Adam Hughes to do cover art for Serenity trade paperback. The number of top notch comic book artists associated with the comic book prequel to the Serenity movie is staggering.

Cassaday, Hitch, Quesada, Hughes the list goes on and on.

That is just too cool, and it's even more cooler because I know those names.
This may sound like a dumb question, but where will we be able to find copies of this comic book?

I haven't purchased one since I was in high school - many many many many years ago....

Is it possible to purchase them in advance from some place? I'm already seeing people on ebay selling them in advance.
ShelaghC, I pre-ordered my copies (all 3 covers) of the first Serenity comic book(and Angel: The Curse) from, I don't know how good the site is, but the comics were about $3.00 each with protection. And that was the site are publishing the books) recommended.
"Staggering" might be a bit of an overstatement :} but it's nice to see a new comic book license getting the attention.
You can go to yahoo and search your local area for a Comic Book store and request to have a copy reserved for you or something. That's what I do.
I misunderstood this at first; I thought it meant he was doing the art for the novelization DeCandido is writing. It needs new art, but I thought it odd that they'd get a comic book artist... Now I realize, it's the trade paperback collection of the first miniseries of comics. (And I like how the article says "first" miniseries.)
Joss likes Adam Hughes' stuff I think. Cool beans, that man knows how to draw a cover.
Not that there was any doubt that they would put those three issues out in collected form, but it's nice to see it confirmed. This way, I don't have to be left wondering and wait over a year or more for a trade the way I did for Fray, and have for many titles in the past.

I'll probably be picking up the monthly individual issues anyway though. Being a prequel to the film, it only makes sense.
