BOOM! Studios has been doing a pretty solid job with the Firefly brand with their own comics recently (you can check out a recent review here). It is also exciting to have writer Delilah S. Dawson on board. She did a great job with The X-Files: Case Files “Florida Man” comic. From Geektyrant Dawson gives what inspired Firefly: The Sting. 

“‘A him gets noticed, a her gets ignored.’ That’s the quote from Ocean’s 8 that really captured my imagination. I love that idea—that women can use our occasional invisibility as a superpower. I’ve been a Firefly fan since I saw Serenity in the theater in 2005 and rushed out to buy the DVD set that night, and it’s been a pure joy cracking open each of these unique, powerful women to see what she desires, what she fears, and how far her loyalty to Mal can stretch. Have you ever wondered what Zoë, Kaylee, Inara, and River would do without a single man in the picture? Thanks to Saffron’s wiles (and threats), you’re about to find out.”

Back at It

The full description for Firefly: The Sting is “Saffron — the enigmatic rogue who captured the hearts of Firefly fans worldwide, as well as the heart of Captain Malcolm Reynolds — returns to the Serenity. But this time, she’s got no time for Mal, as she’s there to recruit the women of the ship to join her on a heist that has personal stakes for all involved. The cunning grifter joins forces with Zoë, Inara, Kaylee, and River to pull off the greatest theft in all the ‘verse! What could possibly go wrong?”
