“Egyptian Creative Story by Khalil David-Lewis”. This articular piece interested me due to the fact that I have always had a fascination in Egyptian mythology. This picture represents a theme that can be seen in most if not all mythologies, a struggle for power. The struggle begins with the two Egyptian gods, Set and Osiris. Set kills Osiris and takes his thrown. In vengeance Osiris’ son Horus takes back the thrown for himself. Since Osiris is dead he cannot rule the earth, but the underworld instead. I like the style of this peace because it reminds me of the typical comic book art style that I enjoy from the more darker and modern era of comics. It shows the violent history behind this religion and still stays true the mythology. The color scheme truly represents the sandy environment that the Egyptian culture is stationed in.
