Serenity: Float Out [Comics]

Serenity: Float Out is the first comic set in the Firefly universe sense the movie came out a few years ago. I had high hopes, but unfortunately it's a bit of a let-down. The one-shot sees three of Wash's old friends (new characters) assembling to honor him by telling stories of his exploits before becoming pilot for Serenity. The flashbacks are okay, if a bit confusing at times, but as much as I liked Wash, I was expecting something very different. Except for a cameo at the end, none of the other characters from the t.v. show make it into the comic. If we hadn't been so starved for Firefly/Serenity material over the past few years, I might be more forgiving.
