6 comps for a novel based on the life of Billy The Kid. The design on the far left of image 1 is the approved cover.
There's a passage of dialogue in the book where The Kid relates his belief that there's one bullet out there (flying around in the ether, I guess) meant for each of us. For him, life is what you make of the time before your body and your bullet intersect. The first 4-5 comps were based on this concept.
