Greg Pak and Dan McDaid bring FIREFLY to comics this November!

Did I mention I’m writing the new FIREFLY comic book series? I’m writing the new FIREFLY comic book series!

FIREFLY debuts in November, published by BOOM and based on the beloved Joss Whedon sci fi television show, with pencils by Dan McDaid!

I grew up in Texas in the ‘70s and ‘80s, so I’ve always loved the sci fi stories and the Westerns that are so essential to the show’s vibe. I’ve also got a huge affection for stories that embrace quirky relationships and humor but dig deep into real, high stakes emotional storytelling at the same time. In fact, I think that’s probably why my awesome editor Jeanine Schaefer pulled me on board — we had an absolutely tremendous time a few years back telling anything-goes stories about a group of misfits traveling through space and time  in the X-TREME X-MEN book, which feels like great prep for our new adventure.

The book’s been an absolute blast to work on so far — can’t wait to show you more!
