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.
Recently we found out that the new comic based on Joss Whedon’s Firefly being teased by Dark Horse would be the first storyline to take place after the events of the follow-up movie Serenity instead of before or during that time period, effectively progressing the story for the first time in a decade.
To kick off New York Comic-Con 2013, Dark Horse wanted to add a little to what we know about the comic, including an official title and who the mysterious writer would be.
