The people at Quantum Mechanix were invited to Universal Studios where they got to see the model used for the crash scene in "Serenity." While there were rumors about the movie using a simple styrofoam model, the real thing is about as far from that as you can get.
Good news, everyone! Saturday is Free Comic Book Day, and one of the comics available for free contains Serenity and Star Wars stories, both written by Zack Whedon. The best part is you can read this preview of the Serenity comic right now.
