I know there is a huge following of Firefly and Serenity and fans have been waiting patiently for Leaves On the Wind since the last series, It’s Never Easy, was released almost two years ago. So I am only a little bit familiar with Serenity but well aware of its mega fandom; however, Leaves On the Wind is perfect for anyone interested in Sci-Fi and will enjoy this issue whether they are loyal fans or just catching on to the series. So I don’t want to spoil too much but let me just say that Zach Whedon nailed the script and surpassed my expectations with the storytelling. For me, the first issue of a series is the most significant in convincing me to jump into another unhealthy addiction, I mean you know how it is, fan-fictions, memes, and hunting down variant prints and so far my first impression is that this is going to lead to adding Serenity to my pull list and Netflix it to do cross analysis. Anyways let me introduce the cast: Malcolm and his crew River, Kaylee and Zoe are just some to mention. The crew is bound to face some obstacles in the next five issues and who knows maybe we will even see them going head to head with the alliance.
If the fandoms aren’t peeing their pants already then they definitely will when they find out that the artist for Buffy, Georges Jeanty will also be working on Serenity. Jeanty doesn’t disappoint and throws the audience into the Sci-Fi world that is Serenity. I love the ways Jeanty utilizes hues of blues to capture outer space views. Some scenes are definitely print worthy. There’s just so much I am excited about in this issue that I want to tell you guys about but I got to keep it hush-hush, all I can say is Serenity is priority.
