It’s official, after MANY years Dark Horse Comics has lost its rights to publish comics based in the world of Serenity and Firefly the sci-fi series created by Joss Whedon. Boom! Studios has bought up that license thanks to a deal with FOX, which I’m pretty sure happened before the whole merger with Disney. Thankfully, because I would rather see a company like Boom! get this over Marvel. I’m getting a little tired of the big two swallowing everything up.
While I’m sure that most of you have read the comics from Dark Horse and most of them have dealt with what happens after everything, Boom! has hired Greg Pak (Action Comics) and Dan McDaid (Jersey Gods) to write/draw the book slated for November. Joss Whedon was quoted when it came to the new series that will cover the history of ‘The Unification War’:
“It’s high time we got to see the full story of Mal and Zoe’s meeting and mission in the War of Unification – the good and bad that the pressure of war brings out in them, and the unforeseeable consequences.”
