Dark Horse Can't Stop the Signal, Relaunches 'Serenity'
2:01 PM PDT 9/20/2013 by Graeme McMillan

Dark Horse Comics will relaunch "Firefly" with art from longtime Joss Whedon collaborator (and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" artist) Georges Jeanty.

Full article at the link. Of course it's not a new series/movie, but it's the next best thing - so I am really looking forward to this comic! :D

If you're interested in more pics from the recent charity performance of Ian McKellen, with the support of most of the main Hobbit cast, go here: McKellen and friends at the Opera House

For those wanting to join TORn for their Hobbit premiere tour: TORn’s own tour to New Zealand for “The Hobbit” premiere is now open for business, and also read this Quick update to the TORn Hobbit Premiere story

Primary filming for The Hobbit is nearly done?

Aaaand last but very much not least - lucky those who get to go to SD Comic Con! Obviously TORn will be there - The Comic con blitz from TORn has begun - but also some very familiar (or soon to be so) faces: ‘Hobbit’ lineup announced for Comic-Con includes Jackson, McKellen, Serkis, Armitage, Freeman, Boyens!!!
And if that's not enough reason to envy SDCC goers, this Hobbit-unrelated announcement will do it - certainly for fellow Browncoats: Entire Firefly Cast Will Reunite At Comic-Con For The Show’s 10-Year Anniversary. "The cast of FIREFLY will talk about the past, present and future of FIREFLY, 10 years after its debut. " Um, FUTURE?! I mean, there have been comics, but... could it be, after Joss' success with Avengers?! I don't dare hope...

Fans Launch "Help Nathan Fillion Buy 'Firefly'" Movement

Last week there was a brief furor over the Internet when Nathan Fillion did an interview with Entertainment Weekly--prompted by The Science Channel acquiring the rights to air Firefly on cable again--in which he reminisced on playing Malcolm Reynolds. Further, the Castle star said, "If I got $300 million from the California Lottery, the first thing I would do is buy the rights to Firefly, make it my own, and distribute it on the Internet."

Now, some especially fervent Browncoats are taking Fillion at his word and amassing support in the Help Nathan Buy Firefly campaign. [...]

More info at the link. Oh, and of course Sean Maher is among those who'd come back if Nathan were to succeed! :D

The weather's been sunny and pelasant the whole week, with the snow melting at a good pace, though we still have piles of it even in town. I spent most of the afternoon getting some soil and then, more importantly, seeding most of the flowers that will go on my balcony. \o/ Haven't decided if I'll seed any herbs/salads/veggies at all this year, since I'll be gone for a month this summer. But there's still time for that. Now I REALLY hope that we have truly seen the last of the snow until sometime November/December!!! Well, in Switzerland - I know I'll see some in New Zealand, though I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll get a mild winter! :)

Other than that, I was just watching a few Firefly episodes with commentary, and man the melody at the end of "The Message" still gets me. Every. Single. Time. Speaking of - fellow Browncoats may want to check out this Nathan & Alan picture story by [livejournal.com profile] trianne. *giggle*

And where has the time gone?! Need to go wash my hair now... have a lovely evening/weekend everyone!
ourdramaqueen: (Default)
How come no one has mentioned this, huh?! ;) (Be sure to go to the Dark Horse MySpace and actually read it.) And there will be a new print comic at the end of the year too, whee! Sounds like we may finally find out a little more about Shepherd Book's past?
ourdramaqueen: (nightrunner alec seregil sick)
No that's not an exploitation film or a whacky Hollywood comedy, but a documentary about two girls who joined the Black Tigers, the elite squad of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) a.k.a. Tamil Tigers. Rest behind cut because it's not very cheerful )

In more cheerful news, I got hailed on on the short way from the closest bus stop to home, and my thin silk skirt was thoroughly soaked and clung to my legs by the time I reached the door. I'm not complaining though - this is just another sign that IT'S SUMMER!!! \o/

Oh and I believe I forgot to mention that I'll have a two-week holiday from 7 July on. FINALLY!!! \o/ Speaking of which, the third and last volume of my "Serenity: Better Days" comic did arrive at the end of last week. Phew! Now I hope that my copy of "Shadow's Return" will get here soon... of course the slight delay in shipment was my own fault because I had forgotten to update my credit card's expiration date, although I was convinced I'd done it for all pre-ordered items... Duh!
ourdramaqueen: (nightrunner alec seregil sick)
You can read an excerpt from chapter one of "Shadow's Return" at randomhouse.com! Aaaaaaaaargh - still 14 days to go until release...

