    Alex Ross Marvels Trade Paperback Painted Cover Original Art (Marvel, c. 2001). The entire history of the Marvel Silver Age is symbolized in this single iconic masterpiece. The 1994 mini-series Marvels was a breakthrough for its creators, artist Alex Ross and writer Kurt Busiek. The saga presented the spectacle of Marvel comics history -- the awe-inspiring superheroes and cosmos-shaking battles, all told from the perspective of Phil Sheldon, the newspaper photographer who witnesses "the marvels" from ground level. Alex Ross' rich, lush, photorealistic style established his fan-favorite status and made this story a landmark event. This cover scene spotlighting the Amazing Spider-Man in his new role as a news photographer, has a matted image area of 9.75" x 14.5", is on standard board, and it has been matted and framed to an overall size of 20" x 25". The art is in Excellent condition, and Alex Ross signed the piece at the lower right.
