Anyone else think Overlord likes guns and dragons?

Something like this? 

To have an idea is not enough - no matter how good the idea is.

I like it, good combination of sub-genres.  Also there is a dragon.  See?  There behind that guy with the gun.

This is me. As anyone who knows me knows - there was always going to be a Dragon ;)

Not what I expected, but after your explanation, it's quite fitting and I like it. :)

Indeed! That is kind of what we wanted.

You look at fantasy anthologies and they are 'exactly what you'd expect' in terms of cover design - this isn't that and we didn't want to present it as that either. This is something new and different. Yes, there is are traditional aspects of our anthology (i.e. the dragon), but we are approaching things in a new way (the Western figure / the guns).

Thanks for all positive feedback so far :)

Very cool! Excellent melding of the sub-genres.  ;D

I can't get enough of this cover, I keep going back to look it at it. Its really cool.

the deepening pits of their gaze
vowed immortal war

I am always the badass with the gun! You can't see it because of the hat and mask but the artist perfectly captured my 'I'm being hunted through mist by a dragon, oh shit' face. :)

Is it only me or does the Dragon lack a teeny bit of depth? It looks awesome, but I can't see the depth of it. It's face seems... flat  ???

It might be just me, though.
