Sheriff Mal VS Murder in Joss Whedon’s FIREFLY #14 From BOOM! Studios
BOOM! Studios, in collaboration with 20th Century Fox today unveiled a first look at Firefly #14 from New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak (Ronin Island), artist Lalit Kumar Sharma (Daredevil), colorist Francesco Segala (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), and letterer Jim Campbell (Coda), along with series creator & story consultant Joss Whedon (the visionary writer/director behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s The Avengers and more) continue the iconic worldwide pop culture phenomenon’s sold-out return to comic books. Available in stores February 2020.
Mal matches wits with a serial killer! The newly minted Sheriff Mal (don’t call him that, though) and Boss Moon are given their first big case as local law enforcement—to hunt down and arrest a serial killer haunting their new town! As Mal and Moon dig deeper into the mystery behind the suspicious murders, a surprising new benefactor strolls in, offering new technology and new beginnings for the townspeople…all courtesy of the Blue Sun corporation.
Firefly #14 features a main cover by Marc Aspinall (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), along with variant covers from artist Daniel Warren Johnson (Murder Falcon) with colors by Mike Spicer, and more.
Created by Whedon and set 500 years in the future in the wake of a universal civil war, Firefly centers on the crew of Serenity, a small transport spaceship that doesn’t have a planet to call home. Captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds, a defeated soldier who opposed the unification of the planets by the totalitarian governed Alliance, will undertake any job — legal or not — to stay afloat and keep his crew fed. Thrust together by necessity but staying together out of loyalty, these disparate men and women are seeking adventure and the good life, but face constant challenges on the new frontier, such as avoiding capture by the Alliance, and evading the dangers you find on the fringes of the universe.
Firefly #14 is available February 19th, 2020, exclusively in comic shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) or at the BOOM! Studios webstore. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Madefire.
Available now, Firefly: Legacy Edition Book One collects previously released Serenity comics for the first time under one cover in a new value-priced format as Mal & the crew ride again in these official sequels to the critically acclaimed Firefly television series and Serenity film.
