Talos Comic Page 3 Preview Picture

Page three from my short story The Life and Death of Talos the Bronze, originally made for the independently produced 2008 anthology "Iconic" ([link]).

"Iconic" dealt with characters from classical literature and mythology in new retellings, but all with a slight twist to them. And my entry, co-scripted with fellow comic writer Phillip Clark, was based on "Jason and the Argonauts", but humorously told from the point of view of Talos; a guardian made of bronze, whom menaces the Argonauts at one point.

The comic also took a lot of inspiration from the 1963 fantasy film ( [link](1963_film) ) based on the classic tale, namely the portrayal of Talos himself, as a more fearsome being a greater, gigantic size.

"Iconic" has since become limited in its numbers and availability, so I'm currently re-coloring "The Life and Death of Talos the Bronze" for a convention exclusive I'm doing with friend and partner Hawanja ([link])

************

In this page, our leading hero Jason, and his band of Argonauts, come upon the shores of Crete, with Talos as their less-than-hospitable welcoming party.

Accompanying Jason is his voluptuous girlfriend and allied sorceress Medea; the creepy child-looking Dioskouroi Twins, Castor and Pollux; and the handsome, yet annoyed looking guy with the long hair is Acastus - Jason's best 'friend-nemy'.
