Josh Lane's hero illustrations depict characters like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in an ancient Egyptian, hieroglyphic style. The series also features Wolverine, the Avengers, Spiderman, Star Trek, Power Rangers and the cast of Kick Ass. Not only are these geeky characters featured in an unusual, yet classic style, they are shown doing interesting things. The ninja turtles, for example, appear to be offering a pizza to their rat sensei while another seems to imply Professor X is a god.

The hero illustrations are well done, but are equally entertaining if you attempt to understand the message being told through there 'hero-glyphics.' The artistic prints were completed on 100% cotton rags and archival paper using Epson K3 archival inks.
