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.
Each and every week, I, “Can’t Stop the Signal,” Henchman21 and “Aiming to Misbehave” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of January 29, 2014. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.
It’s another week full of great comics and every company is bringing their A game. With all these great books, there’s plenty of us to choose from. We’ve got some DC, some Marvel, some Dark Horse, some Image, and even some manga for you today, so let’s take another journey into the ‘verse on this week’s GoD List!
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.
