Mourn no more, long-bereaved Firefly fan. Irish artist Stephen Byrne is giving Joss Whedon’s dearly departed cult hits new life in these teasers for the series’ potential “animated adventures.”
Alas, they’re not *real* promos for *real* animated series–but they definitely dredge up some delicious nostalgia, and spark the imagination for what might have happened in future series.
Take the FIREFLY teaser: in less than a minute, Byrne’s cartoon vision for the show promises epic smooches, mysterious holograms, and the possible return of one of SERENITY’s gut-wrenching fatalities.
Fanwank away, weirdos:
Byrne’s BUFFY trailer is a little longer, and imagines a wildly different alternate universe from the comic books’ canon continuation of the series, featuring creatures heretofore unseen in the Buffyverse. Ghosts! Dragons! Piles of shrimp! It’s enough to make you a bit weepy (and a bit desperate for MORE BUFFY).
Finally, for nerds of the British sci-fi variety, Byrne’s got a DOCTOR WHO trailer, featuring the 12th iteration of everybody’s favorite madman in a box.
