Before you get too excited, no, Netflix is not thinking about bringing Firefly back from the dead…not yet, at least. This is strictly speculative, but it also makes a hell of a lot of sense when you think about it. And fans will indeed think about it.
Comic book (Push, The Highwaymen) and TV (Alphas) writer Marc Bernardin made the case on his Tumblr page, Phenomenaut Aerospace, that none other than Netflix should step up and become the savior that Firefly fans have been desperately waiting for. The reasoning is not without base, either.
During Memorial Day weekend (May 27-29, 2011), Comicpalooza held its 4th annual multi-genre convention at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX. I attended the first two days of this three-day convention. First of all, this was my first big convention in Texas and the layout of the convention center was massive. The whole convention took place on the 3rd level of this massive convention center.
The highlights of the convention for me were the opportunities to interact with comic creators, comic fans, and celebrities. I spent a short amount of time on Friday observing the entire Con floor and chatting with various artists and writers in Artist Alley. I also checked out a few things in the Dealers Room. Before leaving for the day, I sat in on panel with comic writer Chris Roberson (I-Zombie), Fred Van Lente (Marvel Zombies), and Brian Denham (Zombie Fairy Tales) on a panel titled Comics & Zombies. By the name of the panel, you can guess what was discussed.
