New ‘Firefly’ comic to explore the life and death of Wash

The pilot of Serenity returns this November.

In an exclusive report by James Whitbrook of io9, it was revealed that BOOM! Studios will be releasing a Firefly graphic novel examining the life and death of Serenity pilot Hoban “Wash” Wasburn.

Firefly: Watch How I Soar will be written by Ethan Young and feature artwork by Jorge Corona. According to a press release from BOOM! Studios, the book will explore what flashed through Wash’s mind immediately following the soul-crushing moment he was speared by Reavers in the Serenity film.

The press release states:

“As Wash’s life flashes before his eyes, he revisits the most important, never-before-revealed moments in his life, from growing up on a planet so ravaged by pollution that no star could shine in the sky to meeting the woman of his dreams in Zoë Alleyne, who would become his wife and create a life with him beyond his wildest imagination.”

“And in those final moments, Wash will reach out to connect with a surprising someone he never thought possible…proving that some bonds transcend this mortal coil.”

In his report, Whitbrook states that Firefly fans have never gotten over Wash’s death. As a loyal Browncoat myself, I can confirm that he is 100% correct. Wash was my favorite character in one of my all-time favorite series. His death in Serenity was completely unexpected and still ranks as one of the most jarring moments I’ve ever experienced while watching a movie.

Considering BOOM! Studios’ excellent track record handling the Firefly universe and the great creative team, this book is an absolute must-buy. Revisiting the moment we lost Wash might be painful, but it’ll be great getting to see how his life unfolded before joining the crew of the Serenity.

Firefly: Watch How I Soar is set to be released this November.
