    Firefly Panel

    July 19, 2012 by Xean

    We had the opportunity to attend a press conference for Firefly, and heard from the cast about their love for their characters and each other. We also found out about Browncoats Unite, an upcoming a world premiere anniversary special exploring the FIREFLY phenomenon debuting November 11 on SCIENCE. This hour- long special will include interviews with the cast and crew, exclusive footage from the Comic-Con 10-year anniversary panel, and will give fans an inside look at the series they've loved for so long.

    We had the opportunity to sit down with Jeff Smith, the author of the Bone comics, before his signing at Comic-Con this year. We spoke about the upcoming Bone movie, and his newest creation RASL. We even had him sign some books for us, so look for those in an upcoming giveaway!

    W: Will you be releasing a full color collection edition soon?
    JS: Yes we are, here at Comic-Con we are debuting a collectors edition; one volume in color with lots of little extras like a documentary, little Bone figures, cover galleries, lots of extra bells and whistles. In the fall we'll do a hard cover slip case one volume edition that will be the whole thing in color.

    W: Can you give us a hint about what the movie might look like? We're thinking Lord of the Ring…
