Book Review: Serenity Vol. 1: Those Left Behind by Joss Whedon et al.

Serenity Volume 1: Those Left Behind written by Joss Whedon, script by Brett Matthews, art by Will Conrad

Captain Malcolm Reynolds and the crew of the Serenity run a couple of missions and they run into the typical problems: they're not getting paid, Inara wants to leave, the Alliance and other old foes are on their tails. The story starts in a promising way and then comes to a rather abrupt and unsatisfying conclusion. The last two pages read like a set-up for the movie Serenity and unfortunately the whole book feels like a movie tie-in product, not a well-thought out story. Very disappointing.
