Firefly #1 gets a J.G. Jones Variant

BOOM! Studios is gearing up for the debut of Firefly #1 in November 2018, bringing the iconic worldwide pop culture phenomenon back to comic books, original graphic novels and more in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.

The publisher has revealed a special variant cover by superstar artist J.G. Jones spotlighting the iconic crew of the spaceship Serenity as the series reveals the secret Firefly history that fans have demanded for years! Now, the definitive story of the Unification War — the intergalactic civil war that divided friend and family alike — is told at last by New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak and artist Dan McDaid, along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon.

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 governed 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 universe.

Mal thought he could outrun his past, but when a simple heist 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 #1 is available exclusively in comic shops on November 14, 2018 with a main cover by superstar Lee Garbett, along with variant covers by Jock, Bill Sienkiewicz, Joe Quinones and more.

Arriving in stores the same day, Firefly: Legacy Edition Book One collects previously released Serenity comics for the first time under one cover in a new value-priced format as Mal and the crew ride again in these official sequels to the critically acclaimed Firefly television series and Serenity film.
