MY THOUGHTS

It seems like I have been doing a lot of Firefly books lately. I recently reviewed Both Legacy Volume 2 and Firefly: Unification War. All where fantastic editions to the Firefly canon that enriched the verse for Firefly fans such as myself. Legacy Edition Volume 1 does not add much to the picture but a nice and pretty package. It takes all the existing stories and puts them all together into a cohesive binder that looks great on a shelf. 

Is it worth picking up? Absolutely. The packaging is quite nicely done. If you are new to the additional Firefly stories this makes it a great way to get your extra stories in. If this is a visit for some nostalgia this book is a great excuse to visit Mal and company. 

You really can’t go wrong spending a few hours on this.
