"Serentiy" on-going from Dark Horse comics

You can't stop the signal nor can you take the sky from me!

Finally! I'd rather have a live-action continuation, but that seems like a pipe dream at this point.

The series will be set post-"Serenity" with River at the helm and Zoe very pregnant.

The writer hasn't been announced yet, but Season 8-9 "Buffy" artist Georges Jeanty will be handling the art.

Sweet. I'm glad that Georges Gatry is doing the art.

Re: "Serentiy" on-going from Dark Horse comics

This makes me very very happy. I've been hoping someone would do some kind of a follow up to the movie since it came out.
If this comes out in the next few months, then there's a good chance it might be the first ongoing series I follow every month from the start.

Re: "Serentiy" on-going from Dark Horse comics

Good for them and maybe they'll come up with some good stories and humor but even as a die hard Browncoat it will never be able to replace the deadpan expressions of Tudyk or Fillion or any of the other million things just humans can do and you can't in the written/drawn medium.

We got what we got and it's more than some other premature cancelled shows got so whip out the boxes once in a while and watch an episode for old time's sake while simultaneously getting mad at Fox again.

It's tradition you know!

Is the Buffy comic over with then? I've been collecting Season Nine without reading it and I know the "season finale" just came out. Is that the end of the run? No spoilers please.

Re: "Serentiy" on-going from Dark Horse comics

This sounds cool. As much as I loved the Buffy TV show, i've never followed the comics that continue it. I'm worried that the comic just won't live up to the show, especially since Joss Whedon doesn't seem to be the writer of 90% of the comics set after it (and I have no desire to read a Bufy comic without Whedon). I did check to see if they ever gave Angel an actual ending (that show was amazing but it had the worst ending for a show that wasn't just suddenly cancelled, atleast surprise cancellation would have explained that cliffhanger) but it was just basically everyone being dead, except Angel and Spike, and just a lot of stupid stuff happening. That just made me not want to check out Buffy Season 8 (and Season 9, etc) even more.

I'l definately be on the look out for this, though. I liked the serenity comics they've released before, and this is definately something I want to see.

Re: "Serentiy" on-going from Dark Horse comics

While Joss doesn't always write the comics, he's still very much involved in the plotting and essentially dictates the plots to the editor and writers IIRC.

Yeah, Joss is still "showrunner" on the comics, even if he doesn't actually write the scripts.

This part of your statement makes me think that you only read the pre-"After the Fall" Angel comics, which did NOT have Joss' involvement. They are NOT post-series canon. "After The Fall", which was based on Joss' plot for Angel season 6, and the comics that followed, superseded those comics and ARE part of the post-series canon. In these books, Angel and Spike are not the only survivors, in fact Gunn and Conner showed up in Angel and Faith, and Illyria is an important part of Buffy season 9.

Re: "Serentiy" on-going from Dark Horse comics

I have to say I'm not sure how I feel about this. If this happened 8 or so years ago, I would be very excited. But now, much to my shock, I've managed to move on. Doesn't help that two of the previous efforts Firefly made in the comic world didn't impress me (including the origin story for Book that didn't work for me at all).

Re: "Serentiy" on-going from Dark Horse comics

The Book story sucked, very little sense there. But I still enjoyed the other comics, some nice art and story if nothing earthshaking.

THIS IS VERY EXCITING!

Re: "Serentiy" on-going from Dark Horse comics

I've skipped the previous mini-series, because I knew sooner or later we would get an ongoing or "season two". It's going to be interesting to see where Joss takes this next as well as who the writer will turn out to be. I'm guessing we'll find out at NYCC in a couple weeks or so.

Re: "Serentiy" on-going from Dark Horse comics

If he weren't so busy with the MCU I'd wonder if it was Joss himself.
The fact that they're withholding the name makes me think it'll be someone fans will be excited about.

Or it could simply be that the writer's contract/paperwork hasn't been finalized yet for some reason.
