Acclaimed writer/actor/comedian Patton Oswalt (The Goon, Batman, JLA, Dollhouse, Ratatouille) brings back one of Firefly’s most beloved characters in this special spotlight issue!
Always ready with a brilliant aerial maneuver and a terrible one-liner, Wash was pilot of the Firefly-class ship Serenity in Joss Whedon’s cult-classic TV series before being killed in the movie. Float Out includes three brand-new stories of Wash in a series of exciting smuggling raids, each providing a hair-raising escape or daring last-minute rescue! Featuring a cameo that will leave Serenity fans reeling, this special one-shot presents new tales of the Serenity universe’s past and tantalizing hints about its future!
Acclaimed writer/actor/comedian Patton Oswalt pens Serenity!
Then in November we FINALLY get the Shepherd Book miniseries! Comic Book Resources have a full confirmation here along with interviews with some of the people involved.
Four little titbits of information to tide you over till then.
Derrial Book is known for his biggest mistake.
Derrial is not his real name, he took that name from a man he killed.
A part of him is artificial.
He found God in a bowl of soup.
When we get the full solicitation for the miniseries, I'll post it here. Should be in September's Previews catalogue.
