The Four Horsemen of the Apocalype are described in the last book of the Bible – ‘The Book of Revelation’ of Jesus Christ to saint John the Evangelist.! It tells us of a book/scroll in God’s right hand that is sealed by seven seals. The Lamb of God opens the first four of the seals, which summons four horses driven by four riders – Conquest, War, Famine and Death. These horsemen are set to bring about Apocalypse upon the world.
Now that being said, this was inspired by the writers of XMen to bring about their new villain – Apocalypse. Who you had seen in the ending credits of XMen: Days of Future Past along with the four horsemen.
Artist Daniel Karamudin drew this impressive artwork of the Four Horsemen which made my jaws drop.
