No Power in the ‘Verse Can Stop the Crew of the Serenity at BOOM! Studios this Fall
Another Day, Another Job
Attention all Browncoats! Return to the ‘Verse this Fall as superstar Marvel and DC writer Sam Humphries (Legendary Star-Lord) teams up with artist Jordi Pérez (All-New Firefly) and colorist Francesco Segala (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers) to bring you FIREFLY: THE FALL GUYS–a new six-issue limited series filled with assassins, jobs gone wrong, and organized crime!
The crew is broke and out of luck. They’ll have to deal with some of their shadier associates if Serenity is going to keep flying. What seems like an easy job in town for half the crew quickly turns sideways when feds, untrusting locals, and a high-profile politician get thrown into the mix…

“So thrilled to be welcomed into the Firefly ‘verse. I love Westerns, so bringing the best bandits in the galaxy back to their buckaroo roots with a fantastic artist like Jordi has been a dream,” said writer Sam Humphries. “Don’t worry, there’s still a giant gorram spaceship in the first issue. Yee haw!”
