Today’s book recommendation is the Serenity: Those Left Behind graphic novel. This book belongs in the canon surrounding the wonderful TV show Firefly. For those that don’t know, Firefly was a TV show that ran from 2002 to 2003. It managed 14 episodes on FOX before it was cancelled. When the show was ended rather unfinished, Joss Whedon, its creator, decided to make a film to round it all off. This film was called Serenity after the ship Serenity of which the characters live and where most of the show was set.
Written by Joss Whedon and Brett Matthews this graphic novel contains a completely new story, never before seen, giving the firefly fans another chance to see their favourite characters; Mal, Zoe, Wash, Inara, Jayne, Kaylee, Simon, River and Shepherd in a new adventure. The graphic novel also has incredible art inside, based on the actors from the show, with whole page drawings.
I enjoyed the show and I enjoyed the graphic novel.
