    That guy who signs in every month to complain that Dark Horse isn't releasing this yet should be happy.

    We wanted to shift the style of the series with this and the Wash one-shot by Patton Oswalt and Patric Reynolds. We did great stuff with Will Conrad on the first two miniseries, but we wanted to take 'Serenity' in a bit of a more stylized direction, make a different kind of artistic statement with the styles[.]
    Frickin' SOLD. I tried to read the two minis, but found Conrad's art distracting -- I don't like the slavish attention to the actors' likenesses. I really like the preview pic in the article; he's identifiable as a young Book, but he's not Ron Glass.

    I'll probably wait for the paperback, but I'm looking forward to this very much.

    November is a long way off.

    I can't wait though.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer.

    And either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives.

    About damn time.

    Been waiting for this since before Better Days came out.

    Gorram it, November? That's a ruttin' long time to wait. Still, it should be great. Chris Samnee did great work on The Mighty, so I'm really looking forward to his art here.

    And Patton's one-shot should be good, too. I really wish the man had more time to write comics.

    Sweet!

    I've been anxiously awaiting the explanation of Book's past, so this is great! However, it also means that any further film treatment of the property is out, as this was meant to be the plot of a sequel, from what I understand.

    So, I'm bummed that we probably won't have any more Firefly movies, but the film was as good a send-off as one could've hoped for, and at least now the Shepherd's past will be delved into.

    So a , followed by & !!

    I actually quite liked Conrad's art, and I do wish that he was on art again (not a big fan of Samnee's simplistic art, but he can do emotion, which is always good).

    And actually, the Shepherd Book comic is a graphic novel, not a monthly, so no tradewaiting necessary.

I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it'll never come again.

    I just realized that this comic is going to be taking place before the War Of Unification. So may be we could see exactly who or what sparked it. I'm guessing it was probably some statesman or philosopher.

    I'm super excited about this. A Book book (hehe) is just what I'd like.
