Firefly has soared back into comic shops (and our hearts) thanks to Boom! Studios and it’s been a blast so far. Granted, we’re only one issue in. The publisher is already looking ahead and has given us a sneak peek at Firefly #3, due out in January from writer Greg Pak and artist Dan McDaid.
This issue picks up with the crew learning the shocking truth about the actions of their leaders in the Unifications War. They’re splintered and more vulnerable than ever to the Unificators and an enemy they never expected. We’ll get a look at the untold origin of their leader, Boss Moon as she looks to take revenge on the two people who ruined her life: Mal and Zoe.
Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, at Boom! Studios says:
We’ve always known that Mal and Zoe had to make tough decisions during the Unification war, but Boss Moon is the living embodiment of the consequences. As we learn more about her connection to the captain and his first officer, we’ll also see that sometimes the lines between heroes and villains is even thinner than we ever imagined. Firefly has always explored the nuances of the people we choose as family and how we forgive the past without forgetting it. This is the issue where we’ll see just how strong the bond between the crew really is – and discover more about the past that has defined Mal and Zoe.
Firefly #3 will feature a main cover by Lee Garbett and variant covers by Garbett, Joe Quinones, and Marguerite Sauvage. It’s set for release on January 16th, 2019.
