BOOM! Studios today announced that the first-ever Firefly comic book letter column will launch in FIREFLY #1, arriving in comic shops on November 14th.
Fans are encouraged to send their e-mails with their questions and thoughts about the iconic worldwide pop culture phenomenon’s return to comic books to email@example.com with a nice, shiny “okay to print” in each e-mail.
The final instalment of BOOM Studios’ #MalCrushMonday is three pages of full-color art from the upcoming Firefly #1, written by Greg Pak and illustrated by Dan McDaid.
Firefly #1 will be in comics shops in November. The day will also include the release of Firefly: Legacy Edition Book One (collecting previously released Serenity comics for the first time under one cover) and Firefly Big Damn Heroes Box.
When BOOM! Studios’ Firefly #1 appears in comics shops in November, it will feature a number of variant covers – the latest to be unveiled is a portrait of Malcolm Reynolds by legendary artist Bill Sienkiewicz (below)
BOOM! Studios has unveiled a second variant cover (below) – by renowned artist J.G. Jones (Final Crisis) – for the premiere issue of its upcoming Firefly series by Greg Pak and Dan McDaid.
The series tells the tale of the crew of the spaceship Serenity – and how Mal’s actions during the War of Unification have put him and Zoe on a list of war criminals being hunted by the Unificators – mercenaries hired to track down war criminals.
Every year, BOOM! Studios sets out on the road to San Diego with a ten-day series of announcements – anything from hot new releases to one of their titles being optioned for TV or movies.
This year, BOOM! Studios begins its ten day journey by introducing Joss Whedon’s Firefly Comics – new monthly series, limited series, original graphic novels and more; created in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.
First up, in November, a series that takes us back to the Unification War – and the story of Mal and Zoe met.
Comic Con International 2018 will take place July 19th–22nd at the San Diego Convention Center, in San Diego, CA.
The folks at Fox Home video are releasing brand new box sets for Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly. Fans who purchase the Buffy set will receive an official “Buffy” Comic-Book With Exclusive Cover and those who get the new Firefly Blu-ray set will get a “Firefly” Poster and Collectible Cards. Sadly there’s still no Buffy Blu-ray box, which is ridiculous considering an HD version of Buffy has been airing in Syndication for the last few years so we know it exists. I just hope they improve the SD quality because the original set had a horrible, nearly unwatchable transfer.
Beginning this evening on Gotham (FOX, Mondays, 8/7C) is the two-part origin of The Firefly: Rise of the Villains: Bridgit Pike – as a young woman who is forced by her brothers into the family business – arson!
