One of Serenity's greatest mysteries is finally revealed in The Shepherd's Tale, filling in the life of one of the show's most beloved characters - Shepherd Book! Who was Book before meeting Mal and the rest of the Serenity crew, how did he become one of their most trusted allies, and how did he find God in a bowl of soup? Answers to these and more questions about Book's past are uncovered in this original hardcover graphic novel by rising stars Zack Whedon (Dr. Horrible, Terminator, Fringe) and Chris Samnee (Blackest Night: Tales of the Corps, Daredevil) . A pivotal chapter in the ongoing Serenity saga, The Shepherd's Tale is also a rollicking, action-packed epic in its own right.

4.0 Serenity: The Shepherd's Tale
Excellent story well told, fills in all the blanks as promised. But I had to take off a star because the artist cannot draw faces. Half of the people here are featureless, and canon characters are only recognizable by clothes and context. This book, and Shepherd Book, deserved better.

4.0 Serenity: The Shepherd's Tale (Serenity (Dark Horse))
I'm not a comics fan. A friend of mine is, and swears it's as deserving of being considered an art form as text or film. I remain unconvinced, but keep my prejudices in mind--if you are a lover of the form, you may like this more than I did. (Or perhaps less, if as a fan of graphic novels you have a...
