Finally some action on this project. Back in 2008 I was speaking with Ron Glass at the
Shore Leave Farpoint convention in Baltimore when he mentioned he was writing a comic book. And not just any comic, but a story that would fill out the mysterious past of Shepherd Book!
As all Firefly fans know, Book was not at all forthcoming about his history. And due to his actions you knew he was not always a man of the cloth spreading the good word. And soon we will know that history.
According to an article on Comic Book Resources, the story will arrive in hardcover graphic novel format this November. I do recommend you hop over and read the CBR article as they have a great interview with the graphic novels artist, Chris Samnee.
