The Hero Complex Gallery exhibition Sci-Scapes opened recently and it features artwork by Joshua Budich, Tim Anderson, Tim Doyle, as well as others, each of whom provided artwork inspired by Moebius, Katsuhiro Otomo, and Geof Darrow. But it’s the combined work of Josan Gonzalez and Laurie Greasley that really took us aback!
Their piece “The Raid” is a mashup of some of sci-fi, horror, and anime’s most iconic characters, all of whom are engaged in a massive battle that brings blood, gore, and violence. The final result is a smorgasbord of characters that becomes a veritable “Where’s Waldo?” of trying to identify each person contained within the piece. The obvious ones are from Akira, Blade Runner, Alien, Ghost in the Shell, and Blade but there are ones that will be a mite more challenging to recall. How many can you identify?
