Perseus And Cetus by Jim Steranko

Cool to see a Steranko I hannae before, but...this is all Greek to me (after you're done groan'n, dunnae forgot to tip your waitperson).  Cellini's statue shows a version of the tale where Perseus first had to go slay Medusa, and holding her head in front of the sea serpent turned Cetus to stone (as in the other sculpture).  Steranko may be illustrating the version where Perseus drove his great blade into the monster's back to save the day.  Definitely dig how Steranko uses stars in his art

  2. Please excuse my modesty. I'm glad you've seen the entirity
