Kill The Minotaur has hit the shelves! The first issue just came out, and it’s already impressing the fans. An expansive and impressive reimagining of the classic greek Myth of Theseus and the Minotaur that has already been called everything from “a massive tale of violence and sacrifice that is laced with a fair amount of horror and darkness” to simply “grindhouse-y.”
Most of you know the age old story: Athens lost the war to Crete and now they must pay tribute to King Minos by offering up their best citizens to his unearthly labyrinth and the terror contained within it.
We sat down with the artist of the book, Lukas Ketner, who is an Skybound alumn from Witch Doctor! He was a 2009 nominee for the Russ Manning Award for his work on that book, which has earned praise from fans and creators alike! (Seriously check it out, it’s a great title and available if you click right HERE). His other work includes stories for Dark Horse Comics’ Creepy Comics and Supersized: Strange Tales From a Fast-Food Culture, along with covers for BOOM! Studios’ Hellraiser title. His art is beautiful and terrifying and we’re really excited for you to see what he gets to do in the later issues of this book!
Lukas and I talked not only about Kill the Minotaur but about his career and working as an artist in the industry as a whole! He gave us some great knowledge on how to work as an artist in comics, and how to get started if you’re an aspiring young talent. He gave some great advice, and really broke down habits that you should build if you’re serious about making this into a career and not just a hobby.
