It’s been a little more than two years since BOOM! Studios took over the Firefly comics license from Dark Horse Comics.  Since then BOOM! has offered up the twelve-part Unification War story arc, a second twelve-part New Sheriff in the ‘Verse arc in compilation editions (Vol. 1Vol. 2, and Blue Sun Rising so far), and the one-shots The Sting and Watch How I Soar BOOM! has also followed Marvel Comics’ template after acquiring Star Wars and is reprinting the Dark Horse classics in new omnibus “Legacy” editions.  For its next series BOOM! is shooting ahead 20 years, long after the crew of the Serenity has departed, and the ship is now captained by someone entirely new:  Emma, the child of Wash and Zoe.  Meet the same ‘Verse in different time periods–the future and a look to Earth before the TV series–in the new six-part series Firefly: Brand New ‘Verse Can there really be a Firefly without Jayne?  Find out in this new series.

Check out a preview of the first issue, and some variant and future covers in the series below.

The story, written by Josh Lee Gordon with artwork by Fabiana Mascolo, finds Emma working to prove herself to Zoe, alongside a new crew of misfits making their way in the spacefaring world of the short-lived TV series and handful of Firefly tie-in novels from Titan Books.  With Blue Sun Corporation on the tail of Serenity, Emma is trying to impress her mom, and looks to Kaylee and Simon for help–so the comics are not really departing entirely from the old crew.
