Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #4

The mini-series continues giving us a glimpse of Zoe's new life as a prison of the Alliance while Mal and his crew, with the help of Jayne's new friends and the Operative, attempt to make use of River Tam's newest restored memories by attacking an Alliance medical research station where she, and several other candidates, were experimented on.

Although they are able to sneak into the facility what they find aren't so much scared young women in need of rescue but fully-designed super-soldiers, along with the doctor who created them, setting up big trouble for Mal and his group to deal with in the final two issues.

Although Kaylee earns the cover for this issue neither she nor Inara are given much to do other than express the crew's concern of Mal bringing in the Operative. It will be interesting to see an example of what River was meant to become as next month's issue will also give us the conclusion of the Operative's fight with another of his ilk. Worth a look.
