Outlander Fans!

The MacKenzies are Here!

Check out the new photo of the new family: Roger, Brianna and Jemmy MacKenzie:

Last month New York Comic Con held an art contest that would give the winner a “swanky” trip to the convention for the Outlander panel and have their art used in a poster for the autograph session with the attending cast members.

One of the entries really caught my attention, but I had to wait for the contest to be complete before I could post anything. That art was created by Kumu Pepper who can be followed on Instagram at @kumu.art.

Thanks to the folks at Outlander TV News you can see just some of those great entries here.

Outlander will be back for the start of its fifth season on Starz on Sunday, February 16, 2020.

Mark your calendars!
