Book Overview
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
