Firefly: Bad Company #1 Reveals the Secret Origin of Saffron

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at the highly anticipated Firefly: Bad Company #1, the first oversized special issue from the company’s sold out continuation of Joss Whedon’s sci-fi epic. The issue reveals the secret origin story of the infamous Mrs. Reynolds, available in stores March 20, 2019.

Writer Josh Lee Gordon and artists Francesco Mortarino, Giuseppe Cafaro, and Moy R. reveal the long awaited origins of the most beloved Firefly character in the ’Verse—SAFFRON! Long before she was Yolanda or Saffron or Bridget, she was a pickpocket on the streets of an Alliance planet, close enough to touch the rich and admire their wealth yet too far to ever dream of being a part of their glamorous world. Go all the way back to the early days of Saffron’s story and learn how she became the extraordinary grifter and master thief who’s wreaked countless havoc throughout the ‘Verse and caused especial trouble for Serenity and her crew, including the current bounty on Mal’s head in the pages of Firefly…unless she’s lying about this, too.

Firefly: Bad Company #1 features a main cover by Diego Galindo and a variant cover by Jamal Campbell.

The crew’s split up and dealing with Unificators out for justice, gangs out for revenge, and a cult of pilgrims looking for a blood sacrifice. But that’s too many enemies and not enough crew so Mal and Zoe are forced to team up with Boss Moon, the relentless Unificator who’s chased them down to the far outer reaches of the ‘verse and who offers them a devil’s deal: turn themselves in to be tried as war criminals and her people will spare theirs.

BOOM! Releases a First Look at Buffy the Vampire Slayer #2

BOOM! Studios has unveiled a first look at Buffy the Vampire Slayer #2, the highly anticipated next chapter of the all new monthly comic book series.

Eisner Award-nominated writer Jordie Bellaire and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora, along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon, continue to reimagine the groundbreaking pop culture phenomenon.

The Slayer traditionally walks a lonely road as the Chosen One, forsaking family, friends, and anything remotely resembling a social life in order to fight the forces of evil and keep darkness at bay night after night. But this is Buffy Summers, who wants what every teenager wants: friends at her new school, decent grades, a cute crush, and to escape a destiny she neither chose nor asked for as a lone warrior imbued with supernatural strength and a terrible calling. When her classmates Willow and Xander find out about her secret identity as a vampire-hunting Slayer, they dive right in but there’s a reason why the Slayer is usually alone, and Buffy must face her fears about what happens when you let people into your life and put them in harm’s way.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #2  features a main cover by acclaimed Mondo illustrator Matthew Taylor, along with variant covers by artists Kevin Wada, Celia Lowenthal,  Ryan Inzana, and Audrey Mok. It comes to shelves February 27, 2019.

But the Slayer’s world looks a lot more like the one outside your window, as this new series brings her into a new era with new challenges, new friends…and a few enemies you might already recognize.
