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 Simon Tam, wanted at a 10,000 credits bounty, with suspect considered highly dangerous.

 

On the standard cover of this issue by Mona Finden, the sticky bomb on the surface of the cockpit of Serenity looks nothing like the bombs depicted in the story itself. 

 

Didja Notice?

 

The image of Serenity on page 5 is the same one seen on the last page of "The Gospel According to Jayne" Part 6, now with the four spacesuited figures added onto the hull.

 

The spacesuits worn by the crew for the space walk are the same style as the ones seen in a number of past stories.

 

The crew's hovermule is destroyed in this issue.

 

On page 20, the crew finds an Alliance portal ring in the cargo bay of the mercenary ship. Portal rings are capable of transporting people and things from one place in space to another, as first seen in "Return to Earth-That-Was" Part 1.
