Here is the incomparable cast of the DC Comics universe: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Aquaman, the Green Lantern, and the rest of the Justice League as you ve never seen them before. Mythology brings together the best-loved comic characters in the world, brought to life by the artist Alex Ross. The award-winning designer/writer Chip Kidd and photographer Geoff Spear have teamed up to create this book, with an introduction by M. Night Shyamalan, the director of Signs and The Sixth Sense.
Ross has often been called "the Norman Rockwell of comics," and this book reveals not only his lifelong love of these classic super heroes but also his vision. Mythology takes you into the studio for a behind-the-scenes look at his creative process. The combination of Ross s art and Kidd s kinetic design make images from his most memorable stories - including Kingdom Come, Superman, Peace on Earth, Batman, War on Crime, and Uncle Sam - soar off the more than 280 pages. There are also hundreds of never-before-seen sketches, limited edition prints, and prototype sculptures. Vintage DC comic panels are interspersed throughout, as reference points from which Ross launches his interpretations.
