Alex Ross is the Norman Rockwell of comics. But he is more than that. He is a classic American success story: Once upon a time, a lonely little boy in Lubbock, Texas turned to comics and super heroes for friendship. They saved him, and twenty years later he returned the favor.
MYTHOLOGY: THE DC COMICS ART OF ALEX ROSS marks the first time outside of the comics market that a hardcover trade volume will feature the entire DC Comics universe of super heroes as imagined by a single visual artist. Over the past decade, Ross's classically trained, hyper-realistic style has broken new ground and expanded the boundaries of how super heroic figures can be portrayed. In addition to collecting the highlights of Ross's considerable career at DC Comics, MYTHOLOGY will include hundreds of never-before-seen sketches and new material, including an original Superman and Batman story written by Chip Kidd, and a re-telling of Robin's origin written by Emmy Award-winning writer/producer Paul Dini (Batman: The Animated Series). Geoff Spear, the award-winning photographer (Peanuts: The Art of Charles M. Schultz, The Little Friend, Seek My Face) shot all of the material from Ross's original artwork. M. Night Shymalan, the acclaimed director of Signs and The Sixth Sense is writing the introduction. 'Alex portrays his characters as human beings,' Shymalan has said, 'they are affected by the events in their lives in real ways. You can see both the strengths and the weaknesses in his heroes, making them more universal.'
