BOOM! Studios Announces FIREFLY: THE STING Graphic Novel

This November, Firefly fans are in for a treat. BOOM! Studios has announced a new graphic novel called Firefly: The Sting, which is to be written by Delilah S. Dawson, the New York Times bestselling author. Pius Bak and Rodrigo Lorenzo will be providing art for the comic which will feature the women of Firefly teaming up with Saffron for a heist.

Saffron — the enigmatic rogue who captured the hearts of Firefly fans worldwide, as well as the heart of Captain Malcolm Reynolds — returns to the Serenity. But this time, she’s got no time for Mal, as she’s there to recruit the women of the ship to join her on a heist that has personal stakes for all involved. The cunning grifter joins forces with Zoë, Inara, Kaylee, and River to pull off the greatest theft in all the ‘verse! What could possibly go wrong?

Dawson released a statement about what sparked the story idea for The Sting:

‘A him gets noticed, a her gets ignored.’ That’s the quote from Ocean’s 8 that really captured my imagination. I love that idea—that women can use our occasional invisibility as a superpower. I’ve been a Firefly fan since I saw Serenity in the theater in 2005 and rushed out to buy the DVD set that night, and it’s been a pure joy cracking open each of these unique, powerful women to see what she desires, what she fears, and how far her loyalty to Mal can stretch. Have you ever wondered what Zoë, Kaylee, Inara, and River would do without a single man in the picture? Thanks to Saffron’s wiles (and threats), you’re about to find out.

I’m very interested in this graphic novel. I’ll probably try picking up The Sting when it releases November 2019.
