Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 9, Vol. 1 reviewBuffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9: Library Edition, Vol. 1

Illustrated by Georges Jeanty, Karl Moline, and Cliff Richards

Release Date: January 14, 2015
Cover Price: $29.99

The classic slayer wit and charm returns in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9: Library Edition, Volume 1. After an epic, yet fairly disappointing story-arc in season 8, Joss Whedon, Andrew Chambliss, Georges Jeanty, and a small group of other talented writers and artists have recaptured the allure and excitement that made Buffy, well…Buffy!

Season 9 has been available for a while now — with season 10 already in the middle of its run — but if you haven’t had the chance to check it out yet, the Library Edition, Volume 1 is the perfect place to start. Collecting the first and second volumes of the ninth season, as well as a couple of one-shots, there is a plethora of scoobie mischief to take a stab at all at once.

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.

The second installment of Serenity: Leaves On The Wind, written by Zack Whedon with art by Georges Jeanty, sets the stage for the overall plotline in this comic book arc. It introduces a new enemy to be reviled, as Commander Rodgers replaces The Operative from the movie and appears to be more of a military resource then an Agent assassin. Though at the moment, Rodgers doesn’t appear to have a better plan than his predecessor.

The real excitement in this installment is the return of everyone’s favorite bounty hunter since Boba Fett: Jubile Early. Complete with his cool red armor and peculiar speech patterns, Jubile Early demonstrates why he is the most formidable enemy the Serenity crew encountered during Firefly‘s all too brief run on television. If there is any disappointment to be found it is in the fact that Jubile’s plan hasn’t changed at all either. You can argue that his technique is successful but over all, Serenity isn’t showing us anything new. Same evil government, same evil plan, rehash best villain.

Dark Horse: Serenity - Leaves on the Wind #1 cover by Dan Dos SantosSerenity: Leaves On The Wind #1

Picking up right after the events of the film Serenity, Serenity: Leaves On The Wind finds the Firefly ‘verse in turmoil over the revelation that the Alliance created the cannibalistic Reavers. Mal and the crew of the Firefly class ship Serenity are laying low, though. Despite their victory over the Alliance, they are deeply injured by losses of their own. But with the ‘verse ready to once again challenge the power of the Alliance, a leader is needed… and that leader is Captain Mal. If he can be found.

Comic book spin-off series are always a scary venture for fans. Beloved properties are often mistreated and bland versions of the universes they present. Dark Horse, however, has pulled together a fantastic team for Serenity: Leaves On The Wind and this title feels like a true follow-up to Joss Whedon’s Firefly television series and Serenity film.

‘Firefly’ Story To Continue In New Dark Horse Comic Set After ‘Serenity’

Serenity Comic

Fans have been fighting for more Firefly since the show was canceled far too prematurely by Fox. We’ve seen a movie, Serenity, and various comics released focusing on the characters Joss Whedon created and their origins or bridging the TV series to the movie.

While the fight to see the TV series return (or at the very least a couple of straight-to-video movies) continues, a new Serenity comic is on the way from Dark Horse that will offer something fans have not seen since the movie, and that is a continuation of the story.

Keep reading for more on where the story picks up (spoilers if you’ve not yet watched…in which case why?!) and to see a couple of preview images from the new comic.
