BOOM! Studios appears to be banking on Firefly #1 being a huge success and to get more people interested in picking up the book, the publisher has announced a Joe Quinones Firefly #1 variant cover.
Acclaimed artist Joe Quinones (America, Captain Marvel) puts Captain Malcolm “Mal” Reynolds front and center on a special variant cover to FIREFLY #1, to celebrate the all new series revealing the definitive story of the Unification War — the intergalactic civil war that divided friend and family alike. New York Times best-selling writer Greg Pak (World War Hulk, Mech Cadet Yu) and artist Dan McDaid (Judge Dredd), along with series creator & story consultant Joss Whedon (the visionary writer/director behind Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Marvel’s The Avengers and more) delve into the secret history of Firefly that fans have demanded for years!
“Joe beautifully captures a key truth about Firefly – that the crew of Serenity may be led by Mal, but he wouldn’t be the person he is without the women who fight alongside him every day,” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios in a press release to Major Spoilers. “Firefly has always been about found family and the small dramas that take place between members of the crew, and those are the building blocks here, even as we go back in time and show their origins.”
Firefly #1 is scheduled to arrive on November 14, 2018.
