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. 


Didja Notice?


On page 1, Jayne says, "No, this wasn't my 該死 plan." 該死 is pronounced Gāisi and means "damn it" in Chinese.


On page 7, the head monk reveals that there have been rumors of portals leading to Earth-That-Was. Presumably, this means that these rumors are floating around 'Versewide these days. The Serenity crew first learned of the portals in "Return to Earth-That-Was" Part 4.


On page 10, Kaylee tells the head monk that she and her crew had promised the people on Earth-That-Was they they'd leave the world alone and destroy the portals leading to it. This was in "Return to Earth-That-Was" Part 12.


On page 17, Jayne tells Owen, "I've been through a lot of 廢話 in my life, and I ain't died yet." 廢話 is pronounced fèihuà and is Chinese for, essentially, "bullshit".
