Dark Horse teams up Star Wars, Firefly and Zack Whedon for Free Comic Book Day

No, it’s not a crossover, sadly. But you do get two-in-one: A Han and Chewbacca story shares a flip book with the Serenity folks, both tales penned by Zack Whedon (he co-wrote Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog with brothers Joss and Jed.) And Dark Horse will offer another flip book with Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Guild. (via)

Free Comic Book is, as always, the first Saturday in May: This year, that means May 5, 2012. You’ll be able to find a participating comic shop near you with the Comic Shop Locator.

  1. Aw man, you had me so happy there with the thought of a Star Wars story penned by a Whedon. But either way, sounds good!

  2. He’s writing both.

    “Next up is one of the biggest flip books we’ve ever published, when Zack Whedon brings you tales of the coolest guy in the galaxy and the most charming rebel in the ’verse! That’s right; we’ve paired Star Wars with Joss Whedon’s Serenity! “

  3. I don’t think I could look forward to this more. Zack Whedon’s recent Serenity books and minis have been fantastic and always do great justice to the characters and setting. Having him work on something Star Wars seems a fantastic idea.

    I’m a little bummed out that Dark Horse doesn’t have a new Mike Mignola offering coming next year, though. He at least writes a little Hellboy story, usually, and they’re almost always interesting and unique.
