In the vein of acclaimed and fan-favorite Alex Ross books such as Mythologies and Rough Justice, we are proud to present the ultimate collection of Alex Ross art from his extensive collaboration with Dynamite, The Dynamite Art of Alex Ross. Containing sketches, designs, layouts and pencils, interior work, covers, and a wealth of unpublished art, The Dynamite Art of Alex Ross can be found at comic stores everywhere this coming November!
Collecting all of Alex’s Dynamite covers and interior art in one complete hardcover volume, along with commentary throughout the book by Alex Ross himself, as well as special bonus material, this is a package not to be missed. A must-buy for Alex Ross’ legion of fans!
“For all people who had been interested in my art before but may not have taken a close look at the many projects I’ve served on with Dynamite Entertainment, this book is the perfect collection of all of that work in one,” says legendary artist Alex Ross. “I’m thrilled to finally have a portfolio-like collection of these images that can stand next to my work with other publishers.”
“Alex Ross’s artwork hit the comics industry like an atom bomb, ushering in a new era of heroic realism,” states Marvels and Kirby: Genesis collaborator Kurt Busiek. “And the shockwaves are still echoing. I’ve been working with Alex for over 20 years now, and new work from him is always a thrill.”
“To say that Alex Ross’ work with Dynamite Entertainment contributed to the success of our company is a HUGE understatement of his importance,” says Dynamite Entertainment President and Publisher Nick Barrucci. “I am humbled and grateful that Alex has decided to make his home at Dynamite for the past several years. Wait until you see what we have coming up next!”
