  But when Serenity takes a job from a familiar face, they discover that their new, living, breathing cargo    is far more than they bargained for...and might bring them into conflict with Alliance once again!

    Just the right notes of familiar and new are continuing to be played as the new series slides into this second issue where more about the new characters and their dynamics is explored. Mascolo and Giammarino are a great duo who fully understand the duality that exists within this complicated science fiction western-inspired world they are now able to play with. Read Full Review

    FIREFLY: BRAND NEW VERSE #1 is a ton of fun. Emma Washburn is everything you would hope she would be. There is just enough mystery tied into this backstory that we really can sink our teeth into it while not being totally overwhelmed by it. The best way to tell a Firefly story is to make it just the right mixture of serious and silly. This hits all the right notes. Read Full Review

    There is a fair amount of time establishing the new status quo and new crew dynamics so as far as a larger, overarching plot, we only got a couple threads here and there, but the energy feels right and that's truly the most important thing. Read Full Review

    There is an equal balance of new versus old for the first entry into this new spinoff series that manages to capture some of the magic of the original series while adding a lot of its own flavor along the way. The issue has a lot to offer on the bright & fun pages that will likely entice new readers while throwing out enough breadcrumbs for the old hands. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Mar 24, 2021

    It’s early days in this series, which has made the bold move to jump forward in time by 20 years from its parent series. So far, all the pieces are there, with so much potential on offer, but only time will tell if it lives up to its namesake or not. One of the strengths of Firefly were the crew, and by removing them here are they paving the way for greatness or a disaster? Only time will tell. Either way the art looks great and really captures the Firefly ‘Verse. Read Full Review

    There's potential here in setting a new stage for adventures in the Firefly universe, but the creatives will need to execute better than this for it to pay off. Read Full Review

    The next generation Firefly reboot is a simply boring, imitative, and lazy relaunch. Read Full Review
