How Zoe Met Mal In “Firefly” Prequel Comic

Boom Studios has announced the launch of a new comic book series based on FOX’s sci-fi western series “Firefly” and set during the Unification War – an ongoing conflict which takes place before the events of the show and was only briefly touched upon in its narrative.

Show creator Joss Whedon serves as a story consultant on the new series penned by Greg Pak and illustrated by Dan McDaid and says in a statement: “It’s high time we got to see the full story of Mal and Zoe’s meeting and mission in the War of Unification – the good and bad that the pressure of war brings out in them, and the unforeseeable consequences.”

The series also marks a new era in Firefly comics as the license was previously held by Dark Horse. Boom is also releasing “Firefly: Legacy Edition” which collects several of the previous comics released by Dark Horse.
