Firefly #2

Things are never boring, or simple, for the crew of Serenity. After crashing and taking a job of protecting a wagon train of folks to their holy site, things get more complicated by the arrival of Alliance soldiers looking for two war criminals: Mal and Zoe. With the offer of a massive reward for the pair, the local gang decides to try and take down the two Browncoats instead of the wagon train. Things don't go as well as they hoped.

There's quite a bit of action here including flashbacks to Serenity Valley and the current firefight between our heroes and the local thugs who turn out to have just enough courage to die in the middle of nowhere at the hands of the war criminals and Jayne.

The comic ends on a darkly humorous note with Zoe and Wash both attempting to protect each other leading to two members of the team shooting each other just as an entire battalion of Alliance soldiers land on the planet. Things just got even more complicated. Nope, never boring. And never easy. Worth a look.
