Firefly may have long been cancelled, but it's the gift that keeps on giving. A series that's gone on to live far beyond it's short run, that still for many fans holds a special 'shiny' place in their heart, as this new picture book goes to show.
Firefly: Back from the black takes our beloved Serenity crew and places them on earth-that-was, where we wonder how the crew would have got on. Depicted in often hilarious scenarios that tie in perfectly with in-jokes and beloved memorable scenes from the series.
As each character plays out whimsical flights of fancy, lovingly illustrated by author Joey Spiotto, with a series of scenes throughout the book that bring a new light-hearted amusing feel to our favourite characters. From scenarios that could have been plucked straight out of an episode, to scenes that would have been a perfect fit in the Firefly universe.
Ever wondered how Wash came to loose that 'tache, or how Jayne would react upon seeing his infamous heroic statue in a less than stellar state? How about a life class with Mal himself as the subject, or River as a psychic poker champ? Firefly : Back from the black brings together a whole showcase of scenarios that could have been in an amusingly cute and entertaining collection that fans will just adore.
You'll look at your favourite characters in a whole new light with this book, as page after page unveils a new illustration that's even more entertaining than the last – you'd never have imagined witnessing Reavers taking in afternoon tea, or seeing Mal being crowned as Miss Universe!
You may even need to look more than twice at some of the pages to unveil some rather amusing puns that will certainly tickle your funny bone, providing fans with some much needed light relief.
With over 70 illustrations laid out throughout the book it's a great addition to any bookshelf that goes to show that there's still very much room for growth in the Firefly universe - besides we all needed to see Wash soaring as a leaf on the wind.
