Luke Cage History: From Hero for Hire to Hollywood
TV, Comic Books
Letterer and designer Todd Klein has been making his way through the alphabet for the last few years in a series of art prints that he sells on his site. Each print finds him teaming with a different writer or artist, including Steve Rude, Shawn McManus and Dave Gibbons, just to name a few.
His 10th print, which can be found below, is sponsored by the letter “J.” It finds Klein and artist Gene Ha taking a joyride into Greek mythology and the story of the Pegasus.
“Famed artist Gene Ha has illustrated a key moment from the story of Bellerophon, a hero of Greek myth, who has captured the winged horse Pegasus and returned to his lady love, Princess Philona of Lycia to give her the ride of her life,” Klein said in a press release. It’s based on a short story written by Klein, inspired by the retelling of the Pegasus myth by Nathaniel Hawthorne.
