    Terrible art and a worse story. Through four issues they don't properly introduce any of the 'new' characters, they steal plot points and gags left and right from better sci-fi works, and end up with a 'shocking' reveal that no one wanted or asked for. The only reason I keep coming back is that A) I'm not spending any of my own money on this dreck, and B) Train-wrecks are morbidly fascinating. Terrible art and a worse story.

The writing isn't great and is completely void of the character of the show. Greg Pak tries to put too much in any given spot, instead of pacing it. Like, we have pages of CAPTAIN Kaylee giving a speech to these bad guys, and extremely quick transition to getting the crew back together again to do an attack on a portal. Everyone is pretty stupid, from Kaylee allying with bounty hunters and trusting them especially with Leonard's ex, to Jayne So... Maybe three stars is harsh. Maybe it's generous.

Like, we have pages of CAPTAIN Kaylee giving a speech to these bad guys, and extremely quick transition to getting the crew back together again to do an attack on a portal. Everyone is pretty stupid, from Kaylee allying with bounty hunters and trusting them especially with Leonard's ex, to Jayne blowing up the portal they just went through. Stupid. But I kinda like what it could be, and they are trying to make it fit a new audience, and if it ends up connecting with the cliff hangar from Dark Horse, that would be awesome. I don't know if it does though. Dark horse was doing a great job, and I feel like Boom is just trying to make a quick buck instead of making this what it could be. I'm divided. Characters changed, but that could be because of events that forced them too - at the end of the day we have the same characters all acting out of character with little reason or development. Greg Pak just isn't a great writer, but he has a big part in this for some reason. I feel like Boom is real proud they have him. The only people who would buy this are serenity fans, but then they are trying to reach a new audience that doesn't really get serenity or comic books, so... It kinda has no audience. Then Wash was brought back for sentimentality, but not really, and it just makes it... unnecessary much like Leonard. Why bring back a dead character if all the old beloved characters have changed. And what about this new series that's coming with Emma? Stupid. The dark horse series ended with them gearing up for another war, this one ended with Mal pulling a 180 and going backwards. Same series or no? Wish they would clarify.

    Greg Pak's "Firefly: Return to Earth That Was, Part One" takes place after the events of the "Serenity" movie. In this story, we find the crew of Serenity, which is now Jayne Cobb and River Tam, being piloted by Kaylee Frye when their ship is overtaken by bounty hunters. Across the 'verse, at the same time, Zoe Washburne's crew, which includes herself, her daughter Emma, and Simon Tam, also come under fire by bounty hunters. From the bounty hunters, the crews of both ships discover that the Alli Greg Pak's "Firefly: Return to Earth That Was, Part One" takes place after the events of the "Serenity" movie.

Across the 'verse, at the same time, Zoe Washburne's crew, which includes herself, her daughter Emma, and Simon Tam, also come under fire by bounty hunters. From the bounty hunters, the crews of both ships discover that the Alliance has created a tech marvel that can spell their doom. While I love seeing my favorite characters again, and though I'm thoroughly enjoying this plot, the dialogue of the characters in this story doesn't seem to match the characters from the original TV series or the Serenity movie, which takes away from the authenticity of the story. Also, the exiled former leader trope feels a little tired to me after having watched "The Last Jedi" and "Revenge of the Sith". Going forward, I'd like to see authors really dive into their source material so they can deliver an experience that allows readers to get lost in their favorite worlds.
