We received this tantalizing teaser image and text Friday from Dark Horse Comics via email and Twitter:
Joss Whedon’s beloved Firefly series and Serenity film’s lifespan may have been short-lived, but managed to produce one of the most dedicated fanbases in the history of modern science fiction. Dark Horse is proud to be able to keep Mal and his crew flying with new comics and products. Look for the hashtag #WheresSerenity over the next few months on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages for exclusive news on the future of the franchise at Dark Horse!
The email was actually a nifty animated GIF that started with the uncolored sketch seen in the Tweet below, and morphed into color before getting the dialogue “Where are we, Mal?” You can bet we’ll be watching the news feeds for the shiny news about our favorite rogue Firefly-class transport.

Dark Horse is, of course of course, responsible for continuing that other beloved Whedon TV series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, in comic-book form.
