COMIC-CON 2010: JULY 24-29

Alex Ross Avengers Comic-Con 2010

Read down to the very bottom of this post to get a full view of “Avengers Assemble,” a never-seen-before painting by Alex Ross that was created for the Marvel ArtWorks series.

Ross is a true superstar in the comics world, and the signed “Avengers Assemble” prints should be one of the hot items at Comic-Con International in San Diego at the end of the month. And the prints arebig, at 45 3/4 inches wide and 20 inches tall. There will be 100 canvas prints of piece for sale and 250 paper prints. (The first 100 buyers of the paper prints will also get a bonus print of a Ross sketch.)

I’m still waiting to hear back from Every Picture Tells a Story, the Santa Monica gallery that has exclusive license to commission and create the Marvel ArtWorks series, on the final pricing. I should have their answer next week and I’ll update this post. Every Picture will be at Booth 4713 at Comic-Con.

If there are any “Avengers Assemble” prints left after Comic-Con, they’ll be on sale at Marvel ArtWorks’ website and at the Montana Avenue gallery.

Here’s that full look at “Avengers Assemble”…

  1. And when you first brought to my attention Goliath's eyes is when I also noticed The Wasp.
    What a wonderful work of art, with the shield and the hammer framing the body of technology that is Tony Stark. I also love the reflections in Iron Man's faceplate, where we catch suggestions of the profiles of Cap and Thor.
    Wonderfully inspiring.
