Although Joss Whedon’s acclaimed show Buffy the Vampire Slayer lasted for seven seasons, his follow-up — a space western called Firefly — was canceled after barely one. Luckily for fans, the series has lived on in other media, first in the 2005 sequel film Serenity and then in various Dark Horse comic series.
“I think that it’s the characters and their relationships first and foremost that keeps people coming back for more, followed pretty closely by the richness of the setting and the backstory,” comic writer and iZombie co-creator Chris Roberson tells EW. “There’s just so much to explore.”
Roberson is now getting his own chance to explore the world of Serenity with a new comic from Dark Horse, Serenity: No Power in the ‘Verse, illustrated by Georges Jeanty. Jeanty illustrated the previous Serenity comic, Leaves on the Wind, and No Power in the ‘Verse picks up about a year and a half after the conclusion of that storyline.
