You Can't Take The Sky From Me

I love Mondo and most of their limited edition posters...I really do. Now you are waiting for my big BUT.... BUT..most of the time, you have to be the fastest at the keyboard with the fastest, no fail internet connection and a healthy bank account to own a slice of Mondo goodness. The industry at large has noticed this empty space in your collections and have been doing their damnedest to dress your walls with all manor of zazzy art on the swankiest of papers, dipped in the shiniest of inks. Quantum Mechanix is one such purveyor of geektastic wonders and today...well today is the day the Browncoats get their piece of the action.

Firefly 10th Anniversary Celebration Art Print : September 20, 2002. That was the day that the American space western TV series Firefly premiered on the Fox network, bringing to life the adventures of Captain Malcolm Reynolds and his renegade crew aboard the spaceship Serenity.

Despite the TV series' short life span of just 14 episodes, the love for this iconic franchise from Joss Whedon continues to grow, boasting more fans each day. A decade later, Firefly is a worldwide phenomenon, achieving almost legendary status among people who love and create sci fi.

To celebrate Firefly's 10th anniversary, we're thrilled to present an homage from graphic designer Jeff Halsey. Jeff, a die-hard Firefly fan from Fresno, California, created this design after watching the TV series for the dozenth time.

"[Firefly] taps into the themes of freedom and creating a family that really resonate with me," says Jeff. "The show may have been short-lived, but the 'Verse will live on. I feel this poster is a reminder of that feeling and is a love letter to my favorite show."

Jeff made the minimalist-style poster for himself, but tweeted it to us at QMx. CEO Andy Gore was so impressed with the work, he knew QMx had to share it with other Firefly fans.

This beautifully stark image of Firefly's silhouette against a golden moon with a quote from our favorite captain is yours to savor. Our Firefly 10th Anniversary Celebration lithograph is the same size as a movie one-sheet – measuring 27" x 40" – and is printed on 100-pound, satin-finish paper.

Pay tribute to your favorite outlaws and the ship that will keep them flying for $19.95. CLICK HERE to get on the alert list for the pre-order drop!
