Grant Us The Serenity!

jayne-hatAnd where Joss Whedon and Firefly is concerned, forget your ideas of what fandom can and cannot change and rejoice because they can’t stop the signal.

Dark Horse Comics just announced that their new comic series will pick up where the 2005 movie Serenity left off, with River Tam sitting in the co-pilot’s seat, and Zoe Washburn struggling to adjust to the death of her husband and the realization that she’ll be raising their soon-to-be-born child alone.

Buffy Season 8 artist George Jeanty has been announced as the artist, while the writer and the launch date are still up in the air.

I think this is just shiny.

  1. I would be a lot more excited about this if it weren't Jeanty. Who almost single handed made me hate the Buffy comics (almost...the writing definitely helped that choice as well).

    What's wrong with Chris Samnee, who did The Shepherd's Tale? Or Brett Matthews? Or Paul Lee? Cliff Richards? Any of these could do better likenesses, less ridiculous faux-digital blocking, ugly shading, and awful proportions.

    Writer's almost certainly not going to be Joss, and though some of the comics have been decent when he's not writing (and some of the ones he wrote were a bit dodgy), that doesn't fill me with confidence either.
