Serenity Volume 2
Better Days and Other Stories
Joss Whedon, Brett Matthews, Will Conrad and at least 5 others
I got my copy of this volume from my local comic store, Haley’s Comics in Fort Collins, CO. Let me just say that this volume is an improvement over volume one which had a disproportionate amount of filler in the back. Volume two has many tales which bring all of the crew of Serenity into the plot. There are several involving Reavers which are one of my favorite constructs from the TV series and the movie.
My favorite from this book is The Other Half. This one reminds me of The Illustrated Man in how the multiple stories of how the crew would like to use their new found wealth are told. All are quite well thought out. This may also be the first volume which puts forth the vast difference between the Independents and the Alliance.
I giving this work a three out of five for Artwork and Storyline development which means I recommend it but wish the stories meshed better.
Read, watch and listen. Review; try to be positive and legit. Sell used dead-tree books; don’t return ebooks, movies, audio books because that is theft.
