Boom! Studios continued the first part spotlight on the return of Joss Whedon’s Firefly with another #MalCrushMonday. This time the publisher revealed the Bill Sienkiewicz variant cover for Firefly #1, due out in November 2018 featuring the captain himself, Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds.
Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, Boom! Studios says:
There are a handful of artists who’ve helped redefine the language and look of comic books – and Bill Sienkiewicz is among the best. He captures everything we love about Mal – the swagger, the smirk and the sense that the minute you meet him, you’re in deep trouble.
Firefly #1, written by Greg Pak and illustrated by Dan McDaid looks into Mal’s true past and the definitive story of the Unification War. Joss Whedon is serving as a story consultant. The Sienkiewicz cover joins the J.G. Jones variant that was revealed last week.
Look for the first issue on November 14th, 2018. Ask your local comic shop how you can get an ultra-rare version of the Bill Sienkiewicz variant cover signed by Joss Whedon!
