Sidewinder Vol-1

My name is Dennis and i am a Catholic illustrator, this is our first title called Sidewinder and I am trying to get this out by the summer.
The story takes place in the distant future where the human race is recovering from a galactic crusade against the chimera, after the war what is left of the chimera has scattered into the vast darkness of space, and the age of colonization of the outer systems of the galaxy has begun. As a result, many colonist made up of survivors of the war and half breeds of the chimera are spreading through the galaxy looking for land, wealth, and a better life.
This title is a Sci-Fi graphic novel and it has a lot of Catholic overtones, its geared towards teens and up, it does have some violence cause its a western in space but it has a lot of action, good vs evil, bad guys and cool space and gun battles. Please feel free to cruise around my website or blog spot, or better yet type in ADVENT MEDIA on facebook and leave me some feedback, i would love to know what you guys think?
