It’s taken two years for Serenity graphic designer Geoffrey Mandel to complete this official map of the ‘Verse, but seems as though that was time well spent.

Documenting the locations, relative sizes and names of the 215 terraformed worlds and moons, seven gas giants, seven protostars and five distinct star systems that make up the Firefly ‘Verse, the map is chock full of details starting with a foundation of available references from the series and movie and built out from there.

The Complete and Official Map of the Verse measures 40-inches wide x 27-inches tall and is made from 65-lb heavy cover stock paper.

You Tube channel Digging Deeper takes a look at Joss Whedon’s Serenity and explains why the movie succeeds (as film – it wasn’t exactly a box office smash) across multiple genres.

I’m not sure I’d agree with everything said here, but I do think Firefly and Serenity were far more visionary than many people initially realized.

Firefly is getting a new trading card set called “Firefly The Verse” by Upper Deck. One of the artists involved is Robert Jimenez, and he decided on a unique approach that blends Firefly and pulp fiction. There are also some cards inspired by propaganda posters.

Jimenez says we should expect more information on the new trading cards in the next few weeks. If you’re interested, he’ll also be putting up some of the original art for sale on his site.

If Jayne Cobb slept with his beloved Vera at his side, it would have been a lot more comfortable if she was made of plush. Plus, Reavers suck in a pillow fight.

I guarantee that Browncoats with plush Vera and a Jayne Hat will sleep like a baby.

We’ve been anxiously awaiting Alan Tuduk’s Con Man webseries, and the new trailer he and Nathan Fillion dropped at SDCC has us more excited than ever. It looks like it will be the next best thing to Firefly season 2.

But, before we get into it, refresh your memory with the synopsis:

Con Man centers on the post-show life of Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk) the co-star of “Spectrum,” a sci-fi series, which was canceled before its time and went on to become a cult classic beloved by fans. Wray’s good friend, Jack Moore (Nathan Fillion) starred as the series Captain and has gone on to become a major celebrity, while Wray (Tudyk) hasn’t found his desired level of stardom. Wray is the begrudging guest of sci-fi conventions, comic book store appearances, and different pop culture events; however, everything is not as it seems from the outside. The series will explore these events and all the weird and crazy things that happen to them along the way.

Con Man also features a plethora of Sci-Fi’s biggest personalities including: Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), Amy Acker (Person of Interest), Gina Torres (Firefly, Suits), Sean Maher (Firelfly, Eastsiders), Felicia Day (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Seth Green (Family Guy/Austin Powers), Mindy Sterling (Austin Powers), Jewel Staite, (Firefly), Summer Glau (Firefly, Terminator: SCC), Sean Astin (Lord of The Rings), James Gunn and Joss Whedon.

They’re in stock now and you can see more pictures after the break.

The shiniest ship in the ‘Verse is returning to the skies for Firefly Online. We’ve already seen a clip of Sean Maher reprising his role as Dr. Simon Tam as well as Alan Tudyk as Wash, but the latest clip features Captain Tightpants himself (Nathan Fillion) waxing poetic about his days on the show and how happy he is to be stepping back into the role. A second clip has voice director Andrea Romano sharing her excitement about being able to work with the cast.

Jesse L. Martin and his Flash co-stars Rick Cosnett and Carlos Valdes sang a gospel version of the Firefly theme song that will have you once again crying over the show’s demise. They did it as a thank you after Joss Whedon made a large donation to their Kickstarter.

The group is working on a short film called The Letter Carrier that tells the story of a black family in the 1860s hiding from slavery in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The story is told through music, making this thank you especially appropriate.

See Joss’s tweet and the video after the break.

I don’t think there was a doubt in anyone’s mind that an Indiegogo campaign for a webseries featuring Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion would be successful.

They’ve already quadrupled their funding goal with 28 days left to go.

Yes, Browncoats are the best—and these guys know it. As thank you to their fans, Alan and Nathan unveiled a teaser for Con Man. I think you’ll agree that this is money well spent.
