Review by Homechicken
This was a great story. Not a follow-up to Those Left Behind, but a totally separate story where Mal and his crew pull a heist that ends up netting them millions of credits. There's also a revelation about Zoe's past that you can certainly believe in but don't expect. It was a fun story, and I hope there will be many more.
Review by Anome
I deliberately didn't buy this in issues when it came out because the cover illustrations disturbed me. Sadly, they are preserved as chapter headings in the trade paperback.As much as I like these characters, I didn't really find this story very satisfying. I think it may have suffered from Whedon's attention span, split between a new TV show, an internet show, Buffy, Angel, and Astonishing X-Men. Given the work he has been doing with Buffy and Astonishing, this should have been better. Maybe I need to read it again to get a better sense.
Review by ElizaJane
This graphic novel takes place sometime during the regular timeframe of Firefly. The crew finally have themselves a heist that ends up in uncovering a huge amount of cash. As they daydream what they will do with all the money, someone is chasing them down coming to kill Malcolm Reynolds, but little does he know that it is in fact another member of the crew who he wants. Fun romp with the wonderful Firefly/Serenity characters. Nothing too special but a bit of fun to read. The artwork is fun and an introduction by Adam Balwin (Jayne) is an added bonus.
Review by Pagemistress
The chief joy of these graphic novels is, of course, spending time with the much-loved and dearly missed crew of Serenity. This second graphic outing doesn't seem to hang together quite as well as the first, but for those of us who still mourn the passing of Firefly, it's worth the investment.
