Serenity: Better Days, from Joss Whedon and Brett Matthews, follows everyone’s favorite space cowboys in an action-packed adventure where the crew takes on a heist that promises a big payoff. But when someone is taken captive, the gang must put aside their enduring differences and work together, at the risk of losing their cash prize.
Joss Whedon is joined by a great roster of writers, including comedian Patton Oswalt, Dr. Horrible and The Shepherd’s Tale cowriter Zack Whedon, and Jim Krueger (Avengers/Invaders), in this special expanded edition!
This volume includes the miniseries Serenity: Better Days, the short stories “Serenity: The Other Half” and the previously uncollected “Serenity: Downtime,” and the one-shot Serenity: Float Out.
Serenity: The Shepherd’s Tale (3.5/5 stars, currently priced at $6.99)
One of Serenity’s greatest mysteries is finally revealed in The Shepherd’s Tale, filling in the life of one of the show’s most beloved characters—Shepherd Book!
Who was Book before meeting Mal and the rest of the Serenity crew? How did he become one of their most trusted allies? And how did he find God in a bowl of soup? Answers to these and more questions about Book’s past are uncovered in this original graphic novel by rising stars Zack Whedon (Dr. Horrible, Terminator, Fringe) and Chris Samnee (Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps, Daredevil). A pivotal chapter in the ongoing Serenity saga, The Shepherd’s Tale is also a rollicking, action-packed epic in its own right!
