Designer, illustrator and self-proclaimed nerd, Josh Lane perfectly blends hieroglyphics with mythical superheroes through his series of “hero-glyphics,” in which the likes of Spiderman, the X Men and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles get the ancient Egyptian treatment. While the illustrations are visually entertaining, they are also incredibly apt for modern times, in which many people have “left behind the gods and monsters that once peopled legends and sustained religions” and the “last supernatural beings to openly walk our world are costumed crime fighters with amazing powers.” The project creates a fantastic history for these heroes, making them seem all the more real.
