Watch How I Soar
A new graphic novel exploring one of the most pivotal moments of Joss Whedon’s acclaimed Firefly, as Wash realizes he’s about to die and the most important moments flash before his eyes- including one that even he never expected.
“I AM A LEAF ON THE WIND;
WATCH HOW I SOAR”
Return to the critically-acclaimed world of Joss Whedon’s Firefly in an all new graphic novel spotlighting Hoban “Wash” Washburne, pilot of the spaceship Serenity…who has just realized he’s about to die.
As Wash’s life flashes before him, he revisits the most important, never before revealed moments in his life, from growing up on a planet so ravaged by pollution that no star could shine in the sky to meeting the woman of his dreams in Zoe, who would become his wife and create a life with him beyond his wildest imagination.
And in those final moments, Wash will reach out to connect with a surprising someone he never thought possible to meet…proving that some bonds transcend our mortal coils.
Writer Greg Pak and artists Davide Gianfelice and Lalit Kumar Sharma come together to present the unforgettable untold stories of the ‘Verse’s most lovable hero set during his final moments – and how love survives even when we don’t.
At no point during this book does Wash realize he’s about to die, and it’s a much better book for that one difference from the synopsis. It’s a collection of loosely related stories by various artists and authors that follow Wash’s life from his start of dinosaur appreciation as a young lad to a far future that could have been.
I’m a big fan of about half the art, but all of the stories and it breaks my heart that the ‘verse that we know is without Wash, but we’ll always be able to ponder what could have been.
