Oh my god, I would SO READ THAT! I wonder what it would've been like if writers had tried making sci-fi westerns back in the day?

I'm still faintly hoping that Joss or somebody in the know will see these covers and actually make them. hopefully with my covers but I'll still read them even if they didn't use them.

My completely unrealistic hope is that someone will show Joss these and he'll think it's a great idea and actually make them. What? I can dream. :)

Really cool and nicely done.
Tell me one thing, where did you found the texture of the cover? With all the wrinckels and everything...

Thanks much,
Actually it's all done by hand (well on a cintiq tablet) I have a large collection of actual old western novels and I just basically just copied the look. :)

You best be careful, boy. Pretty cover like this could start some nasty rumors. Don't wanna get folks hopes up, sending them off on a xn​bǎo​, going out and looking for a story don't exist. :aww:

I love it, especially the way you've made it look aged and well loved. It's a perfect fit for the 'verse itself - not like those shiny Alliance graphic novels that are always kept in their bag and never enjoyed or folded up a bit. It's resemblance to an old western comic makes it even more a perfect fit. Wonderful job!

Maybe it'll start big enough rumours that someone will actually make it :)
