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 River Tam, wanted at a 1,000,000 credits bounty, with suspect considered highly dangerous. 


Didja Notice?


On page 11, Kaylee, finding a portal in the hold of the mercenary ship, remarks that she thought they'd destroyed all the portals to Earth-That-Was. The crew thought they did so in "Return to Earth-That-Was" Part 12.


On page 19, Simon remarks that the Tax Collector is losing a lot of blood from a bullet wound in his thigh that most likely hit the femoral artery. The femoral artery is the main blood artery for the leg.
