Didja Know?


All-New Firefly is a 10-issue limited series comic book (with a stand-alone Big Damn Finale special) published by BOOM! Studios in 2022. It told a single 11-part storyline that, when later published as three trade paperback collections, was titled The Gospel According to Jayne.


The "Wanted Poster" variant cover of this issue features Jayne Cobb, wanted at a 10 credits bounty, with suspect considered highly dangerous. I guess he's only 10 credits because he's considered just muscle, not the brains of any criminal operation. 


Didja Notice?


Simon remarks to Kaylee that the mercenaries probably heard about Requiem and came to steal supplies and valuables, just as the Serenity crew had planned to do (before they found out about the monastery). This was in "The Gospel According to Jayne" Part 1.


This issue introduces sticky bombs, which float in space until a ship gets close and attach themselves magnetically while disabling all systems aboard the ship. If an attempt to remove them is made, they blow up.
