Zack Whedon gave some details about where the crew of Serenity will be when the sequel comic series, Leaves in the Wind, is released by Dark Horse Comics next month. The Alliance is still after them, but now Jayne is missing and Zoe is pregnant with a baby Wash! In an interview with Comic Book Resources, Zack also said:
It has been around nine months since the conclusion of “Serenity.” A lot has changed and a lot has stayed the same. The discovery that Mal and his crew shared with the ‘verse — that the inhabitants of the planet Miranda were killed or driven mad by an Alliance experiment — has opened some eyes and created some new allies, but it hasn’t deterred any of their pursuers. If anything, it has made them more relentless. Serenity is hiding out in lesser-known corners of the ‘verse, trying to keep a low profile. As you will see early on, that’s easier said than done. Mal and his crew will be forced to face their enemies head on — some familiar, some new.
Nine months means Zoe is about to have the baby. That could complicate matters ever so slightly for the crew. I’m thinkin’ they’ll all have to learn to behave or they’ll be corruptin’ that little one before he can walk.
On that note, the tone of the comic series might be a little different than what we’re used to given the circumstances. CBR notes:
This comic is shaping up to be, in many ways, a departure from the sometimes light-hearted series.
How do all of you die-hard Browncoats feel about this?
