Serenity: Those Left Behind
by Joss Whedon and others
Published by Dark Horse Comics
The front matter is an essay written by Nathan Fillion of how his family had a thing for comics or anything to be read when he was growing up. It was very well written and an excellent intro for Volume 1 of this series.
The 4-5 stories or episodes of this volume track well with the series as I believe they were meant to, although Shepherd Book plays a bit of a more active role in the start here. The last ten or so pages are commentary by Joss Whedon on creating the ‘verse and Serenity concept artwork.
This is a very well done comic and in line with my tastes as a space opera fan.
