    While I wish we were getting a continuation of where Dark Horse left off with the post-Serenity comics, this is possibly the next best thing we could have gotten. The writing is fun, and the art is SO stellar. Any fan of the tv show will love this one! The stakes are a little low since we know which characters survive the story because of the timeline, but it’s still a great story that fleshes out the world even further. 5/5 stars.

    First off, I am a huge fan of the series (and the film). I really enjoyed the comics from Dark Horse and was really looking forward to this new series. But I ended up being a wee bit disappointed. Why? One, this new series ignores the stuff from the Dark Horse series. Different company. Different contributors. Creative license. It's certainly their prerogative. But I still found it frustrating.

Second, while the art is on the whole good, there were some individual panels that were just awful, with weirdly disjointed postures or faces. But, as I said, for the most part it wasn't a problem. Third, I've read a lot of Greg Pak's work at other companies and have enjoyed it. So I had high expectations. Maybe he just hasn't gotten warmed up yet, but these first four issues felt a bit flat. The characters felt more like they were just spouting expected (cliched) comments instead of having individual voices. But overall I did enjoy it and I will be continuing with the series.

    Greg Pak nails the voices of the characters of Firefly, which I think is the most important thing to say. From the first page, I'm hearing all the dialog as if the actors are reading it, and it sounds perfectly in line with the universe of Firefly (which is good, because the art isn't quite as good at capturing the characters; they're recognizable, but... a bit off). And the story feels very true to the series as well - taking place between the series and the movie, an attack leaves Serenity gro Greg Pak nails the voices of the characters of Firefly, which I think is the most important thing to say.

And the story feels very true to the series as well - taking place between the series and the movie, an attack leaves Serenity grounded, and the business Mal dredges up to earn money for repairs..., well it goes about as badly as you might expect. Pilgrims of questionable faith and hunters of war criminals (or, as they're better known, browncoats) merge into an explosive story that has a whole lot of action supporting some brief glimpses back to the Unification war, even though that really isn't as primary a topic as the title of the book would hint. I would have rated it a little higher had the art been more on brand and had the ending actually provided any closure - it's very much a cliffhanger. But the story and the dialog are very good (although Zoe, Wash, Mal and newcomers carry most of the story - the rest of the crew have brief moments to shine, but spend most of the story in the background), and I look forward to reading more of it. Highly recommended to fans of the show; those who aren't familiar with the characters won't get nearly as much out of it, though.

    Rounding up from 3.5/5. Good bones and excellent concept of filling in some of the gaps of Mal and Zoe's past. As usual, "protagonists" and "heroes" doesn't mean "saints" when it comes to this series, and this volume dives even deeper into that. The end is engaging and makes you want to pick up the next volume. The subplot of the job the crew gets into lost me a bit. Also, I thought there were points where the art was just slightly off, particularly in the depiction of Jayne. There was lots of fan Rounding up from 3.5/5.

There were points where it seemed they were leaning on it a little hard, and some of the standout mannerisms of the crew came off a bit mimicked rather than organic. Still, good start to the series from a writer new to it, and hopefully he hit his stride in the next volume.

    Read as single issues upon their release Greg Pak really gets these characters and get their voices right, but this arc of the story does not feel like an actual arc, it feels like part of an arc. The revelations regarding Mal's and Zoë's pasts are very vague and they are only referenced shortly during this fast-paced story. And the volume does not have a real ending when it comes to dealing with Boss Moon and the unificators - this story continues in the next volume, which makes it all the more Read as single issues upon their release Greg Pak really gets these characters and get their voices right, but this arc of the story does not feel like an actual arc, it feels like part of an arc.

And the volume does not have a real ending when it comes to dealing with Boss Moon and the unificators - this story continues in the next volume, which makes it all the more obvious that there is no reason (except for the earnings-related ones) to make a hardcover with issue 1-4, when they could have collected more issues. McDaid's art seem very rough and gets rougher throughout the four issues, to some it may fit the tone of these stories well, but I really don't appreciate his style.

    I am a Browncoat through and through and I reached for this graphic novel as anxiously as any other Firefly-related publication. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. This new graphic novel series ignores everything that happened in the Dark Horse comics, which messes with story continuity. I definitely didn't appreciate it. Worse still, I really disliked the art. None of the characters look like themselves (save for some of the cover alternates); in fact, sometimes they look like disjointed carica I am a Browncoat through and through and I reached for this graphic novel as anxiously as any other Firefly-related publication.

Worse still, I really disliked the art. None of the characters look like themselves (save for some of the cover alternates); in fact, sometimes they look like disjointed caricatures of themselves. There were actually several individual panels that were simply awful, where I couldn't even tell what was going on. Three stars only because at least the characters sound like themselves.

    Yes, I'll admit it. I'm a bit of a Browncoat. I watched the _Firefly_ DVDs on repeat while pacing the floor with my oldest child when he was just a colicky baby. Pak's comics have proven to be a very enjoyable way of engaging with these characters again. Fortunately, my local library makes them available via Hoopla so I can keep them on my phone for quiet moments I can steal from a busy day.

    I enjoyed this story with a very Firefly-esque plot and character decisions. I felt like some of the dialogue could have been paired down to be more true to the characters, and some of the art threw me off a bit. However, I plan to continue following this series.

    Picks up with the character introduced in the one-off Saffron origin story "Bad Company". Set sometime before Serenity. Mal and Zoe's past catches up with them. Makes me excited for future installments of this series.

    This was a huge disappointment, which is saying a lot for Firefly. The art in this series is terrible, the characters don't look like themselves. Also the characters don't act like themselves. I wish they had continued the Legacy storyline instead of this.
