Marvelocity: The Art of Alex Ross

Considered one of the greatest artists in the field of comic books, Alex Ross has created some of the most iconic images known to fans today. For nearly 30 years, he has revitalized classic superheroes into works of fine art by illustrating characters including Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Storm from the X-Men, the Avengers, Black Panther and many more.   

In addition to highlighting original art from his most recent book, Marvelocity, visitors will also learn about how Alex Ross developed into a great illustrator through his childhood drawings, preliminary sketches, paintings and 3-dimensional head busts of characters in the Marvel Universe. Hear first-hand from Alex Ross about the making of Marvelocity in an exclusive video interview.
