Leprechauns aren’t the only creatures clad in green

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.

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!)…
