Your First Look at the Shiny New Crew in ALL-NEW FIREFLY #1

Discover the Unexpected Revelations in an ALL NEW Series

BOOM! Studios revealed today a first look at ALL-NEW FIREFLY #1, the premier issue of the new ongoing series by rising star writer David M. Booher (Canto) and artist Jordi Pérez (Queen of Bad Dreams), colorist Francesco Segala with color assistance by Gloria Martinelli, and letterer Jim Campbell, kickoff an all-new, shiny direction for the crew of the Serenity coming to the ‘verse in February 2022!

Welcome to the All New Firefly, now complete with the SHINIEST Captain in the ‘Verse . . . Kaylee Frye! Captain Kaylee leads the crew on a heist that proves too much for their moral code, but when mercenaries steal the relics anyway, it turns into a recovery mission. Meanwhile, unexpected revelations about Jayne’s family and past further complicate things. But how will Jayne’s past collide with the crew’s desperate present, especially when it leads them to steal from… not the thieves den they had in mind…

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 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 ‘verse.

ALL-NEW FIREFLY #1 features main cover art by acclaimed illustrator Mona Finden (Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance) and variant cover art by fan favorite artists Ethan Young (Space Bear), DANI (The Low, Low Woods) and Brad Simpson, Dan Mora (Once & Future), and Junggeun Yoon (Magic, Mighty Morphin).
