The Caliber by Artgerm The Caliber by Artgerm
Cover artwork done for Caliber Issue 1, by Radical Comics. Produced by me and my team from IFS.

"The Arthurian legend as retold in the American Old West, with all of its great symbolism, magic and spirit of adventure. The Knights of the Round Table are all gunslingers bound by a code of honor to protect the weak and defend the innocent until they are undone from within by their own moral corruption. In this tale, Caliber itself is a tattooed six-gun, given to Arthur by the Indians and imbued with supernatural power. The secret of the gun is that it is never loaded with bullets, but when a man with Justice on his side is holding it, it can fire. When it does, it fires Thunder itself and never misses."

Gotta say, though I wasn't too blown away by the story, getting this comic was worth it just to have one of your cover pieces. Awesome work dude!

Very interesting concept for a comic - I really like old legends / myths with modern updates slapped on them - it's always very interesting to see how the old symbolism is reinterpreted.

Dear Artgerm,

I had wanted to ask if we could make a non-exclusive sub-licensing agreement for this piece, but it looks like it went to a great use. Might you be interested in such an opportunity for other pieces of your work though? I have designed a card game and the time has come to print beta cards. I am not asking for your original(s) and of course you would be free to use your art in any other way you wish in the future.

You can find the license and details of the royalties at [link] Also, since you've been in the business could you please take the time to comment on the license and royalties I'm offering so I can learn whether I'm being realistic, fair and covering all of the things an artist needs details regarding.

Finally, until you decide regarding the license, may I have permission to use this piece in the final stages of our alpha testing before the website goes live and printing begins?

Thank you for your time,
Scott Reimers

Arthurian legend / Wild West... this has been done already by Stephen King. Look up The Dark Tower series of books. They're amazing also. ;)

That sounds alot like Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series. What with the knights, and King Arthur and magic six shooters. I notice someone else saw the same thing! They were even called Gunslingers in Kings magnum opus.
