Several graphic novels have been released under the Serenity title, set in the fictional universe created for Joss Whedon’s Firefly television series. The comics, written by Joss Whedon and Brett Matthews (and illustrated by Will Conrad), create the bridge from the series to the film. Considered a space-western set 500 years in the future, this film features Captain Malcolm Reynolds and his crew as they take on any job that pays—even criminal assignments. Reynolds and his cast of colorful characters must protect their new psychic crewmate from “The Alliance,” while trying to discover her secret and why she’s wanted so badly. (35mm)
