    Description

    Alex Ross Kurt Busiek's Astro City #6 "Winged Victory" Pitch Illustration Original Art (Image, 1995). Astro City is both one of the most loving tributes to comics in general (and the Silver Age in specific) that has ever come along, as well as being one of the most innovative and original series ever published. This gorgeous pure pencil piece was used as one of the initial pitch pieces to produce the series, which started at Image Comics in 1995. This illustration was published in the character gallery of issue #6 in 1996. It is signed by Alex Ross in the lower section of the 9" x 12" paper. Winged Victory fills the role of a Wonder Woman type character, while being completely original and with her own driving backstory and motives. Her look and name are derived from the famous Greek statue of Nike known as "The Winged Victory of Samothrace". This piece is in Excellent condition.
