Boom! Studios Launches #MalCrushMonday for New Firefly Comic

Boom! Studios is starting a hashtag today to remind everyone in the entire world that they have taken the Firefly license off of Dark Horse and will be publishing a new Firefly comic book series in November, written by Greg Pak, drawn by Dan McDaid (Judge Dredd), with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon.

#MalCrushMonday is something that they will be pushing around this time every week until it’s solicited, and today that means a variant cover by JG Jones.

Mal thought he could outrun his past, but when a simple heist goes wrong, he’s forced to confront it in the form of the Unificators, mercenaries deputized to hunt down war criminals…and they’ve got Mal and Zoe at the top of their list! War can make villains of even the best men, and Mal’s quest for redemption will put him at odds with his own crew, forcing him to make a choice: fix the past or fight for the future.

And a reminder that on the same day, they will release the first in a series of collections of previously released Firefly/Serenity comics from Dark Horse — but now from Boom!. Well, Fox did buy into Boom! and bring them to their lot… what happens now, with Disney and Fox’s moves, is yet to be understood… but they probably aim to misbehave.