Speaking of - [livejournal.com profile] samena, did you see this entry by Lynn (which has its roots in the comments of this entry)? Street of Lights indeed! Still not quite how I imagine Seregil, but not bad. ;D

*prays to the Postal Gods to deliver her copy of SR as quickly as possible*

*while she's at it, prays for her copy of "Serenity: Better Days" #3 to finally arrive*
ourdramaqueen: (firefly kaylee mal i love my captain)
It doesn’t matter if you dig on sci-fi, if you love/hate serialized shows, if you prefer chick flick-type shows, etc. Whatever you like about TV, “Firefly’s” got. And the only problem with the show is that there absolutely isn’t enough.

That's the conclusion of a wonderful post by someone who's even more of a late-comer than me to the world of Browncoats. Very much worth reading, because it perfectly explains what makes Firefly so brilliant, and why if you haven't seen it yet, you must! :D

*sips tea, listens to her new "Meditative State" playlist*

The Stingray DVDs will be delayed, but at least Amazon is finally listing them. :) And the cover art looks pretty cool. :D

Two items for [livejournal.com profile] serenitysangel - Sideshow posted more pictures of their Legolas bust. And Orlando has a new project:


Bloom, Molina, Hawkins join 'Education'
Scherfig pic shoots in London

Orlando Bloom, Alfred Molina and Sally Hawkins, who won a Silver Bear in Berlin for “Happy-Go-Lucky,” have joined the cast of Lone Scherfig’s “An Education,” a coming-of-ager set in 1960s London.

Read more... )

A preview of the first five pages of the "Serenity: Better Days" comic issue #1 is available at wizarduniverse.com. Featuring Simon! As does (is?) the cover of issue #3! \o/ Interestingly, they haven't revealed cover #2 yet - I'm curious to find out why. Can't wait for my copy of issue #1 to arrive sometime around/after mid March - and then of course it'll be a wait of 1 month between it and #2, and #2 and number 3... :)

Anyway, night night my dears, sweet dreams to you all!

[livejournal.com profile] greenie_breizh has posted her photos from Creation's Serenity Salute convention last weekend in LA at her photo LJ, [livejournal.com profile] holdlifestill. Guests were Nathan Fillion, Sean Maher, Alan Tudyk, Summer Glau, Morena Baccarin and Yan Feldman, and the pictures came out great! Don't miss the links to her full Photobucket galleries at the end of each entry. :D

Creation Entertainment have a few Serenity promo pictures in their shop featuring Sean which I don't have yet - including the one of the Simon/Kaylee kiss at the end... *whimper* Guess I'll be putting in an order soon! :)

I hope someone will bring news from their Firefly & Serenity Salute this coming weekend, about a new project for Sean... *fingers crossed*

I'm back! Had a lovely, relaxing time this past week and will post more when I'm coherent again. I got back after midnight yesterday instead of 23:00 because my flight was delayed, and then had to get some stuff together for work this morning which meant I wasn't able to go to bed until after 1am after a day spent mostly travelling. I just had a hot bath and may well just go crash in a moment. TGIF!

I'm afraid many entries which I wanted to comment on will remain commentless... I had them all nicely opened in separate tabs - must have been more than a dozen - but of course IE just had to crash. And there's no way I'll go back through skip=500 or however many it was, terribly sorry. I do remember some entries (don't sigh in relief yet, [livejournal.com profile] kneonlight! *cackle*) and will comment on them... but not tonight.

On a totally different topic: I certainly won't be getting this cheaply priced little trinket, no matter how much I like Mara Jade! However, this... Yay Timothy Zahn! And oh bugger, I guess I'll have to get this! ;)

Anyway... night night, and I'll speak to you tomorrow! *crawls to bed*
ourdramaqueen: (firefly simon ironic)
Curled up on the sofa with a hot water bottle (yes PMS is finally over), tea and some Walker's Fruit and Lemon biscuits, watching Firefly - "Ariel", to be exact. If I needed a reminder of why I love Simon so much, the scene in which he explains his plan to River would be perfect. *♥ him so much*
ourdramaqueen: (Default)
OMG!!!!!!!!!!! I just stumbled across this article - and I had seen Serenity in Disguise and the three PVC figures (and apparently there's more stuff to come, yay!), but I didn't know there was another comic series in the making! OMG SO SHINY!!!!!!!!!! *bounce bounce bounce*

Hey [livejournal.com profile] serenitysangel, I got Mal too - though it could just as well have been Kaylee, I had 60% for them both. And they're closely followed by Simon. :D

Your results:
You are Malcolm Reynolds (Captain)
Malcolm Reynolds (Captain)
Kaylee Frye (Ship Mechanic)
Dr. Simon Tam (Ship Medic)
Derrial Book (Shepherd)
Zoe Washburne (Second-in-command)
River (Stowaway)
Wash (Ship Pilot)
Inara Serra (Companion)
Jayne Cobb (Mercenary)
A Reaver (Cannibal)
Honest and a defender of the innocent.
You sometimes make mistakes in judgment
but you are generally good and
would protect your crew from harm.
