This is the cover I did for the hardcover trade paperback collection of Dark Horse Comic's first SERENITY comic-book miniseries, based on Joss Whedon's tv show & movie.

Yet another digital colorization of a gray tonal drawing.

18" X 27" on sketchbook/pad paper; pencil, ink, marker, white paint, Berol Prismacolor pencil, and then Photoshop CS2.

FIREFLY was the bestest, shiniest tv show. Ever.

At the very least, it was my favorite.

I adore your art-style, especially with the Firefly/Serenity characters.:)

I've watched this show over and over and I'm always saddened as I draw towards the end of the season bc I now the inevitable end is near. To see beautiful works of art like this; drawn with percision, tempered with the passion of the artist and painted with the love of the characters, I know the legend lives on. Browncoat's Forever!!!!!

Adam, as a huge fan of your artwork, I'd have to say that you out did yourself on this one. I can't quite pinpoint what did it for me, but I'd say that this actually tops your "Catwoman" covers and I wasn't sure that was possible. I love it.

......Two of my favorite things (your artwork and Firefly) just collided in my brain, and I think I need to sit down and ride the wave of awesome before I try operating heavy machinery. Thank you for being such an incredible artist, and for loving awesome shows!

I got that book in hardback for my birthday last summer! It was interesting. Firefly definitely had some of the most interesting and original writing.

Just watched the whole series on Netflix. You can call me a latecomer, bandwagon-jumper, and now massive fan. Then I watched Serenity.... then I may have cried a little.... don't judge me.

Beautiful work, great job on the likeness. Jayne's hat truly shows a man who fears nothing.
