Fans will get to learn about Malcolm Reynolds and Zoe Alleyne Washburne, and their experiences in the war as the duo fought for the losing side. Fans will also be introduced to new characters and planets.“Our story will reveal key experiences for Mal and Zoe during the Unification War that you’ve never seen before," Greg Pak said, the comic's writer.
"And we’ll introduce entirely new corners of the star system with characters, organizations, and subcultures that are absolutely true to all the world-building you know but absolutely brand-new at the same time."
Dan McDaid will be handling the art and Joss Whedon, who created the original TV series, will serve as a consultant on the comic.
BOOM! will also be releasing Firefly Legacy Edition collections, which will collect previously published Firefly comics from Dark Horse Comics. Firefly #1 will be released this year in November.
