Description

    Alex Ross Superman: Doomsday and Beyond Book Cover Painting Original Art (Bantam Books, 1993). As Doomsday surfaced from within the Earth, pounding his way toward Metropolis, nobody anticipated that Superman would finally meet his match -- that the Man of Steel would have to risk his own life to put a stop to Doomsday's destructive rage. Now all the world is in mourning. What will happen to Lois Lane, Ma and Pa Kent, and the rest of humankind? Where is Clark Kent? And what about all the rumors of Superman's return? Is Superman's body really missing from its tomb in Centennial Park? And who are the four mysterious super-beings, each claiming to be Superman? Here, for the first time, is the complete story -- the events leading up to and following Superman's epic battle with Doomsday. And witness, at last, the ultimate fate of the world's greatest superhero. This book collection had it all, including this iconic painted cover by Alex Ross. According to Mythology, the monograph on the artist, this stunning image was Ross's first published work for DC and the first time he drew Superman in an official capacity, greatly adding to the art's importance. This Man of Tomorrow masterwork has an image area of 12.5" x 17.5", the art is in Excellent condition. Signed at the lower left.
