Enjoy the continuing adventures of our favorite crew of space-faring scallywags in the second comic book series set in the world of Firefly and Serenity. Just released this year, Serenity: Better Days is a 3-issue series from Dark Horse Comics, written by Joss Whedon and Brett Matthews, illustrated by Brazilian artist Will Conrad and colored by Michelle Madsen. The covers are by celebrated artist Adam Hughes, and just as in the first series Serenity: Those Left Behind, the cover art has an innovative twist. In this series each cover depicts three of the nine cast members, and the three issues line up side by side to form a portrait of the entire crew!

Kids Need to Read Charity Auctions presents Issue #2 of the Better Days series featuring the characters of Jayne, Book and Inara on the cover. Our copies are signed on the front by actor Ron Glass, beloved by Firefly fans as Shepherd Book – the gentle preacher with the mean right hook. In this issue the crew finds themselves fantasizing about how they will spend their share of an unexpected windfall. Are they going to live out their lives in wealth and ease? What do you think?

We have ten of these gems and are making them available for $60.00 each. This is your chance to own one of these rare collector’s items! You can use the following link to buy your copy while they last: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110257239932 . This sale will continue until June 2, 2000 or until they are all gone.

Our sincere thanks go to KNTR volunteer Beth for acquiring these signatures for Kids Need to Read and to Hub Conventions for making it possible. Money raised from these auctions is used to purchase books for under-funded schools and libraries, as well as for other literary organizations that provide books to disadvantaged children.

We are always looking for auction items! If you have something you would like to donate to Kids Need to Read, e-mail Debbie Brown at debbie@kidsneedtoread.org .

    I don’t deserve credit for this – it was Hub Productions who donated the autographs and they deserve credit where credit is due!

    You do Beth… you are the one who went and got them for us, but your right, Hub Productions deserves a thank you as well. I have added to the blog to reflect that.:)

    Thanks Debb 🙂

    It was very generous of Hub to do this for KNTR and it was a great convention too!
