Alex Ross (American, b.1970)

Comic Book Art

Alex Ross was born in Portland, Oregon, and raised in Lubbock, Texas. In 1993, after graduating from the American Academy of Art, Alex collaborated with Marvel Comics editor Kurt Busiek to create Marvels, a graphic novel which examined the Marvel superheroes from the perspective of an ordinary man. The book's critical success demonstrated Alex's affection for the characters through both detail and believability. Many fans were astonished by Ross’ uncannily realistic portrayals of Spider-Man, Captain America, The Fantastic Four, The X-Men, Silver Surfer, The Human Torch and others.

Afterwards, Busiek, Ross and penciller Brent Anderson created Astro City, first published by Image Comics in 1995 and later published by Homage Comics. In 1996, Ross teamed-up with writer Mark Waid for the DC Comics mini-series Kingdom Come, which helped cement Ross' place as a comic book industry superstar. He followed it with Uncle Sam, a non-superhero work.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Ross painted tabloid-sized comic books celebrating the 60th anniversaries of DC Comics’ Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel, respectively, as well as two books featuring the all-star Justice League. He has also designed much DC merchandise, including posters, dinner plates and statues.

In 2001, Ross gained acclaim for his work on special comic books benefiting the families of those killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks, including his portraits of paramedics, police and firefighters.

In 2004, DC compiled the coffee table book Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross, written and designed by Chip Kidd.

His numerous awards include a 1997 Will Eisner Award and two nominations for Kingdom Come, a 1998 National Cartoonists Society Comic Book Award for Superman: Peace on Earth, and a nomination for the Comics Buyer's Guide Award for Favorite Colorist in 2000
