Joss Whedon’s Brother Zack To Write ‘Serenity’ Mini-Series For Dark Horse

Serenity: Leaves On The Wind Cover

Buffy the Vampire Slayer came back as a comic, so why not Firefly?

Dark Horse Comics must have wondered the same thing, because that’s exactly what’s happening. The first issue of Serenity: Leaves on the Wind is set for release January 29. It’ll be written by Zack Whedon, brother of Joss Whedon and an accomplished screenwriter in his own right, and art will be by Georges Jeanty, who Whedonites will remember from the Buffy comics.

Though he had a conversation with his brother before diving into the series, Zack Whedon said he has crafted this story almost entirely on his own, with no meddling from Joss, who’s very busy making Avengers do things and working on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The story takes place about nine months after the events of the Serenity film, where it finds the crew of the ship on the lam.

Thursday’s announcement of the series is the culmination of a lengthy social media campaign using the #WheresSerenity hashtag.

In an interview with Nerdist, Zack Whedon said he wants to give fans what they’ve been waiting for. ”I know fans have been starving for story, so I don’t hold back in that regard,” he said.
