I came across this site while doing a Google image search for the Atalanta and Peleus wrestling vase. The drawings are great! I like the connection of Greek heroes and superheroes (a topic we discussed in my Ancient World & film class last year), and some of the choices are quite clever. I like Batman and Odysseus, for example (less sure about Jason and Superman, although I guess Superman is always stringing poor Lois along).
Check it out and let me know what you think!
