Dark Horse have announced a new 6 issue Serenity comic set after the film. Serenity: No Power in the ‘Verse will be written by iZombie co-creator, Chris Roberson and drawn by returning artist Georges Jeanty. The story will pick up about 18 months after the events of Serenity: Leaves on the Wind.
Speaking to EW, Roberson said of the project, “I thin that it’s the characters and their relationships first and foremost that keeps people coming back for more, followed pretty closely by the richness of the setting and the backstory. There’s just so much to explore.
“The characters have been busy in the meantime [since Leaves on the Wind],” Roberson continued. “They’re just wrapping a job when they get a call from an old friend who is in desperate need of their help, and things get complicated pretty quickly.”
As the title suggests, No Power in the ‘Verse will be fairly River centric. River plays a pretty central role in this story, in more ways than one,” Roberson confirms. “She’s really come into her own as the pilot of Serenity, for one thing, but now that Zoe’s daughter Emma is toddling around on her own by this point, River is always on hand to help look after her as well. But the Alliance is still hunting for River, which is going to continue to put the rest of the crew in the crosshairs.”
The issue will go on sale 26 October.
