See AMERICAN GODS’ Concept Art for Vulcan’s Weapons, and More from Behind the Scenes

Introduced in the latest episode of American Gods, Vulcan (the god of fire and weaponry) is the first Old God we’ve met who has bought into the appeal of the New Gods, going on to franchise himself. In the eyes of Mr. Wednesday, Vulcan has sold out in exchange for a comfortable existence where he receives worship and belief–sustenance, basically–every time a bullet labeled with his brand is fired.

If you’re itching for more Vulcan, you’ve come to the right place. Every week American Gods showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green and co-producer Loretta Ramos take to Twitter to share behind-the-scenes tidbits for each episode. Sometimes it’s concept art, or a look at prop details, or photos of the actors in between shots.

Vulcan appeared a bit before Mr. Wednesday and Shadow rolled into Vulcan’s town. Did you notice the brands of bullets being used in the opening sequences?

Vulcan’s brand has some style, don’t you think?

This episode was all about the night shoots and fake precipitation, apparently.

Who doesn’t want to see pictures of Ian McShane and Corbin Bernsen being fabulous together?

Edward Hopper, an artist known for his oil paintings and prints, influenced the look of Vulcan’s town.

I can’t blame Ricky Whittle for taking a closer look at Vulcan’s trophies.

Vulcan forges an impressive looking blade for Mr. Wednesday, and he has just the forge for it.

This isn’t the first time Fuller and Green have forged a sword together; they also worked on a blade for Heroes.

I leave you with these slightly disturbing images of Vulcan’s head and excellent pun from Green.

What was your impression of Vulcan? Were you surprised by Mr. Wednesday taking him out? Let me know in the comments.
