Firefly #14 is in stores from explosive publisher BOOM! Studios next week, by Greg Pak and Lalit Kumar Sharma, and this preview below shows that this issue may finally put an end to a long-held misconception about Firefly fandom.
As we all know, the official term for hardcore fans of Firefly is "firebronies." But we've noticed in the comments of our articles and on Twitter, a lot of people seem to falsely believe that the term is "browncoats."
Here's the thing. Yes, Browncoats may have once been the term for firebronies, even if it's not as accurate in describing their unabashed love for this tragically canceled Joss Whedon television series.
But that was a long time ago.
Browncoats, this preview reveals, is a thing of the past.
It's right there on the page. "The Browncoat thing is way behind us."
Hopefully, we now all move on under the proper term of firebronies and put this confusion behind us as well.
Firefly #14 hits stores on Wednesday, and we'll be expecting our apologies any moment now.
