Bookish for life

Anthropology graduate, anglophile, social justice activist, chocoholic, traveler and book lover from the German-speaking part of Switzerland, currently working in the renewable energy sector. Books have been my passion since before I could read.


Considering using this as a replacement for my Goodreads account, where I've been keeping track of what I read (audiobooks included). You can find a record of the dead-tree books I own on LibraryThing. As of now I haven't imported those yet.

Watch How I Soar

Serenity: Leaves on the Wind - Zack Whedon

Firefly is one of my all-time favourite tv shows, mostly because Joss Whedon somehow managed to create characters I adore. Every single one of the band of misfits aboard the Serenity feels like a friend, which is why I treasure every chance I get to spend more time with them.


This comic, collecting six issues, picks up shortly after the movie Serenity and reads like a proper mini-series. The information about Miranda was released, but the Alliance is powerful and won't topple easily. As always, they have aces up their sleeves, some quite surprising. However, now there's a New Resistance movement (led by new character Bea, who I liked very much), hoping to fight back - if only they had a leader... Unfortunately Malcolm Reynolds, as always, is definitely not volunteering for the role. All he wants is some peace for his crew, not in the least because there's a new addition. As per usual, however, he might not have a choice, and soon our Firefly family is caught up in events and fighting to remain together.


The stakes are high all through the story, and I was unable to put it down until the end - which leaves enough open to make me very hopeful for another run. Of the four stories told in comic-format, this is easily my favourite. And I'm not saying that just because seeing Mal and Inara finally together made me smile big time. :)
