Exclusive Look at the New Adventures of the Biggest Damn Heroes in the ‘Verse in July 2019
BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at FIREFLY #8 from 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. Available in stores July 2019.
Zoe and Mal are missing so it’s up to the rest of the crew and their new friend, the gunslinger Leonard Chang-Benitez, to save the day! What can a former preacher, jokester pilot, soft-hearted engineer, proper Companion, and two fugitive siblings do to get their crew members back from a bloodthirsty gang of thugs and a militia of underground Browncoats? Actually, a lot, it turns out. But there’s danger at every step and if anyone makes a wrong move, the whole plan will fall to pieces in an instant!
FIREFLY #8 features a main cover by Lee Garbett (Skyward), along with variant covers by Joe Quinones (Dial H For Hero), David Nakayama (Black Cat), and Juan Doe (Descendent).
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 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 ‘verse.
FIREFLY #8 is available July 17, 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.
