I only wish there was a little more words to read.

This is a great book, that highlights the art work of Alex Ross, that he completed for Dynamite art, as well as some Marvel issues of the Invaders.

Alex Ross' third art book has as much impact as Mythology and Rough Justice. However, it's a little different from those two books.

It features art for the lesser known superheroes (to me) from Dynamite. Most of the characters are new to me, like those from Project Superpowers, Kirby: Genesis. There's also The Torch, Bionic Man, Green Hornet, Flash Gordon Zeitgeist, The Shadow and even Voltron (yes, that Voltron). There are sketches, designs, layouts, pencils, panels and plenty of covers.

Having gotten used to seeing DC superheroes like Superman and Batman from Alex Ross, I wasn't expecting a whole new cast of characters in the book. The art for Kirby: Genesis is quite radical with the wild costumes and unfamiliar colour palette.

The bulk of the book features completely new art so there's no duplication with the earlier art books. This one's a 328-page hardcover. Many illustrations come with short commentary from Alex Ross. The art is fantastic, very typical of Alex Ross' style of realism and lighting.

This is another impressive art book for those who can't get enough of Alex Ross.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

I just purchased this yesterday and wow, this might even be cooler than Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross or Rough Justice: The DC Comics Sketches of Alex Ross. The product values are top notch, with bright, vivid colors and paper quality as nice as you'd want from this type of deluxe package. Unlike many other top talents, Ross seems to be getting better with age; I'd stack this stuff up against the best of his DC work.

And suprisingly, you don't miss icons like Superman or Captain America; seeing Ross take on classic Golden Age heroes like the Phantom, Green Arrow, Flash Gordon and many more is a pure delight and has a freshness his DC work was lacking. We've seen what an Alex Ross Batman or Green Lantern looks like before (thanks to the amazingly gorgeous Absolute Justice, something you definitely want in the oversized 'Absolute' format), so seeing him on a whole new roster of superheroes brings a level of excitement to what Ross offers.

If you're a fan of comic books or painted adventure art, this is a definite "must own". Highly recommended!

I'm a forever fan of Alex Ross and this book is a marvel to flip through.
I could stare at his paintings for hours.
Great collection of work he's done for Dynamite.

If you own Mythology, this book is very similiar. It's oversized pages filled with amazing artwork is not littered by alot of narrative explanations of his work, it simply speaks for itself. It's brilliant in every way. The book boasts hundreds of covers and dozens of character studies that really does come from a different place than we've been used to.

Most people are accustomed to all of his majestic, almost god-like depections of the DC universe. This book seems to come from a deep recess that goes into much darker characters. By doing that, you can really see the array of color use in his work. Ross' range of ability is absolutely stunning in this massive hard cover. If you're a fan of Alex's work, this is a MUST have.

I believe this is historically one of the BEST books for all aspiring comic book artist or artist in general. Each and EVERy picture within this book wields amazing reference to the human anatomy and serves as great source of reference to use for yourself if you also create art. From the paintings, to the storyboard sketches and character concept sketches everything is done with expert detail, but hey it is Alex "FREAKIN" Ross!!! What more would you expect. Anywho, I could go on, and on about how phenominal the art is in this book so I'll also say that it opens ones eyes to other outlets in the comic world aside for the powerhouse companies of Marvel and DC Comics. Alot of the heroes/heroines portrayed in this book I've NEVER heard of, yet (even though they tend to come off as very OLDSCHOOL), all of them look amazing and are interesting. One of my new favorites so far is Black Terror! With that being said if you are an artist go and buy this TODAY!!! If your are someone who appreciates very well done arts this is a definite buy. My only complaint is that this book is a hardback other than that...GO BUY TODAY!!!
