The issues I have with the story: (Spoiler alert#
1) In Firefly we find out that Inara is going to leave Serenity. In "Those left behind", we see that happen. In Serenity we see Inara is gone, but comes back, possibly to stay? That's the open ended story thus far. But at the beginning of Leaves on the Wind, Mal and Inara are suddenly together. If there's is anything in Firefly that I most want to see.. is the moment where Mal and Inara finally express their true feelings for each other and come together. We didn't get to see that in Serenity, and we don't get to see it here, it's already happened and it's just thrown at us. Maybe I'm biased on the topic of Mal and Inara, but this is unacceptable. There was nothing in this new story arc that required Mal and Inara to be together. Had they not been shown in this manor, it would not have changed the story at all. I would rather had them just shown some near misses of them getting together, only to be thwarted by stubbornness, than to have them have come together "off screen". The story would have been served better to keep them apart and leave us waiting for that story, than to show them together without showing us how it happened.
2# I more or less have to take this story as what "might have come" had the series not been canceled.Read more ›
I for one am looking forward to what the next 5 issues will bring, and I'm ready to order the hard-bound version once that comes out.
Having said that, onto more technical things about this comic specifically:
1.) I wish the rest of the art was half as good as the cover art. Maybe the characters are drawn intentionally NOT to look like the actors who portrayed them but why would they do that? there is a passing (heavy on the passing) resemblance but continuity of art is so lax here that some characters look different in almost every panel. why does simon tam look like neil patrick harris? inara looks pretty good in c.u.'s but the rest of the time, she could be anybody (especially with her change in attire - why does she look like she's preparing to play football?). kaylee looks all sorts of wrong. body proportions are all over the place. I am super disappointed in the art for this caliber of publication. just let dan dos santos do the whole thing. ugh.
2.) the coloring is amazing. it sets the mood wonderfully and does more to illuminate the characters than the actual drawing of the characters. The paneling is creative and does well to tell the story at a good pace.
3.) Uh, what just happened with Mal and Inara? In a way, I can understand the suddenness of it because of all they went through together. It sorta makes sense. But for someone who 'shipped them hardcore (I know I am not the only one), it would have been great to get some kind (any kind) of lead up to it. I am not unhappy that it happened...on the contrary...Read more ›
