Thirteen years after his Eisner Award-winning, nationally best-selling Mythology--here is the long-awaited Marvel Comics counterpart, a retrospective celebration of the other half of the comics galaxy that is currently ruling the world: Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Panther, the Avengers, the X-Men, Doctor Strange, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Fantastic Four.
"Alex is a legend. Even if you don't consider yourself a comics-head, you should check out his work to see what the best of the form has to offer." --Ta-Nehisi Coates
As he did for the DC characters in Mythology, Alex Ross now brings the heroes of the Marvel universe into dynamic life as never before. Marvelocity includes more than 50 never-been-published sketches, paintings, photographs and working models, and other preparatory art, and a 14-panel portfolio gallery of Marvel's most beloved characters. And Ross has written a new 10-page story pitting Spider-Man against the Sinister Six--the webslinger's most popular villains--that ends with a stunning twist.
With an introduction by J. J. Abrams
NELSON ALEXANDER ROSS was born in 1970 and grew up in Lubbock, Texas. He studied painting at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, and upon graduating at age 20 worked at the Leo Burnett advertising agency as an in-house artist. His first published comics work appeared shortly after that, and he soon went out on his own. In the years since he has won every comics industry accolade many times over, including ten Will Eisner Awards. He lives with his family in Chicago, Ill.
