Cover for The Incorruptibles by John Hornor Jacobs. A black cover with the drawing in white, looking like a wood-cut. A campfire in the foreground, a steamboat on a river in the middleground, and tall mountains with dragons flying over them in the background.Starburst Magazine: (9/10) The world of The Incorruptibles is a distinctive fantasy/western hybrid, and much as in the work of David Gemmell, the nationalities portrayed are analogous to past cultures given a fantasy twist. In this case, it’s as if the Roman Empire has never fallen and has continued to dominate the world to the present, an equivalent of the late 19th century. So fused are the genres, it also wouldn’t feel amiss to see The Dark Tower’s Roland Deschain riding across the hillside.
