Captain Mal Reynolds leads a rag-tag crew of bandits, thieves, and renegades through the stars on the Serenity. Where did he learn all this? From his mother, of course. Boom! Studios, in partnership with 20th Century Fox, is taking a look at the woman who shaped Mal into the fearsome Browncoat and fearless leader he is today in Firefly: The Outlaw Ma Reynolds. Check out a preview of this oversized one-shot below.
Captain Malcolm Reynolds—thief, smuggler, resistance fighter, and now captain of a crew of outcasts all the way on the farthest reaches of the ‘verse—wasn’t born an outlaw but he comes by it honestly.

Kicking off a new year of Firefly, discover the secret history of Mal and his mother, what that will mean for the rest of the ‘verse…and a new brewing war to end all wars.
