The best-loved comic characters in the world, Superman, Batman,
Wonder Woman, the JLA and many more, have all been brought
to life thanks to the work of artist Alex Ross. Now you can
enjoy the evolution of Ross's work, from his early sketches
aged three, to his contemporary masterpieces such as Batman:

more recently the Smallville
covers he designed for TV
the name may not ring any bells with the majority of the population,
most serious comic enthusiasts will own at least one comicbook
that features a cover by the legendary Alex Ross. And if for
some strange reason you don't, then you will at least be familiar
with the majority of his subject matter.

learn about the young Ross (there are pictures of him aged
seven with a guy dressed as Superman - who has too much of

are in for a treat.

Ross illustrated and co-wrote with Chip Kid. This is a great

Both artists I admire, and both have a similar style.
