So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave.

Oh Captain! My Captain!  Malcolm Reynolds was a beast.  Quick witted, fiercely loyal, and an everyman outlaw.  For Firefly fans, Malcolm Reynolds IS the captain.  And for those of us who are still left pining for more adventures on Serenity, luckily there is a pretty awesome comic book/graphic novel series penned by the Whedon brothers.

All four volumes really felt like a true extension of the story.  Additional episodes.  Flashbacks and continuations of a story that is most beloved.  I'm gushing a bit.  You'll just have to get over that :)  The series starts before the movie.  To avoid any unwanted spoilers (even though if you're unfamiliar at this point, shame on you!) all cast members are present.  There's a bit more context, some additional background which is a lot of fun to discover.  As the series continues, we move past the last episodes and the movie into new territory which is bittersweet but awesome.

And to top it all off, cast members have written blurbs about their Firefly memories, and who doesn't want to just sit around all day and listen to Nathan Fillion tell you why he loved the series so much?

Hopefully your local library has purchased these for you to snatch up.  If not, and if you're a fan, head on down to your community comic book store!

Oh!  And just in case you haven't seen this yet...

Who's excited?  This girl!
