The third installment of Serenity: Leaves on the Wind builds upon the foundation of issues one and two, and launches the series into full action mode.

The comic begins by bringing readers inside of River Tam’s clear and imaginative mind in her induced coma state. Combing her own mind for Alliance secrets, River has a startling vision, revealing new information about her time in captivity.

Meanwhile, mercenary Jubal Early makes his way around Serenity, quietly taking prisoners and attempting to take control of the ship. To the delight of all Kaylee fans, the adorable grease monkey shows she has more than just mechanical skills. With resources running low and Inara taking care of baby Emma while Zoe is imprisoned by the Alliance, Captain Mal attempts to make vital decisions, while keeping the weight of them to himself.

Seeing Inara and Mal make a real effort at a romantic relationship is truly intriguing. With the back-and-forth that occurred both in the Firefly television series and the Serenity film, the growth of this normal relationship in an abnormal situation is a contrasting respite that I think all fans will appreciate.

Georges Jeanty‘s art plays with perspective in all the right ways; choosing when to scale back and portray a vast, quiet hallway or when to cut close to a character’s expression. Fans will be pleased with intricately drawn beloved settings on Serenity such as the dining room and table where the group regularly gathers together. Jeanty has captured the essence of each character while still maintaining a personal flair throughout the comic.

Zack Whedon writes familiar characters impeccably, while introducing unique new additions who are still very true to the “˜verse. Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #3 is a true continuation of both the film and the first two comic issues, satisfying the fan in me who has desperately wished to know what would happen next in the story for years. With multiple plot twists and a surprise ending showing Mal asking for help in a most unexpected place, Whedon keeps his readers guessing.

Serenity: Leaves on the Wind is getting better and better with each issue and I would highly suggest you get onboard.
