Boom! Studios and 20th Century Studios have announced Firefly: Blue Sun Rising, the first ever Firefly comic book event, which will see Mal and the crew taking on the Blue Sun Corporation, the shadowy organization that’s haunted their steps all along.
Sheriff Mal Reynolds has a new partner—a law-enforcing robot from the Blue Sun corporation, who doesn’t care about motives, mercy, or anything other than enforcing the law—no matter the cost. The Blue Sun Corporation has helped to run the ‘Verse from the shadows for years, but they’re ready to step into the light and take over.
If Mal wants to keep his job and protect his sector, he probably should play by their rulebook. That leaves only one choice for Mal —reunite the crew of the Serenity for one last impossible job to save the ‘Verse.
The event, from New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak (Darth Vader, Ronin Island), artist Dan McDaid (Firefly), along with series creator and story consultant Joss Whedon, will begin this September in Firefly: Blue Sun Rising #0 and run through issues #21-24 of the main Firefly series before concluding in Firefly: Blue Sun Rising #1.
