"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.
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.
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.
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.

My daughter loves it - best stories in the 'verse. Good quality book, nicely written. Perhaps the first of many....Published on November 21, 2013 by A.Shopper
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.Published on May 15, 2013 by Dan Gonzalez
