Also confirmed via CBR, the series will pick up where the 2005 film ended with Mal and the crew recouping from their recent strike against the sinister interplanetary government, The Alliance, in which they exposed government agencies as those responsible for the creation of the Reavers — the scourge of the universe. With River Tam in the co-pilot chair and a very pregnant Zoe reeling from the death of her husband, Wash, Mal is finding himself and his ship in greater danger than ever.
When asked about what to expect from the visual side of the comics, Jeanty said,
“I’m looking at a lot of other sci-fi stuff. Artist Mobius is a big inspiration, along with Geof Darrow. Walt Simonson on ‘Alien’ is a good thing to keep handy. Also, movies like ‘Blade Runner,’ ‘Outland,’ ‘Alien’ — anything with a rustic futuristic feel. I have a very small window to master these characters, and I’ll probably be finished with the series before I get there!”
So what do we make of this latest Serenity news then?
