Check out below for some updates on the production, including someone officially sitting in the director's chair. read more »
Let me re-iterate our news headline here: Fan concept art. Albeit, a very talented graphic designer of a fan named Xander Davis. But nonetheless, this is unofficial concept art. Still, it gets the juices flowing, eh?
