First, Joss Whedon and Dark Horse Comics have come out with a series of comic books that pick up where the series left off. The intention is to bridge the gap between the series and the movie. I have already read the first of the three comic books. This idea definitely deserves at least 4 and ½ aliens in my book. Because of the involvement of Whedon and Brett Matthews, the comic books definitely maintain the mood of the series. Read more about the comic book series here. Better yet, you can buy your very own here.
Second, you can purchase some lovely Firefly t-shirts. Special thanks to Steve, our ever diligent reader, for finding this website. Someone at SCIFIPUNDIT has a birthday coming up. I bet one of these t-shirts might be on his ever growing “what I want for my birthday” list….
Lastly, I found this enlightening website that gives you the English translation of the Chinese being spoken and seen on Firefly. Mr. Whedon demonstrates his ingenuity by adding a Chinese influence to his vision of the future.
In 49 days you should be at the movie theater with us watching this movie. We will save you some popcorn.
