ATTN Firebronies: Get Your First Look at Firefly #5 Right Here
Explosive publisher BOOM! Studios has unveiled a first look at Firefly #5, the latest comic book continuing the story from the cult-favorite Joss Whedon TV show that was canceled before its time. Despite that premature cancellation, Firefly has lived on by sheer force of will of its hardcore fans, who refer to themselves as Firebronies.
The next issue, by writer Greg Pak and artist Dan McDaid, with consulting by Whedon, is set to hit stores on April 24th, and features covers by Lee Garbett, Joe Quinones, W. Scott Forbes, and David Rubin. Here's some info on the comic from the press release:
Finally, the crew of the Serenity is back together again, ready to escape this gorram planet and never look back. There's just one problem—they left their captain behind! Mal's currently tied up on Boss Moon's shuttle headed straight for the closest Alliance outpost, where he'll have to sit trial for his war crimes and most likely hang for his actions during the Unification War. With Mal captured, a busted engine, and half the planet still on their tail, our favorite band of space thieves will have to pull a miracle out of thin air to reunite with their captain once again.
And a quote from BOOM! Executive Editor Jeanine Schaefer:
It's always a wild ride with the crew of Serenity, but they do leave a bit of a trail throughout the 'verse made up of people they've wronged and others who were collateral damage. Serenity is no stranger to grievances and murky pasts, but Mal and Zoe have always managed to pull their crew ahead of the trouble chasing them—until now. How do you escape from your own past?
Check out the preview below.

After the shocking conclusion of the last issue, Mal and Zoe must deal with the full consequences of their actions… and whatever else Boss Moon sees fit. But don't worry, the crew of the Serenity will come together once again… or will they?
