Dark Horse Comics confirmed at New York Comic Con plans to continue the cult classic story line directly following the film. With executive producer Joss Whedon behind the helm, the comic series is sure to have fans clamoring to check it out.
A friend and I were talking online recently about the number of “pulp heroes” getting their own new comics. “I want new stories and new characters, not these old guys and girls. Why can’t they come up with something new and different?”
The answer I gave him was one given to me by a sales expert I got to chat with once: Nostalgia sells!
Who here isn’t a fan of the Firefly series? Who wouldn’t want to have a chance to enjoy that universe just a little bit more?

Didn’t think we would be able to see the Firefly panel until November when the Science Channel airs it. Looks like Things From Another World received permission to record and post the panel for all to enjoy, so enjoy it now.
There is a really interesting Firefly panel going on this week at the San Diego Comic-Con, and while we wish we could be in the packed hall to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the show, the Science Channel has fans covered.
Joss Whedon, Tim Minear and the primary cast of Firefly are going to have a special 10 year anniversary panel at Comicon this year. Firefly is the premier panel for the three the Science Channel is planning for the July 12-15th weekend. Maybe we can get some interesting news about the future of the series.
