A fantastic read, wonderful artwork, truly a book for any collector, appreciator, or fan of comics, Firefly, or Joss Whedon.
Vincent Minnucci
What I didn't like in a lot of ways was this book, however, and perhaps that was because much of it was overly simplistic.

I got hold of this 3-issue TPB after reading the recent mini-series "Better Days" (also from Dark Horse). I was surprised reading the reviews of this collection that fans were disappointed.

"Those Left Behind" is far superior to "Better Days." As other reviewers commented, reading this one is like watching the show. You also see things that they may not have been able to pull off on the show (Zero-G, space graveyard). I also liked elements here that I've wondered about: what about rival merc teams? How close was Kaylee getting Simon where she wanted him? How do Book and Inara end up off the ship?

Ultimately, this was a satisfying read. Unbelievably better than "Better Days" (which should be avoided). Also, the covers and variant covers by various top-of-the-field artists, in addition to the great interior art -- all of it is just purty.

This graphic novel based off the defunct T.V. show Firefly. It takes place somewhere in between the series and the movie Serenity. So many good shows such as Joss Whedon's Firefly end too soon so I am a big fan of the fact that they continued the story in comic book form.

The intro by Nathan Fillion was brilliant. The art is amazing. Seeing all the characters I loved from the tv show and movie. To me it was set up like an another episode of the show. The art matches dialogue wonderfully.

I was not a big fan of bringing back the bad guy who should have been dead but I guess no one stays dead in Whedon comics. This comic also jumps into the world of Firefly that anyone who is not a fan reading may be confused. I believe it is strictly for fans.

I can not wait to read more graphic novels of Serenity. They are a joy to read.

This book very nicely bridges the gap between the lamentably short "Firefly" series and the movie "Serenity". It helps to fill in the missing story line as to why the Rev and Innara have left the ship prior to the start of the movie.

Again... not much more to say than, "Firefly." Catch up on what happened to the world's best TV show which was cancelled before it had a chance.

I just recently discovered firefly and serenity and fell in love with the story, the character and everything about it. I was very sad that it is over and was excited about the idea of reading this comic books.

The story, drawings and quality of this comic books it's amazing. he characters look and act like the ones in the tv shows and by the end of all the books I ended wanting more and more of them. I really hope they keep coming.

The western meets the ends of space - that's how I always pictured Firefly. You have technology that takes people to the ends of space, but those people that are there are just now starting up planets. That means every techno-city would have dozens of small farming planets just to support it. It also would have a large governing force, and that force would have HAD to have been challenged once upon a time. Enter our main man and his Browncoat ways, living on the edge of space so he can remina free. Add to that your motley crew of characters, the add-ons, and the strange things they run into along the way.
I have to say I like that.

What I didn't like in a lot of ways was this book, however, and perhaps that was because much of it was overly simplistic. Perhaps it didn't want to speak overly and bore or perhaps it didn't want to be anything but a highlight reel. whatever the case, it made parts of it not-so-fun when gone through. This hurt everything in its own way, with the impact of a bad story making the characters seem like paper and the world like the smae materials and - you get the picture.

The one thing I can say for the story is, looking at the show and it together, I do see a taste that started in here. This "beginning" is not a bad way to try to start out things either, but the way it was executed was flawed. I liked it in some ways and was conflicted as I sat down to talk about it, knowing that fans of the series would like this but that others might not want to even bother. So, here's the play (huddle up)

Look at some of the pictures provided. Pages are here, and breakdowns are here as well. If you like those, look briefly at the editorial and see if it sounds appeasing. If it does, you can always look at other stuff but, when you hit so many "good things," you might want to check on it. It isn't bad, per say, just not great.
Here's to choices.
