THIS ENTRY CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR SEASON TWO OF 'CLASS OF THE TITANS'. IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED, THEN PLEASE DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER. THANK YOU.
Though Tuesday is not usually a regular posting day at the blog
, director Brad Goodchild
has posted several items of note today. First off are pages of artwork
from Roger Lancelyn Green's 'Tales of Greeks and Trojans' -- the show's character designs for Achilles and Theseus, drawn by Season One senior character designer Kenny Park
, were heavily influenced by the book's versions of the heroes, as evident in the artwork posted. Also at the entry is more information from Mr. Goodchild himself about the book itself and others, especially the artists.
The second major item of note is that another Season Two episode title
and, by proxy, character has been revealed -- the episode that will be voice-recorded this Wednesday is titled Tantalize This
(we are no longer matching episode numbers with the titles, as Teletoon will change them). Given the title, it is safe to say that the mythological character of Tantalus will be introduced, though we do not yet know how much of his story and related characters will be included.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the myth, which is admittedly a more obscure one -- Tantalus was the kind of Sipylus and father of Pelops, the latter of whom gave his name to the southern area of Greece known as the Peloponnesus. Tantalus is also an ancestor of Agamemnon and Menelaus, for those of you who are more Trojan Saga-inclined. He's also where we get our word 'tantalize' from, hence the title -- as punishment from the gods for feeding his son, Pelops, to them, he was doomed to be forever hungry and thirsty (ie. tantalized) in the Underworld.
