Serenity: Better Days #3 (Dark Horse Comics)
By Joss Whedon, Brett Matthews, Will Conrad & Adam Hughes

With Mal in the clutches of a “Peacemaker” holdout from the war, Zoe quickly understands that she’s the person they really want, and it’s up to her to assemble the crew of Serenity for a rescue mission. While the main problem with this miniseries has been a lack of consequence (since we all know what happens later in the movie), the storyline here really does read like a solid “lost” episode of the TV show. If anything, it feels a little too similar to one of the best episodes of the show, “War Stories,” but the payoff is very different, with a very interesting development in Mal’s relationship with Inara that also sheds a little light on just how the ship is run, exposing a facet of his personality that is evident in the TV show, but that goes farther than we ever got to see it on the screen. In the end, this was a fun little miniseries, but we Browncoats have to hope that the next miniseries — a focus on Shepherd Book — will have more meat to it.
