Alex Ross Debuts New X-Men & Captain America Art For Comic-Con

Art dealer Sal Abbinanti has unveiled two new Alex Ross lithographs that will be available next month at Comic-Con International.

Ross, who’s been reaching back into Marvel history for a series of variant covers celebrating the publisher’s 75th anniversary, here depicts the 1970s X-Men lineup and a fairly timeless Captain America.

“I recognized with this opportunity that I could do that original group as they were costumed when Neal Adams drew them,” Ross explained. “It was more fun than I’d ever expected, and it allowed me to scratch an itch I never did before. For all the times I’ve drawn them, I’d never explored that period. I was either doing their earlier costumes or the All-New, All-Different X-Men.”

Comic-Con International will be held July 24-27 in San Diego.



This Spider-Man Litho will also be available

Amazing Spider-Man #1.2 Cover by Alex Ross

Amazing Spider-Man #1.2 will be written by Dan Slott with art by Ramon Perez and an amazing cover by Alex Ross.

J. Jonah’s Jameson’s crusade against Spider-Man kicks into overdrive! He warned us! He told us that kids might try to emulate Spider-Man! And he was right. In the June issue, we’ll meet Clash, New York’s newest menace. He may be Spidey’s biggest fan, but he’s about to become one of his worst enemies.

Wanted by the cops, turned away by the Fantastic Four, his grades are slipping, and he still hasn’t figured out this whole crime-fighting-thing. Pete’s not a hero… not yet… but he’ll get there. Somehow.

Batman and The Green Hornet Team Up For A Comic Book Crossover By Kevin Smith & Ralph Garmin


Filmmaker and comic-book writer Kevin Smith teams with fellow Bat-fan, comedian and KROQ radio personality Ralph Garman, for a DC Comics/Dynamite Entertainment crossover comic book set in the groovy days of the superheroes’ 1960s TV shows. 

Batman ’66 Meets the Green Hornet launches as a 12-part, digital-first biweekly series beginning May 21,2014 and will debut in comic shops as a print comic on June 4, 2014.


Teaming with artist Ty Templeton, Smith and Garman are treating the story like a missing “lost” sequel to the 1967 Batman two-parter that brought the Hornet and Kato to Gotham City to foil a counterfeit-stamp ring run by the mustachioed, pink-suited villain Colonel Gumm (Roger C. Carmel).

Alex Ross’ painted cover to “Batman ’66 Meets The Green Hornet” gives new life to the characters from the ’60s shows: clockwise from top, Batman (played by Adam West), Kato (Bruce Lee), Green Hornet (Van Williams) and Robin (Burt Ward).
