Publisher’s Summary: “As Sheriff Malcolm Reynolds enters the final endgame with his former crewmates and the new Bandit King, the long con’s finally revealed! But whose con is it? They say you can’t trick a trickster, but in this brand new ‘Verse, Mal may be in for the surprise of his life. Also: not everyone will get out of this alive!”


Review

Mal thinks he has found a way to get his former crew (Kaylee, Jayne, and Kaylee’s “boyfriend” Leonard) off the hook for all the crimes against Blur Sun, while still maintaining his job and reputation as the new Sheriff in town. A simple disguise and some voice acting should have done the trick, he thought, but as anyone who knows his is aware, thinking is not his strongest skill.

Meanwhile, Zoë, Wash, Book, Simon and River are just trying to find a nice place to hide out for a while, too bad the real estate agent talks too much. Even when they think they found safe haven; it is not long before they are forced to move to another one. Greg Pak brings his substantial talents to the Firefly ‘Verse with a story that fits between the series and the movie. Not only does the action move along at breakneck speed, but the foreshadowing edges in as the pages turn.

The legacy of Firefly is safe in the hands of Greg Pak in a tale as exciting as it is ominous. For fans of the show and writer alike. The artwork too, never disappoints. With sweeping landscapes and epic fight scenes, Daniel Bayless and Francesco Segala add the cinematic quality a property like Firefly so richly deserves.

The Bottom Line

Once again, Boom has shown consistency in quality with an exploration of the backstories in an existing IP. Come for the family characters, stay for the compelling story.

Stray Dogs is a delightful story in contrasts. The best of the good dogs have to solve a mystery, and I’m all in from the moment it starts.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Faith #1 Review

Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Faith is a terrific jumping on point for the Buffyverse centering on one of the most conflicted characters of them all. A satisfying entry in the canon for old and new fans alike.

A war-torn horror tale that's steeped equally in blood and magic, Two Moons is not to be missed. This first issue sets the stage for what promises to be an unforgettable series.
