Pressestimmen

“Alex’s unique style combines the best of the fantastic and the real, creating a world where myths walk and leave tangible footprints in the sand.”

–Paul Levitz, President and Publisher, DC Comics

Synopsis

The best-loved comic characters in the world - Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the JLA and many more - are all brought to life by the number one fan-favourite artist working in the medium today, the incomparable Alex Ross. This book reveals Ross's lifelong love of these classic super heroes and his vision - taking you into the studio for a behind-the-scenes look at his creative process, with hundreds of never-before seen sketches, limited edition prints, and prototype sculptures. Ross's dynamic art combines with Chip Kidd's kinetic design to make his most memorable stories soar off the page. Plus a new, exclusive Superman-Batman story, written by Kidd and painted by Ross! -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Alex Ross' comic art is stunning. There are comics where the characters are brought to life by the art and story, but you know they are still created from imagination. With Alex Ross, it's like he's drawing a character that really exists. His sense of realism is unparalleled. He blurs the line between fantasy and reality.

He's compared often with Norman Rockwell and it's apt. He, too, uses photographic references to amazing results. However, Alex Ross is in a class of his own too

This book is packed with breathtaking paintings, many are full page. There are also sketches and accompanying commentary talking from anything about his childhood, comic characters and influences like Andrew Loomis and various comic artists. There are lots to read. There's a section which details his drawing process, from getting a reference, to inking and then colouring.

Although there are no chapters, the content is grouped by the superheroes he drew, namely Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Shazam, The Justice Society, The Justice League, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern, Plastic Man, Green Arrow, Hawkman, The Atom, The Flash, Supergirl, Batgirl and a whole lot more. These superheroes must have felt honored to be drawn by Alex Ross.

This book is really value for money with 320 pages of top quality art. Highly recommended to all artists and comic fans.

Mit großen Spannung habe ich auf dieses Buch gewartet und wurde nicht enttäuscht.
Eine fantastische Sammlung von neuen und alten Zeichnungen.
Man erhält einen großen Einblick in den Werdegang des Künstlers, der bereits im Alter von 2 ein Superman-Fan war.
Hervorragende Qualität der Zeichnungen, von Bleistiftskizzen bis hin zu sehr gelungen Farbillustrationen ist für jeden Geschmack etwas dabei.
Besonderes Highlight ist eine Abbildung von kleinen Pappsuperhelden die Ross als Kind selbst angefertigt hat.
Ein Buch das in keiner Ross Sammlung fehlen darf!!!

Das Buch ist etwas größer als Din A 4 Format und ein Paperback. Die Seiten sind dick und das Buch ist gut gebunden. Es enthält nicht nur Geschichten, sondern Zeichnungen, Skizzen und Fotos. Also eher noch etwas Hintergrund als reine Geschichten.

HASH(0x9bd9bf18) von 5 Sternen Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross 23. Oktober 2003
Von S. M. Van Briesen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I had forgotten I ordered this until it came in the mail today. It's a pretty amazing piece of work. If you are an artist (like me) it's almost a text book on how to do it correctly. I found the highlight to be the last few pages of the book where Mr. Ross explains exactly how he created the cover from initial concept sketches to photography through finished art. The book also contains several things I'd never seen before or had just seen poorly printed or web versions of. Just amazing. Well worth the asking price.

HASH(0x9daee30c) von 5 Sternen The magic of superheroes, recaptured 9. Januar 2004
Von Jay Dickson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Alex Ross brought a new technique and style to superhero artwork that had never quite been seen before in comics. Working almost exclusively in watercolor gouache, he brought a photorealistic style that takes almost everyone's breath away. It marvelously recaptures the essential thrill of comic books: the fantasy of what it would be like if a man could really fly, or run at incredible speeds, or had a magic ring that could do anything. He's often been compared to Norman Rockwell (in his hyperrealism and love of dramatic facial expression), but Ross is his own artist. His intense love of dramatic composition, lighting, and figural motion suggests his roots also extend to the greats of comic artwork, including Dick Sprang, Steve Ditko, Gil Kane, and Neal Adams.
This wonderful collection captures many of his childhood attempts at art and documents not only his changing style but also his creative process (using live and inanimate models, photography, and high-contrast lighting). It also showcases a plethora of his best work for DC, and even includes many rare and uncollected images done for fan publications and even a collector's plates series (!). The fancy-shmancy book design by designer and comics fan Chip Kidd is sometimes a drawback (too many images are sometimes crammed into one doublepage spread, reducing the detail to the detriment of all the images), but the book is terrific nonetheless. It greatly benefits from commentary by Ross throughout explaining what he finds interesting and exciting about each classic Golden and Silver Age comics character.

HASH(0x9c5738b8) von 5 Sternen Incredible Book 31. Oktober 2003
Von Kathy Quackenbush - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
If you are as big a fan as me of Alex Ross, then rush out a find a copy of this book. No matter what. It gives everything you need to know about his art and the stories behind them. It shows the evolutions of his characters and his backgrounds into how they came to be. If you are in love with comics and the characters then get this. It really shows his love for them as well. From full page spreads to single sketchbook black and white shots, its has it all. Chip Kidd did a wonderful job putting it together and the book is a great read as well. I've been waiting a long time for the definitive Alex Ross book and it's finally here. It's worth every penny.

HASH(0x9daf1678) von 5 Sternen Visually fantastic! 7. November 2003
Von talos72 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
If you have to buy just one published book or comic having to do with Alex Ross, "Mythology" is it. The book is, for the most part, a visual retrospective on Alex Ross' works on DC characters. This edition is thin on text, but heavy on well reproduced yet great artwork. I, being an illustrator myself, really appreciate all the rough drawings and sketches included in the book, because they really show you the methode to Ross' madness.
I also recommend this book for those interested in learning illustration techniques and watercolor. Interestingly enough, you learn a great deal by observing how Ross tries to capture light and color through his work. There is even a page mentioning Andrew Loomis, the great late illustrator and one of Ross' influences. One can definitly see how the artist has drawn inspiration from the golden age illustrators and those of the 40's and 50's. His depiction of Superman is by far my favorit.
