We’ve got a fun Friday treat for all the Firebronies out there (that’s the colloquial term for hardcore fans of the canceled television show Firefly). We’ve got this five-page preview of next month’s Firefly #9 from explosive publisher BOOM! Studios for your enjoyment. From the creative team of Greg Pak and Dan McDaid, and with consultation by Joss Whedon, Firefly #9 is set to be released on September 18th.
Check out the unlettered preview below.
LOS ANGELES, CA (August 16, 2019) – BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at FIREFLY #9 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. Available in stores September 2019.
The final showdown with bounty hunter Boss Moon starts here! With nowhere else to turn, and danger around every corner, Mal and the crew of Serenity must decide who’s the greater threat- their enemy Boss Moon or their other enemy, the Alliance?
FIREFLY #9 features a main cover by Lee Garbett (Skyward), along with variant covers by artists Joe Quinones (Dial H For Hero) and Will Sliney (Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge) and illustrator Aaron Dana.
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 #9 is available September 18, 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.
