From Alex Ross, the sensational, award-winning artist of the bestselling "Mythology" comes his never-before-seen "DC Comics Sketchbook". It features an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the stunning black-and-white drawings of the DC characters you loved from "Mythology": Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Black Canary, and many more. All of Alex Ross' extraordinary, hyper-realistic paintings start as pencil on paper, and some of them never get beyond that stage. None of these hundreds of graphite sketches has ever been published before, and most of them will make their only published appearance in "Rough Justice". Plus, in an interview with Chip Kidd, Ross reveals his process and how these drawings translate into the finished paintings. In 2008, Ross became the first cover artist in DC history to work simultaneously on the monthly "Superman" and "Batman" titles. All of the designs he created for an entire year-even those that did not make the final cut-are included here.
Alex Ross has produced a remarkable body of work which has won him every major award in the comics industry. Chip Kidd is a writer, designer and editor whose books include Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross.
