One of Serenity’s greatest mysteries is finally revealed in Shepherd’s Tale, filling in the life of one of the show’s most beloved characters–Shepherd Book!

Who was Book before meeting Mal and the rest of the Serenity crew, how did he become one of their most trusted allies, and how did he find God in a bowl of soup? Answers to these and more questions about Book’s past are uncovered in this original graphic novel by rising stars Zack Whedon (Dr. Horrible, Terminator, Fringe) and Chris Samnee (Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps, Daredevil). A pivotal chapter in the ongoing Serenity saga, Shepherd’s Tale is also a rollicking, action-packed epic in its own right!

  1. This is easily my most anticipated book of the week and thats saying a lot considering Invincible #75 comes out this week as well. "The Bible is quite specific about killing. It is, however, somewhat fuzzier on the subject of kneecaps."

  2. Whedon and Samnee, so there!

  3. I had no idea this was coming. PULLED!

  4. WHAT!!! Way to hide from me in the Comics section, Greatest Book Of All Time! Very sneaky, but you won’t escape my grasp! Pulled, for the love of your Dear and Fluffy Lord!
