Yeaah we were excited when we first heard about the Firefly fan flic – Browncoats: Redemption.

AND yes we’re still excited now.

No this isn’t going to be a Joss Whedon classic – but it’s the only real action going on in the ‘verse now and we’ll be taking what browncoat goodness we can get – and be much obliged for it.

Firefly has been off the air and movie screens for years, but the fans keep asking for more.

A new book that just came out yesterday Firefly: Still Flying: A Celebration of Joss Whedon’s Acclaimed TV Series <– cheaper at Amazon than anywhere else we’ve seen)
give us some new insights into the show from the shows writers.

But the real bonus here is four new stories from the Firefly verse.

FUN WITH DICK AND JAYNE written and drawn by Ben Edlund

WHAT HOLDS US DOWN by Jane Espenson

CRYSTAL by Brett Matthews

TAKE THE SKY by Jose Molina

Anyone of these could have been episodes – as they were written by the same writers who wrote the show. Yeaah, we’re excited too.

FOX killed Firefly before it’s time …that’s a well known fact.

The Serenity movie was ok, but we want more, so we go some decent comics, but we still want more.

So the fans have stepped in and there is a fan flick currently under production that really has got our attention. NO this isn’t some low grade fan flick – this is slick stuff.

Good news Firefly/Serenity Fans! You don’t have to pay Dark Horse for the newest iteration of the Serenity comic..you can get if for free — online.

Serenity The Other Half is available for free on Dark Horse’s MySpace preview page it’s a short little story..but still entertaining.

Gorram Reaver are chasin Cap’n Mal and his pal who are tyring to deliver some human cargo..but River’s got a bad feeling about the dude…

In typical Serenity fashion, no one is really quite happy in the end.

No this isn’t quite as good as say Serenity Better Days but it is Firefly and it’s a good (short) read. There should be another Serenity full series out soon from Dark Horse though and we can hardly wait..

So this is how Better Days ends…in typical Firefly fashion it’s an ending that leaves as many question as it answers.

Yes this was a good series but this last issue had a few flaws….

Like who was that guy that got fired from his job and then went nuts shooting at Alliance and Dirt Devil alike?

That was just odd.

Then in the end they’re all ‘just good’ seems a little strange but then again that’s the quirkiness that makes Firefly interesting.

The ending of this little series just felt a little rushed but then again maybe that’s just cause we want more Firefly.

I can hardly wait till the next Firefly Serenity series is out later this year which should be a focus just on the Shepard.

 FOX’s cancellation of Firefly remains one of the greatest SciFi travesties of all time.

Dark Horse is working hard to help us…and Serenity : Better Days issues #2 is a great step.

Can a comic book recapture the glory that is Firefly?

The answer in this case is an emphatic


The characters are right.

The dialogue is right.

The plot is right

The art is right.

Everything is right about this book — except for the fact that it’s only a three issue mini-series!!!!!

It’s a better today Firefly fans, now that a new chapter is out.

Serenity : Better Days #1 hits comic book retailers today.

Yes it’s still a prequel to the Serenity movie..which of course means that Wash is still alive (hurray).

More importantly the Browncoats yet live and we the fans should rejoice that today is in fact a better day.

(we don’t have our copy yet but once we get it we’ll post a review on ShowMeSciFi.com)

Let’s face it – alot of fan fiction is puke. But what happens when that ‘fan-fiction’ is actually a failed proposal for an unproduced episode of Firefly?


That’s what Steven Brust’s Firefly book “My Own Kind of Freedom” is – brilliant. Burst originally wrote the book as a proposal for a Firefly tie-in back in 2005.

Beyond being a great read – it’s free.
