SERENITY BETTER DAYS #1 (OF 3)
What did the
I love everything Joss Whedon has done. I love Buffy. I love Angel. I love Astonishing X-Men and the other books he’s done but I especially love Firefly. It was the first Whedon thing I’d ever discovered so it has a very special place in my heart.
This book didn’t do it for me. I mean it was fine and everything but it doesn’t have the crackle that the series had. I would blame it on the fact that it’s because you lose something when you don’t hear the dialogue delivered by the actors themselves, but the Buffy comic book has been so great and funny that I know it isn’t the case.
This issue basically sets up the crew of Serenity making a huge score. Millions in fact. I’m hoping this is just the first issue blues and that things will pick up in the next issue. I’ll definitely be picking up issue two to see how it looks.
Another problem I had with this book was the artwork by Will Conrad. It’s fine and everything. It’s just distracting because he’s drawing people I know the faces of quite well. I could forgive it except that Georges Jeanty draws characters I followed for 7 seasons and it looks much better than it does here.
This book just doesn’t come together for me. Maybe I could enjoy it more if I hadn’t been reading Buffy season 8 every month which is so great. If you’re a Browncoat like myself than you probably already picked this up. If not, then it’s probably best you stick with something else.
