Walk Like an Egyptian. Or Sit. Sitting’s Good, Too.

24 Comic Covers Starring the Mysterious Sphinx

Ask the pros, and they’ll tell you the tricks of the trade. You want to show readers your story is set in Washington, D.C.? Boom, Superman’s soaring past the Washington Monument. You want them to see Batman is chasing down bad guys in Paris? Boom, he’s swinging down from the Eiffel Tower.

London? Big Ben.

San Francisco? Golden Gate Bridge.

Anywhere in India? The Taj Mahal.

China? Great Wall of China.

Egypt? The Great Pyramid of Giza… and the Sphinx!

Depicting a mythical creature with the body of a lion and the head of a man, the Great Sphinx of Giza is one of the world’s oldest and largest statues, but that’s about all we know about it. Why it was built, who built it and when it was built — nobody knows for sure.

One thing we do know: you don’t want to be anywhere near the thing when it gets up and starts shooting laser beams from its eyes.
