Joss Whedon's 'Serenity' is [FINALLY] getting a sequel.. just not as a movie? 

In what feels like a million years, it seems Serenity is [finally] getting the sequel everyone has been waiting for since it's initial release! As many geeks know, Firefly [the TV show] came and left way before anyone felt they were ready to say goodbye. [thanks for the cancel, FOX. and after a measly15 episode run too!] Then we got Serenity, which was the Firefly movie that was made specifically for the die hard fans of Firefly that weren't happy with the fact that FOX cancelled the show.  It was good, some would even go so far as to say it's perfect. But then, that same sad feeling came back.. Serenity- like it's TV show counterpart- Firefly, had come and gone- again. Even though the ever growing fan-base demand for more adventures from Mal and the crew of Serenity, the creative minds and the actors of Firefly/Serenity have officially gone their separate ways and made nice careers for themselves. [I mean, jeez- look at Nathan Fillion! 'Castle' is supposedly fantastic- am I missing out?] But what if I was to say that somewhere, out in the wide universe, Serenity is still flying? But- flying where? Back to us- the hardcore, diehard fans perhaps? Well hold on tight, cause it's gonna be a bumpy ride.. Cause Serenity is getting that sequel we need- hell, that we deserve. I'll tell you one thing though, it's not going to be in movie format; but as a comic book!

 Yep. A Comic Book. Dark Horse Comics [who have worked on Comics such as 'Hellboy', and 'Buffy: The Vampire Slayer] has officially announced that it will launch a new Serenity comic book, which will take place immediately after the film's end. Georges Jeanty [who worked on Buffy: The Vampire Slayer] will be the one who will  provide the artwork for the comic. The best part of this, is knowing that an official plot for the comic has been released as well- which you can read down below;
"As the series begins, Mal and the crew are recouping from their recent strike against the sinister interplanetary government, The Alliance, in which they exposed government agencies as those responsible for the creation of the Reavers — the scourge of the universe. With River Tam in the co-pilot chair and a very pregnant Zoe reeling from the death of her husband, Wash, Mal is finding himself and his ship in greater danger than ever."
Other than the plot above, not much else is known as it seems that there is no writer or launch date who have been announced as of yet. How do you feel about an official sequel to Serenity? I mean, it's not a movie, but a comic could work well for the series, especially with an amazing artist like Jeanty!
