    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Blair Jan 10, 2020

    While die hard hardcore fans of the show might have a few issues with the way Captain Malcolm Reynolds is portrayed in the comic, it more than makes up for it with the introduction and backstory of Ma Reynolds, who would have made a great character in the tv show. Read Full Review

    It's a short read that feels like it'll get picked up again, but it feels right at home with the rest of this universe. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 13, 2020

    It's not easy to read about what made Mal Reynolds the man he is today, but it makes for a pretty great story and sets up a potential long-running foe. The art is quite good, as well. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Dave Robbins Jan 8, 2020

    A charming take in the Firefly verse all about the fun in Malcolm Reynold's dysfunctional family. It's not every day a man has to take his Ma to jail. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jan 8, 2020

    Despite appearing to only be a one-shot this is essential reading for the main Firefly storyline. Good fun and nice to focus on Mal for a change but I missed the rest of the crew and I'm looking forward to them getting back together in the main series. My only real gripe is how this issue was set up in Firefly #12, it just didn't feel realistic to me. The change in artists is a welcome change. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Jan 9, 2020

    The issue doesn't wholly resolve this mother and son's complicated relationship, but does illustrate the compelling predicament the two find themselves in, as two soldiers with vastly different ideas about when the fighting stops. Read Full Review
