Exclusive Look at the New Adventures of the Biggest Damn Heroes in the ‘Verse
BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at FIREFLY #4, arriving in comic book shops on February 27th. New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak (Star Wars, Ronin Island) and artist Dan McDaid (Judge Dredd), along with series creator & story consultant Joss Whedon (the visionary writer/director behind Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s The Avengers and more) continue the iconic worldwide pop culture phenomenon’s sold-out return to comic books in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.
The crew’s split up and dealing with Unificators out for justice, gangs out for revenge, and a cult of pilgrims looking for a blood sacrifice. But that’s too many enemies and not enough crew so Mal and Zoe are forced to team up with Boss Moon, the relentless Unificator who’s chased them down to the far outer reaches of the ‘verse and who offers them a devil’s deal: turn themselves in to be tried as war criminals and her people will spare theirs.
FIREFLY #4 features a main cover by Lee Garbett (Skyward), along with variant covers by Garbett, Joe Quinones (America), Marguerite Sauvage (Archie), and Jonathan Case (Over the Garden Wall).
“Mal and Zoe are no strangers to striking a bargain with questionable people but no matter how sideways the deal went or what kind of trouble they got into, the rest of Serenity’s crew always had their back because they’re family. It’s why we love this gorram crew of outlaws and exiles so much.” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios, “But some crimes are unforgivable, and when their past is revealed, it could be that this crew who’s been to every end of the ‘verse for each other might finally break apart under the weight of their secrets.”
Created by Whedon and set 500 years in the future in the wake of a universal civil war, FIREFLY centers on the crew of Serenity, a small transport spaceship that doesn’t have a planet to call home. Captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds, a defeated soldier who opposed the unification of the planets by the totalitarian governed Alliance, will undertake any job — legal or not — to stay afloat and keep his crew fed. Thrust together by necessity but staying together out of loyalty, these disparate men and women are seeking adventure and the good life, but face constant challenges on the new frontier, such as avoiding capture by the Alliance, and evading the dangers you find on the fringes of the universe.
FIREFLY #4 is available February 27, 2019 exclusively in comic shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.
Available now, Firefly: Legacy Edition Book One collects previously released Serenity comics for the first time under one cover in a new value-priced format as Mal & the crew ride again in these official sequels to the critically acclaimed Firefly television series and Serenity film.
FIREFLY is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to a world-class group of licensed comic book series and ambitious original series, including Joss Whedon’s Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Planet of the Apes, Abbott, Mech Cadet Yu, Grass Kings, and Klaus.
