A New Firefly/Serenity Comic Series Is Coming in 2016
This is probably not the revival that most Browncoats are hoping for, but we'll take what we can get. The Firefly gang will return in a new Serenity comic book series coming out next year from Dark Horse Comics.

Dark Horse editor Scott Allie previewed that new Serenity comics were in the works during Joss Whedon's SDCC panel, saying, "In the last year we've said we want to bring more 'Serenity' comics out," and adding that an outline had been approved and Buffy the Vampire Slayer artist Georges Jeanty was on board to illustrate. Of course, that news was somewhat overshadowed by the news of Joss Whedon's upcoming female-centric comic, Twist, and by multiple fans bursting into tears when they got to the microphone for the Q&A.

But now, the new series has been confirmed in the newest issue of Angel and Faith, which also announced a release date of 2016. The as-yet-untitled series will serve as a follow-up to Serenity: Leaves on the Wind, which came out last year to positive fan reception. It was the first Serenity series that was not written by Joss Whedon, but by his brother, Zack, who has also written for cult shows like Fringe and Deadwood, and co-wrote Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.
