BOOM! Releasing Boxset With All Eight Firefly #1 Variants

Beats having to get them on eBay later, I guess.

BOOM! Studios is pushing its launch of Firefly comics hard with the announcement of the Firefly Big Damn Heroes Box. At a highly exclusive limited 1000 copies, the boxset containsa ll 8 of the original, unsigned FIREFLY #1 covers from artists Lee Garbett, Jock, Bill Sienkiewicz, Joe Quinones, and the Blank Sketch Variant, an exclusive variant from Tula Lotay, Firefly Legacy Edition Book One with a BOX SET EXCLUSIVE variant cover from Rahzzah, and an exclusive Firefly print from Dylan Todd, 50 of which will be signed by Joss Whedon.

Created by Whedon and set 500 years in the future in the wake of a universal civil war, FIREFLY centers on the crew of Serenity, a small transport spaceship that doesn't have a planet to call home. Mal Reynolds, a defeated soldier who opposed the unification of the planets by the totalitarian governed Alliance, will undertake any job — legal or not — to stay afloat and keep his crew fed. Thrust together by necessity but staying together out of loyalty, these disparate men and women are seeking adventure and the good life, but face constant challenges on the new frontier, such as avoiding capture by the Alliance, and evading the dangers you find on the fringes of the universe.

Mal thought he could outrun his past, but when a simple mission goes wrong, he's forced to confront it in the form of the Unificators, mercenaries deputized to hunt down war criminals...and they've got Mal and Zoe at the top of their list! War can make villains of even the best men, and Mal's quest for redemption will put him at odds with his own crew, forcing him to make a choice: fix the past or fight for the future.

Firefly #1 is set to release November 14, 2018. Releasing the same day is Firefly Legacy Edition Book One, collecting previously released Serenity comics in one volume.
