BOOM! Studios Unveils A First Look at FIREFLY #2

FIREFLY #2

The Next Chapter of Joss Whedon’s Sci-Fi Epic Arrives In Stores December 2018

BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at FIREFLY #2, arriving in comic book shops on December 19th. New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak (Star Wars, Mech Cadet Yu) and artist Dan McDaid (Judge Dredd), along with series creator & story consultant Joss Whedon (the visionary writer/director behind Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s The Avengers, and more) continue the iconic worldwide pop culture phenomenon’s return to comic books in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products. 

The untold story of the Unification War continues as the crew of the Serenity is stranded on an outer moon, with a price on their heads from the Unificators, mercenaries deputized to hunt down war criminals …and that’s the good news. As the darkest secret of Mal and Zoe’s past is revealed, the crew must choose sides as an important new character makes their historic first appearance. War can make villains of even the best men, and Mal’s quest for redemption will force him to make a choice: fix the past or fight for the future. 

FIREFLY #2 features a main cover by Lee Garbett (Skyward), along with variant covers by Garbett, Joe Quinones (America) and Marguerite Sauvage (Archie).

“We’ve only seen hints of what Mal and Zoe did during the Unification War in the past. This the issue where we learn the secret Mal has been carrying with him all these years, the decision he made that set them on the path to being war criminals,” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “As they strip away illusions about the past, The Unificators will also have a huge impact on the future of the crew – starting with the first appearance of their leader, who’ll play a key role in this series.”

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. Captain Malcolm "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. 

FIREFLY #2 is available December 19, 2019 exclusively in comic shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.

Available now, Firefly: Legacy Edition Book One collects previously released Serenitycomics for the first time under one cover in a new value-priced format as Mal & the crew ride again in these official sequels to the critically acclaimed Firefly television series and Serenity film.

And no fan can miss the limited edition FIREFLY BIG DAMN HEROES BOX, on sale November 28th and including:
  • All 8 of the original, unsigned Firefly #1 covers
  • BOX SET EXCLUSIVE variant from Tula Lotay (Supreme: Blue Rose)
