    Awesome, worth the wait!

    This is a great story! I am very happy to finally have some holes filled in about Shepherd Book's past. Very well written and very well done. The artwork could be better some of the characters don't look themselves but, overall a very, very good work.

    A must read for any Firefly/Serenity Browncoat!

    This graphic novel brought some insight of the past of a complicated character to which is frequently alluded. The story and illustrations perfectly intertwined giving me much needed closure on this character.
