Quantum Mechanix Inc. releases Firefly 10th anniversary celebration art print. The 27" x 40" lithograph was created by graphic designer Jeff Halsey and features Serenity's silhouette in front of a moon, as well as a quote.

I got shivers when I saw that quote from Mal at the movies, and tears when I saw the Serenity soaring in the sky one last time.
This is great. Subtle and powerful.
"Celebrate a Decade of Iconoclasm"? Ummm I think not.

Iconoclasm is the deliberate destruction of religious icons and other symbols or monuments, usually with religious or political motives. It is a frequent component of major political or religious changes.

It's a beautiful new version of the artist's original -- although I remain... let's just say "confused" as to how a movie quote is a celebration specifically of the series, which is what's having the anniversary this year.

There seems generally to be a remarkable lack of effort all around to specifically mark the series' anniversary, except for the forthcoming Science Channel special. Even the Titan Books release is three previously-published books collected with some unspecified extra material.
It's a fantasy...but maybe Joss is saving up for something BIG...maybe?
