Joe Quinones Dons a Browncoat for a Firefly #1 Variant

BOOM! Studios has unveiled a new variant for Firefly #1 out November 2018. Acclaimed artist Joe Quinones puts Captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds front and center on a special variant cover to celebrate the all new series revealing the definitive story of the Unification War — the intergalactic civil war that divided friend and family alike. New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak and artist Dan McDaid, along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon delve into the secret history of Firefly that fans have demanded for years!

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. 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 mission 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, J.G. Jones 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.
