As St. Patrick’s Day celebrations cover most of the world, we’re nearly overwhelmed with images of leprechauns, or little men that represent fairies from ancient Irish folklore. Yet these aren’t the only magical beings man has imagined clad in green.
Here’s an ode to some of the brilliant sci-fi, comic, and fantasy artists out there who have taken popular characters from books, films, and more and added their own creative spin.
Speaking of Lord of the Rings…
And though this is not exactly sci-fi or fantasy, no St. Patty’s Day would be without the Green Man from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (a show I had the opportunity of being in!)…

In lieu of news that Ron Howard and team are turning King’s epic western/fantasy novels into a television series and set of three films, I wanted to share some of the amazing artwork created for Marvel’s Comic Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born. It’ll give you a taste of the dark insanity you’re in store for!
The incredible team who ‘created’ it: Robin Furth, Peter David, Jae Lee, Richard Isanove, Chris Eliopoulos, Chuck Verrill and Stephen King.
