Alex Ross' Marvel Work Collected In 'Marvelocity'

Hefty tome due in October


The hyper-realistic painting style of Alex Ross burst onto the Marvel scene in the four-issue limited series Marvels in 1994. Since then you could see his signature style on many a cover for both Marvel and DC, and a few interior works too (such as Kingdom Come and Wonder Woman: Spirit of Truth). in 2003, a coffee table book collecting Ross' DC work was published titled Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross. Now it's Marvel's turn.

In October, the same publisher that brought Mythology, Pantheon, will be publishing Marvelocity: The Marvel Comics Art of Alex Ross. Also like with Mythology, Chip Kidd will be writing the book, this time joined by Geoff Spear. Unlike Mythology which had a foreword by M. Night Shyamalan, this time J.J. Abrams will provide introductory text. The 304 page hardcover will not only collect Ross' Marvel work, but also have 50 unpublished sketches and other artwork, and a new 10 page story featuring Spider-Man versus the Sinister Six. The book will retail for $50.00.
