Book Review: Serenity: No Power in the 'Verse by C. Roberson et al.

Serenity: No Power in the 'Verse script by Chris Roberson and art by Georges Jeanty and Stephen Byrne

The crew of Serenity are drawn into a mission to save a friend imprisoned by the Alliance on an Outer Rim world. Complicating matters is the Alliance Operative sent to handle the situation who has a personal interest in River Tam. Complicating things even further is a terrorist group known as the Peacemakers who are trying to restart the war the Browncoats lost. Captain Malcolm is sympathetic with their ambitions but not with their methods, giving him hard choices to make. Misbehaving ensues.

The story is interesting and the dialogue really sounds like the show. The art is sometimes good, sometimes bad. The ending is a little unconvincing, mostly because it reads like a come on for a next series rather than a conclusion for this one.

Recommended for Serenity fans only.
