From Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and scribe of Marvel's Astonishing X-Men, comes Serenity, the hit comic based on the sensational cult TV show Firefly and the immensely popular movie Serenity. The crew of the ship Serenity once again find themselves broke and on the wrong side of a number of very large firearms, making this issue a case study in how to mix intense, Whedon-style character interaction with cinematic action and violence. Artist Will Conrad and colorist Laura Martin paint a rough and wild world of adventure across a strange and dangerous universe.

Now there are some elements of unnecessary confusion during the action, as the scene where we see Zoe deals with Jayne's errant grenade wasn't as clearly detailed as it could've been. However, the art does offer up some lovely images in this issue, from the one page spread where we see the water tower is used to wipe out the group that were chasing our heroes, to the disquieting element of the final pages as fan of the series are sure to take notice of a certain piece of cl Read Full Review
