Finally, The Secrets Of Firefly’s Shepherd Book Will Be Told!
io9.com: We’ve been waiting years for the comic book that tells the backstory of Firefly‘s Shepherd Book, called The Shepherd’s Tale. And now it’s finally coming out, written by Zack Whedon from a detailed scene-by-scene outline by his brother Joss.
We’ve heard little hints about Book, including that he found God in a bowl of soup, he killed a man, and one part of him is artificial. But now, Zack Whedon explains to Comic Book Resources that all will be revealed about Serenity’s most enigmatic crewmember:
You will see Book’s full trajectory… How he became the man he was in the show and who he was previous to that. It takes you deep into his past. You really get to see the entire evolution of this man.
