More Powerful Than A Locomotive (Action Comics # 1 Tribute) Print By Alex Ross

This year marks an iconic moment in comic book history: Superman’s 80th Birthday! In May 1938, Action Comics #1 introduced Superman to the world.

To celebrate this anniversary, Alex Ross is releasing “More Powerful than a Locomotive,” a tribute to Action Comics #1. Originally created for Superman: The Complete History — The Life and Times of the Man of Steel, Ross reinterprets this iconic scene in his own distinctive style, converting it from day to night and transforming the comic-illustrated Superman into the photorealistic Man of Steel. 

“Most people coming to comics realize the historical importance of Superman,” Ross shares. “But I’ve always loved very specific traits of the character, and in fact, very specific versions. When I saw some reprints of the oldest comics with him, from the ’40s, I immediately fell in love with the art style from then. He looked very serious, very rough and ready… a character built for the era of the Second World War. I like to connect with that earliest version of him, to bring him back to those roots.

This print will have a limited advance release at C2E2 on April 6, with 10 pieces available at the convention and 10 pieces available online. The piece will have a full online release on April 18, the original release date of Action Comics #1.

Each signed-and-numbered artwork measures 16″ X 22″, includes a Certificate of Authenticity, and is printed on premium, 110-lb fine art paper.

Fans and collectors can join the wait list at Alex Ross Art starting March 30 at 10 a.m. ET, with a per-poster price of $195.

Dark Hall Mansion To Release Yellow Submarine Print By Alex Ross On February 26, 2015

Dark Hall Mansion is thrilled to reveal its latest officially licensed Beatles limited edition release: “Yellow Submarine” by preeminent comic book artist, Alex Ross, on sale Thursday, February 26th, 2015.

Dark Hall Mansion, working with Apple Corps Ltd and Bravado International, their North American licensing agent, will release Alex’s singular vision of the Beatles’ groundbreaking 1968 masterpiece, “Yellow Submarine.” Driven by the Beatles legendary music and inspired by the generation’s new trends in art, the film resides with the dazzling styles of Pop Art, yet it’s “Yellow Submarine’s” art direction and production design by Heinz Edelmann that most defined the film’s pioneering look, and it’s in this spirit of unique innovation and creativity that Alex Ross’s highly unusual take can best be appreciated. Alex has often been referred to as ‘the Norman Rockwell of comics’ yet his “Yellow Submarine” piece reveals the similarly powerful influence of master surrealist Salvador Dali, whom Alex has also recognized as a guiding influence on his style. His Blue Meanies are a sight to behold as is his overarching composition that does justice to the sweep of this legendary animated classic. Alex has commented prior on the body of his career’s work noting, “Hopefully by painting the work, you gain a sense of life and believability that will draw the reader in a little more,” and this is dynamically manifest in his massive 6-foot original painting for the Beatle’s “Yellow Submarine.”

Alex has worked on countless high profile projects, legendary comic book characters, Hollywood studios, a print for the Academy Awards, and so much more but he is very well known at this stage of his career for taking on projects of personal relevance and resonance most of all, and it’s in this context that he enthusiastically accepted Dark Hall Mansion’s invitation to a Beatles project, being an enormous fan of the world’s most famous band. Let Alex’s words convey just what the Beatles personally means to him and how meaningful “Yellow Submarine” is as well:

“For as long as I can remember hearing music, I have loved the Beatles. Not only do I believe they are the greatest musical group of all time, but also one of the greatest things to have happened in human history. “Yellow Submarine” has also been one of my favorite films since I was six years old. The opportunity to work with the Beatles’ likenesses in the very inspired context of the “Yellow Submarine” film is an absolute dream come true. There is so much I love about these men, their legacy, and this film.”

It doesn’t get any more clear and his “Yellow Submarine” piece is all Alex. This is the first time Alex has ever done a Beatles project and he was given little constraint, so it’s safe to say all involved on the project, from LA to London, where shocked on receiving a note and attachment one day revealing a stunning 6-foot painting and just exactly how passionate Alex really was about this project! Please see some very special candid progress images of Alex’s piece in development for DHM, attached, each showing him at work on the original painting in his private studio. We’re certain you’ll be impressed!

DHM’s Alex Ross Beatles “Yellow Submarine” limited editions are meticulously printed by Alex’s longstanding personal printer of choice and will be released by Dark Hall Mansion in exact scale to his original painting via limited edition canvas and paper editions. Both Beatles and Alex Ross fans worldwide will have an opportunity to own an officially licensed Beatles, full scale, 72-inch Alex Ross “Yellow Submarine” canvas or paper edition, each personally signed by the artist.

Dark Hall Mansion’s signed Alex Ross “Yellow Submarine” paper edition, limited to a worldwide run of just 295 pieces, will price at $375, while the select signed Alex Ross “Yellow Submarine” canvas edition, with only 125 editions available worldwide, will price at $550.

All Editions go on sale Thursday, Feb 26, 2015 at Dark Hall Mansion. They’ll go on sale on our dedicated Store page at 9:30 AM PST HERE.
