Firefly: Still Flying: A Celebration of Joss Whedon’s Acclaimed Television Series is another collection of photos, production stills and artworks, collected cast interview excerpts, details on some of the props and available merchandise, a tribute to the die-hard fans who comprise the Browncoats, and more.
Still Flying also includes four new short stories set in the Verse, by writers who gave us some of the original Firefly episodes:
FUN WITH DICK AND JAYNE written and drawn by Ben Edlund
WHAT HOLDS US DOWN, by Jane Espenson
CRYSTAL by Brett Matthews
TAKE THE SKY by Jose Molina
Giving fans more stories, more photos, and more behind-the-scenes details makes Firefly: Still Flying a good addition to the two Official Companion volumes Titan Books published, and like many Browncoats out there, there doesn’t seem to be “enough” for me to explore and discover about the Verse, and I can reread the stories again and again about what went on between the cast and crew when the cameras were off, and smile in wonderment at the flashes of ingenuity and madness that went into creating some of the props.
I can’t wait to see what Titan comes up with next to add more goodies to the Firefly Verse.
