Josh Ln’s ‘Hero-Glyphics’ Take Pop Culture Back To Ancient Egypt With The Avengers, The X-Men And More

Heroglyphics by Josh Ln

When you think about ancient Egyptian superheroes, there aren’t a whole lot that come to mind. Apocalypse was around back then, right? And presumably there was some version of Moon Knight running around before the Fist of Khonshu was a dude who hung out with a French helicopter pilot, but really, that’s all that comes to mind off the top of my head. But what if… what if… there were more?

That is the question that artist Josh Ln has answered in a series of prints called “Hero-Glyphics” that he “excavated and restored,” presumably from a pyramid that was just full of pitfalls and tripwires connected to poison arrows. Check ‘em bout below to see hieroglyphic-style reimaginings of some of our favorite characters! And also Kick Ass.

If you’d like to add a little history to your walls (or if you just want to freak out visitors with the sight of cartoon-accurate TMNT heads on lanky hieroglyphic bodies, something that is reasonably disconcerting), you can buy prints of these important historical artifacts for $34 each!
