As part of their weekly #FirebronyMonday promotion, BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at Lee Garbett’s cover to Firefly #2, featuring the hand of Nathan Fillion. The cover will be available in a regular version and an inks only version, though the latter is described as “rare” so you’ll have to ask your comic shop how to get one, at which point they will presumably send you on a quest.
This spotlight on FIREFLY #2 begins with the reveal of the main cover by artist Lee Garbett (Skyward, Bone Parish), featuring a new vision of the enigmatic and lovable rogue known as Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds preparing for conflict. Now, fans will learn his true past and the definitive story of the Unification War — the intergalactic civil war that divided friend and family alike — in this new series by New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak (World War Hulk, Mech Cadet Yu) 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).
Plus, ask your local comic shop how to get a copy of the rare inks-only version of the FIREFLY #2 Lee Garbett cover.
Firefly #2 hasn’t been solicited yet, so we don’t know what’s going on in the issue, but here’s the series description:
Mal thought he could outrun his past, but when a simple mission 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.
Firefly #2 hits stores in December.
