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.

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.

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.

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).
