I like. :) River's comment was amusing ("mal" has also passed down unchanged into French and means "bad" in that language too, incidentally. :D )

Awesome art. Captain Reynonlds is probably my favorite character in the entire series :la:. He general doesn't like people that kill him though.... Love if you get the quote

Captain Malcom Reynolds. the ONLY Captain i would willingly serve under. he may be a hard ass, but he needs to be, and he cares for his crew like none other.

<3 Firefly! You've captured Mal's expression perfectly. It's halfway bitter spite and half caring superhero.

:omg: This is SO shiny!

Truly, I think you captured Mal perfectly. Not only does it look like him, but the expression on his face is perfect too. Easygoing on the surface, slight smirk, but there's steel in his gaze, something that tells you not to fuck with him, or else. :clap:

Love the colours, and the ink splatters somehow fit the theme really well. Darn, I wish the comics were as good as this.

Firefly was the best gorram thing ever, and I still can't believe the chou wan ba dan cancelled it. :shakefist:
