Firefly: Blue Sun Rising Kicks Off the First Ever Firefly Event

BOOM! Studios has announced Firefly: Blue Sun Rising #0, a special issue kicking off the first-ever Firefly event from New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak and artist Dan McDaid, along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon, as Mal and the crew take on the shadowy organization that’s haunted their steps all along—Blue Sun Corporation. 

Sheriff Mal Reynolds has a new partner—a law-enforcing robot from the Blue Sun Corporation, who doesn’t care about motives, mercy, or anything other than enforcing the law—no matter the cost.  The Blue Sun Corporation has helped to run the ‘Verse from the shadows for years, but they’re ready to step into the light and take over. 

If Mal wants to keep his job and protect his sector, he probably should play by their rulebook. That leaves only one choice for Mal —reunite the crew of the Serenity for one last impossible job to save the ‘Verse.

Firefly: Blue Sun Rising #0 features a main cover by acclaimed illustrator Nimit Malavia, along with variant covers from artists Christian Ward, Caitlin Yarsky, and more. The event kicks off with a prelude in Firefly #20 and runs in issues #21-24 and concludes with Firefly: Blue Sun Rising #1. Firefly: Blue Sun Rising #0 comes to stores in September 2020.
