BATMAN THE LEGEND
BATMAN THE LEGEND CANVAS
ABOUT THE IMAGE: Alex Ross has the unique ability to capture the spirit of the original Golden Age of Comics and bring it forward in a way that makes it feel dynamic and new again. In this homage to the history of the world’s most revered superhero, Ross draws inspiration from one of Bob Kane’s initial images of the Dark Knight. His design and spectacular rendering of the dramatic Gotham City background captures the feeling and deco tonal design of Fritz Lang’s infamous Metropolis poster.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: Alex Ross made his artistic debut at three when, according to his mother, he grabbed a piece of paper and drew the contents of a television commercial he'd seen moments before. By age 13 he was scripting and drawing original comic books. Ten years later? He was hired by Marvel Comics to illustrate Marvel's central characters in the comic book event, Marvels (1994). He has published many books over the years and is known for bringing the "human" side of comic book characters to life!
