En effet xD

J'ai adoré lire le première série (la flotte perdue), elle était cool, quoique le secret sur les aliens devenait pesant x)
Mais maintenant de nouveaux horizons sse sont ouvert avec "Aur-delà de la frontière" !

I like how the hull is all gnarly and worn -very 'beat up' looking.

can i say it reminds me of James Cameron's space ship from aliens and the design also reminds me of starship troopers invasion which was actually more accurate to the book series

Looks cool. Was its look consulted with the author of the book?
One thing that really annoyed me when leading the series was that he never properly described the ships.

nope, just read the book and came up with my own view!
send it to jack campbell and he loved it!
he was complaining about the US covers that really suck with blackjack in spacearmor...

Big fan of the series, and glad you are too. Since Campbell doesn't do much in the way of "animated description" (one of his few flaws as a writer), this really puts the series into perspective as the theme goes. I like the ship drawing in contrast to the specificity given to the hardsuits. I think the guns are a bit too compact and laser-like, though.

They need this for the American versions, our covers kinda suck. Instant fav, btw, and taking a look at your other work.

hey ,glad that you like it
I'm already working on the next episode called "invincible"...
for the gun,I thought I made it obvious that it's not laser guns,take a closer look please!

as for the US covers ,yeah they are terrible and the author even make fun of it in "invicible"
always a guy in armor when Geary never weared any armor ,stupid marketing shit...

Sorry for not responding sooner, been gone out of town.

Still looks kinda like a laser (the end of the barrel where it narrows), even though it does resemble a ballistic weapon. Not that big of a deal, in retrospect.

Just saw your cover for "invincible", haven't read it yet, but the design is very well done. The contrast between kind of a "sketchy" feel and then specificity is definitely pleasing on the eye (and looks cool), and seems like a signature style. Keep it up!

I've read around half the first book, I've got along way to go, but I'm far enough that I've had the brief description of the marines.
