"Ross is the Caravaggio of caped crusaders..." - Neil Steinberg, Chicago "Marvelocity is everything a Ross fan could want in a coffee-table book, showcasing his mastery of covers, concepts, and content. There are original photo references, sketches that showcase his early evolution as a designer, and even adorable childhood scribblings. One walks away from Marvelocity realizing Alex Ross is truly sui generis and unlikely to ever be matched. - Abraham Riesman, Vulture. ALEX ROSS studied illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, then honed his craft as a storyboard artist before entering the comics field. His miniseries Marvels (Marvel Comics, 1993) opened a wider acceptance for painted comics. He moved on to produce the equally successful Kingdom Come (DC Comics, 1996). His extensive work for DC/Vertigo includes Absolute Justice League, Uncle Sam, Astro City, Justice, and Justice Society of America. Ross has continued producing work for Marvel Comics, including the Earth X trilogy, Spider-Man, and the Avengers. His work outside of comics includes magazine and album covers, as well as the poster for the 2002 Academy Awards®. Ross is currently creating a variety of art prints, including works of the Beatles, Universal Monsters, and Disney characters, among others.

FROM THE TEAM THAT BROUGHT YOU THE EISNER-AWARD WINNING MYTHOLOGY: THE DC COMICS ART OF ALEX ROSS Here is the beloved Marvel Universe of comics characters, brought to thrilling life as only Alex Ross can. They’re all here: Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Black Panther, and many more—all seeming to leap, blast, and launch off the page. For almost thirty years, Ross has been working nonstop to create some of the most astonishing images in comics, and while Marvelocity collects the very best of that oeuvre, it’s much more than that. Inside are hundreds of drawings, paintings, and photographs that have never been published before, including an original ten-page story featuring Spider-Man versus the Sinister Six, redesign proposals for the X-Men and the Fantastic Four, and a re-creation of an epic battle between the Sub-Mariner and Iron Man. But this isn’t just the story of the Marvel characters—it’s also the incredibly inspiring true tale of a little boy who only ever wanted to draw and paint super heroes. And with enough determination, talent, and very hard work, that’s precisely what he did. Marvelocity is the result, and is sure to entrance and delight fans of all ages.
Espectacular El libro increíble. Una pena que las últimas portadas que hizo para Amazing Spider-man salgan en tamaño reducido. Eso sí defraudado con las reservas de Amazon. El libro lo reservé a 55€ y el día que sale a la venta lo ponen a 44€. Se te queda cara de idiota.
