Thirteen years after his Eisner Award-winning, nationally best-selling Mythology–here is the long-awaited Marvel Comics counterpart, a retrospective celebration of the other half of the comics galaxy that is currently ruling the world: Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Panther, the Avengers, the X-Men, Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Fantastic Four.
“Alex is a legend. Even if you don’t consider yourself a comics-head, you should check out his work to see what the best of the form has to offer.” –Ta-Nehisi Coates
As he did for the DC characters in Mythology, Alex Ross now brings the heroes of the Marvel universe into dynamic life as never before. Marvelocity includes more than 50 never-been-published sketches, working models, and other preparatory art, and a 14-panel portfolio gallery of Marvel’s most beloved characters. And Ross has written a new 10-page story pitting Spider-Man against the Sinister Six–the webslinger’s most popular villains–that ends with a stunning twist.
Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with the artist to discuss Marvelocity, what differentiates Marvel from DC, and why cover star Captain America still looks good in his original costume. Check out that discussion HERE.
With an introduction by J. J. Abrams, the 304 page hardcover book, Marvelocity: The Marvel Comics Art of Alex Ross will be released by Pantheon on October 2, 2018.
