seems unlikely to convert anyone into a Firefly fan. Read Full Review

    Firefly #2 still has a lot going for it, especially in the humor department, but the story feels much muddier compared to its crackling opening chapter. Read Full Review
