Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #3

More familiar faces return as Jubal Early makes his move and subdues each member of Serenity's crew, and its new guests, one-by-one (although he does forget about Kaylee) while River sleeps searching for more secrets she can use to fight the Alliance.

Kaylee's defeat of Early gives the ship's mechanic a bit of revenge from one of the show's most disturbing sequences where she found herself at the insane assassin's mercy and now can turn the tables. Although he's able to work his way through the crew, I am surprised with how quickly the comic ends his piece of the story (at least for now).

With River's remembrance of others who, like her, were manipulated and experimented on by the Alliance means the crew will have to make a side-trip before rescuing Zoe which also means Mal needs to recruit another member to the team. It also likely means the mini-series will finally begin pulling the curtain back on those who experimented on River and means the possible return of pairs of soldiers with hands of blue. Worth a look.
